‘Young Rock,’ an Autobiographical Series About Dwayne Johnson, Coming Soon


Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson is working with NBC on an autobiographical comedy series that is based on his younger years, which has been called by his friends as Forrest Gump-ian. Johnson will appear in the 11 episodes of the series, called Young Rock. Joining him as an executive producer is Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh Off the Boat).

In the announcement, Johnson mentions that we will see his wild childhood and the journeys that got him to where he is now. The show will take us from growing up in Hawaii until having to leave, to Nashville, then Miami for university where Johnson played football. The series will have it all, wreaking havoc, arrests, his pre-WWE wrestling, and his iconic grandmother. He ended his announcement showing some pictures of himself over the years as a teaser.

The compelling story is about not forgetting where you came from and the road you took to get where you are today. NBC, Seven Bucks Productions, and Fierce Baby Productions are the companies working together to bring us Young Rock. It has no casting or release date as of yet.
