Dwayne Johnson’s “Ballers” Comes to Blu-ray/DVD Just in Time for Father’s Day

Ballers, “the next great HBO series” (Crave Online) which has become the network’s biggest comedy in a decade, is available NOW on Blu-ray™ with Digital HD & DVD. Starring Dwayne Johnson, the “funny, fast moving” comedy (Entertainment Weekly) follows a group of past and present football players trying to figure out where the game ends and life begins, all while keeping their cool and having each other’s backs.

Spencer Strasmore (Johnson) is a retired football superstar who is trying to reinvent himself as a financial manager for current players in sun-soaked Miami. His inner circle includes Ricky (John David Washington, former pro-football player), a talented but volatile wide receiver who seeks to balance his off-field antics with his passion for the game; Charles (Omar Miller), a reluctantly retired lineman who’s finding it hard to adjust to civilian life; and Vernon (Donovan Carter), a player with a rookie contract, whose promise never to forget “where he came from” brings scores of hangers-on into his life, and lands him in big financial trouble. Though they’re pros when it comes to playing the game, each one has a harder time navigating life off the field.

I am new to this HBO series, but from what I have seen so far this is a great choice for any Dwayne Johnson fan, a.k.a. The Rock. It’s well written and played, just as I would expect from HBO.

If you’re shopping for a last minute Father’s Day gift, this is a great choice. Available now, so you can even pick it up the day of.

Ballers: The Complete First Season will be available to own on Blu-ray with Digital HD ($19.95) and DVD ($14.95) and includes behind-the-scenes looks into all ten episodes.
