Joe Schoen and team front office to be featured in HBO’s Hard Knocks: Offseason with the New York Giants

Giants GM Joe Schoen and his front office will be center stage this summer on HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks: Offseason with the New York Giants,’ a new version of the popular behind-the-scenes show.

HBO, NFL Films, Skydance Sports and the Giants are collaborating on a five-part original series that will debut on Tuesday, July 2 at 9 p.m. on HBO. New episodes will debut each Tuesday through July 30, and the series will be available to stream on Max.

Nilay Shah, the Giants’ senior VP of marketing and brand strategy, said Wednesday that the Giants gave NFL Films “unprecedented” access “beginning the moment the previous season ended.” So it will be interesting to see how the network portrays the ugly autopsy and repercussions of the 2023 season, if they are mentioned at all.

It will also be fascinating if the NFL world gets an inside look at Schoen’s attempts to trade up for North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye before staying at No. 6 overall and selecting LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers.

HBO’s announcement on Wednesday specified that “camera crews will chronicle the team’s every move as general manager Joe Schoen and other members of the team’s front office and staff navigate the critical offseason period from January to July 2024, from the NFL Scouting Combine to free agency, to the NFL Draft, and team minicamps.”

This will provide an inside look at the Giants during the lead-up to the franchise’s 100th season and also to a pivotal, pressure-packed Year Three for the Schoen and Brian Daboll regime.

It will be interesting to see how other NFL teams react if this Giants series allows the organization to avoid having cameras in their training camp, though, like the Jets had with their Hard Knocks run last summer.
