HBO’s new original series Ballers premiered earlier this week. This show stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and is garnering strong comparisons to Entourage, which is not bad company.

Looking at the lives of former and current football players, the show follows former superstar Spencer Strasmore as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football.

Don’t have an HBO subscription but want to check out this new show? The entire first episode of Ballers is now available to be streamed via Facebook for free. Make sure you’re signed into Facebook and then just head to this page to start watching. Heads up, there’s an awkward intro that plays before the episode so you may want to fast forward past that, unless you want to watch The Rock make some cringe-worthy comments about “love making.” Sign-up for a 30-day HBO Now trial to catch a few more episodes for free.

The series premier of HBO’s The Brink is also available to be streamed for free on Facebook.
