Corruption, greed, violence, betrayal…and recess. HBO Canada brings the mean streets to the schoolyard in The Yard, a mockumentary series debuting Friday, July 8 at 9 p.m. ET/MT with two back-to-back episodes.

In the six-part, half-hour miniseries viewers are taken inside a schoolyard by an unseen Documentarian (voiced by Paul Gross) who records students' behaviour during recess. Through interviews with the kids, he sees adult-world scenarios played out by two schoolyard gangs: 12-year old leader Nick; his idealistic younger brother J.J., the brains of the outfit; weird pal Johnny, his lieutenant; big girl Suzi, the muscle; and his six-year-old little brother Adam, who just wants to play. Nick's crew tries to keep the peace while defending their turf against: Frankie Miladic, leader of his gang of self-indulgent, cruel bullies; "Pork Chop" and his brother Mickey; while also fighting his affection for Frankie's popular and influential sister Mary, leader of the girls.

Following its two-part premiere, subsequent episodes of The Yard will debut Fridays at 9:30 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada.

Looking forward to this one. I did an actor reel last year for the kid that plays JJ (Alex Cardillo). He and his family are from Ottawa. He also played the son on Durham County to the crazy chick.
