Young Rock will run for 11 episodes on NBC. The series will depict Johnson’s life through key-points in his upbringing. We’ll see the young Rocky Johnson growing up in the world of pro wrestling, then follow him as he enters the world of college football days, and as well as his early days in Hollywood.
Dwayne Johnson is said to appear in every episode, but we’ll see actors Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, and Uli Latukefu tacking younger versions of himself.
Nahnatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang co-wrote the pilot. Young Rock sees Universal Television producing, alongside Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions and Khan’s Fierce Baby Productions.
