The Yard premieres July 8 on HBO Canada

Premieres Friday, July 8 at 9 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes

From The Movie Network and Movie Central, this six-part, half-hour mockumentary-style miniseries follows the day-to-day struggle for supremacy between two schoolyard gangs: 12-year-old Nick and his crew, who try to keep the peace while defending their turf against the ruthless Dos Santos brothers, who will stop at nothing to regain control of the Yard. Set in an urban school and starring kids mostly between the ages of 10 and 13, the series is peppered with comedic, satirical, sometimes provocative elements, each episode an allegory for something going on in the real world but satirically played out in an elementary schoolyard. Starring Alex Cardillo, Shemar Charles and Quintin Colantoni and Executive Produced by Paul Gross, Frank Siracusa, David Eddie and Michael Mabbott
