Young Sheldon won't be the only star of mini-me TV, as NBC announced that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will star in a single-camera comedy series inspired by his life called - what else? Per NBC, Johnson "will appear in each episode as the focus and inspiration of the series will be about his formative years".
Titled Young Rock, the project - which has snagged an 11-episode Season 1 order - will serve as an exec producer as well as a cast member.
The Rock will executive produce under his Seven Bucks Productions alongside Nahnatchka Khan, Jennifer Carreras, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia and Brian Gewirtz. "We're going to find him [Young Rock], for example, wreaking havoc in the streets of Hawaii, when I was a very young teenager getting arrested seemingly every single week doing a lot of things I shouldn't have been doing, but still a good kid".
"My formative years, also known as my "Forrest Gump" years were wildly unbelievable, yet incredibly all true".
On the big screen, Johnson now stars in "Jumanji: The Next Level", and he next appears in "Jungle Cruise".
Can you smell what The Rock is cooking? Now the host of NBC's "The Titan Games", Johnson has become one of the world's biggest and brightest stars, and will likely bring in a sizable audience to any television show he'll appear in.
