Cam Newton and Panthers on Hard Knocks?

It looks like Cam Newton will be going from $100,000 man to Hard Knocks… the Carolina Panthers are the lead candidate to be featured on the new season of Hard Knocks. The HBO original series chronicles an NFL team’s training camp and upcoming season preparations. Panthers center Ryan Kalil tweeted, “Reliable source telling me possible reality sports doc TV series coming to NC after today’s media presence covering Panther POTA’s.”

This season is especially competitive because of the NFL lockout. Despite other teams’ interest, including the Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos, the Panthers are said to be the front runner because of first overall draft pick Newton. Already proclaiming himself as an entertainer and icon, Newton is no stranger to controversy, after reports surfaced that Newton accepted money to play college football at Auburn.

Showtime reality show on San Francisco Giants

With the success of rival HBO’s sports reality series, Showtime has decided to hop on board and create a series chronicling the San Francisco Giants quest to win a second straight World Series. According to Entertainment Weekly, “Showtime is in early talks with producer Mike Tollin to do a docuseries that focuses on the San Francisco Giants.”

Tollin has already produced acclaimed sports documentary Bonds on Bonds... or for you non-sports fans Varsity Blues or One Tree Hill.

I just hope Brian Wilson’s “Machine” is cast on the show….
