Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will have a new comedy series featured on the NBC network called “The Young Rock.” According to Variety, The Rock will be starring in all eleven episodes, in which he will also serve as Executive Producer for. He’ll be working alongside Nahnatchka Khan, who’s previously directed Always Be My Maybe, and created Fresh off the Boat on ABC.
Khan also wrote for American Dad!. She is currently under contract with Universal Television, which will also serve as the studio for the show. Johnson’s most recent role in “Jumanji: The Next Level“ has grossed over $600 million worldwide, so it’s only natural for him to continue.

Congrats to The Rock!
My formative years, also known as my “Forrest Gump” years were wildly unbelievable, yet incredibly all true. 🤦🏽♂️
