Talk about Must-See TV: an all-access, documentary-style, behind-the-scenes look at the NFL's favorite Oakland franchise.

Of course, there may not be a pre-season to film, but HBO's "Hard Knocks" producers can't bank on that, so they're looking for a team to film, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a front-runner, according to ESPN.com. The Raiders, though, are in the conversation.

As far as show production goes, the first lesson you learn is "can you land the Raiders?" With a living legend of an owner (who may or may not be as irratic as he seems), coaching drama and player intrigue (like benching the starting QB for a while), the Raiders just scream for deeper coverage.

But, as Tim Peterson at bleacherreport.com points out, Al Davis probably told those producers to introduce their backsides to his office door on their way out.

The rich storylines will most likely go unexplored, though. Alas.

What if they threw in some Terrell Owens appearances?
