Given that teaser trailers for “True Detective” Season 2 and the new political satire “The Brink” have been released in the past 24 hours, it was only a matter of time before “Ballers,” HBO’s third summer series premiering June 21, got a clip of its own. Thanks to Dwayne Johnson’s Twitter feed, the official teaser for the upcoming HBO original series has been released, and it looks like a stylish mix between the premium cable network’s own “Entourage” and “Hard Knocks.”

The series stars Johnson as Spencer Strasmore, a former pro football player now working as a financial manager for some of the league’s biggest earners and best players. Given the wrestler-turned-actor’s massive following and natural onscreen charisma, “Ballers” seems like a safe bet to be HBO’s latest half-hour hit. Ron Corddry, Omar Benson Miller, Troy Garity and LaToya Luckett also star.
