Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is getting his own TV series on HBO, according to a report by Deadine.com.
HBO has ordered a pilot for a half-hour “dramedy” produced by and starring the former WWE Champion. The project will “chronicles the lives of athletes – some retired some still active – living in Miami,” including Johnson.
The project will be co-produced by Mark Wahlberg, who co-starred with Dwayne in the new “Pain & Gain” film.
Rock recently hinted at the project in his “Rock Talk” Twitter Q&A: “After Hercules, I’ll partner up w/ Wahlberg – cool HBO project, then possibly FAST 7 – haven’t decided yet on that. #RockTalk.”
Filming is scheduled to begin this later this fall.
