FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons have announced they will be featured on HBO Sports' documentary series Hard Knocks this summer.

The five-part weekly series debuts Aug. 5 and concludes Sept. 2.

The annual show gives fans an all-access, behind-the-scenes look at the daily lives and routines of players and coaches as they prepare for the upcoming NFL season.

Falcons owner Arthur M. Blank says the team is ''excited about the opportunity to give our fans a behind the scenes look at what it takes to prepare an NFL team for the rigors of a 16-game regular season and beyond.''

Hard Knocks is now its ninth season.

Other teams previously featured on the award-winning reality series include the Ravens, Chiefs, Jets and Dolphins. The Cowboys and Bengals have each been featured twice.
