Looking for a summer fling? Fall in love with all the exciting new series and films debuting on HBO NOW this July.

This month, the highly-anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones takes its rightful place on the Iron Throne, followed by the third season premiere of Ballers starring Dwayne Johnson. Plus, Golden Globe-nominated actress Issa Rae is back for the second season of the hit comedy Insecure, which follows the friendship of two black women as they deal with their own real-life flaws while attempting to navigate different worlds and cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences.

Other highlights for July include the four-part documentary event The Defiant Ones directed by Allen Hughes, which tells the stories of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, their improbable partnership and their leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. Also streaming in July is The Words That Built America, an unabridged reading of the authentic words of our founding fathers featuring over 100 readers including all the living presidents and vice presidents, a variety of notable politicians, and celebrities like Bryan Cranston, Robert De Niro, Neil Patrick Harris, Meryl Streep and Kerry Washington.
