Two hit comedy series, “Ballers” starring Dwayne Johnson and “Insecure” starring Issa Rae, will kick off their new seasons back-to-back at the same time as in the US, showing here in Thailand on Monday, August 13 from 9am on HBO and HBO Go via AIS Play and AIS Playbox.



“Ballers” returns for its nine-episode fourth season, at 9am, with a same day primetime encore at 10pm.

Exploring the glamorous, often cut-throat, world of pro football through a group of past and present players striving to stay in the game, “Baller” stars Johnson as ex-superstar Spencer Strasmore, who has reinvented himself as a financial manager for today’s players.

After refusing to compromise his principles by joining an alliance with the filthy-rich Anderson brothers to move a football franchise to Las Vegas, Spencer and his partner Joe set out to expand their foothold in the client-management business, weighing an opportunity to purchase an extreme-sports LA outfit.

 

“Insecure” begins its eight-episode third season, at 9.30am, with a same day primetime encore at 10.30pm. 

Starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Issa Rae as Issa, Yvonne Orji as Molly, Lisa Joyce as Frieda, Natasha Rothwell as Kelli and Amanda Seales as Tiffany, the series follows the friendship of two African American women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences. In the third season, Issa attempts to navigate her complicated relationship with Daniel (Y’lan Noel), a childhood friend and on-and-off-again fling who’s looking to take his music career to the next level. On the work front, she begins to question her role at the non-profit “We Got Y’all” and Molly sets boundaries in order to concentrate.
