New HBO and Max Shows and Movies in August 2023

It's time for more Winning Time

Allison Picurro

It's all sports all the time over on HBO and Max in August. The biggest premiere of the month is Season 2 of the maximalist period piece Winning Time, which will chronicle the lead-up to the rematch between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. And for even more sports, there's a new season of Hard Knocks, set at the Aaron Rodgers-occupied New York Jets training camp.

Below, we pulled together our picks for the month, plus a list of what's coming to HBO and HBO Max (Max) in August.

Max streams all HBO shows and movies when they debut on HBO. But not all shows and movies on Max make it to HBO. We'll designate Max exclusives where appropriate.

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty Season 2 (August 6, HBO)

Winning Time's vibe is best described as a mix between Succession's quippy power struggles and Boogie Nights' 1970s Los Angeles flair, but with basketball. The first season followed the L.A. Lakers' Showtime era, beginning with the drafting of Magic Johnson (Quincy Isaiah), and the second will be set during the period after the 1980 NBA Finals through 1984, leading up to the rematch between the era's greatest stars: Magic and Larry Bird (Sean Patrick Small). [Trailer]

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the New York Jets (August 8, HBO)

Anyone heard of this Aaron Rodgers guy? If not, you're about to! This season of the long-running HBO docuseries is set at the New York Jets' training camp as head coach Robert Saleh prepares his team for the upcoming NFL season. Expect Rodgers, who's had quite a time in the news recently, to be prominently featured.
