Fans of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are in for a treat this February.
On Saturday, the beloved wrestler-turned-actor gave his Twitter and Instagram followers a sneak peek at Young Rock, NBC’s upcoming sitcom based on Johnson’s life. Debuting a delightful teaser trailer for the series, created and executive produced by Fresh Off the Boat‘s Nahnatchka Khan, Johnson wrote, “I wish my dad was around to see. Maaaaan he would’ve been proud.”
Young Rock received a straight-to-series order for 11 episodes from NBC, and will depict Johnson’s life from when he was a child and teenager growing up in the world of pro wrestling to his college football days and Hollywood beginning. Johnson is set to appear in every episode, with younger versions of himself played by Adrian Groulx, Bradley Constant, and Uli Latukefu.
NBC first teased Young Rock in November, with a gigantic inflatable Rock earning a spot in New York City’s iconic Macy’s Day Parade — ’80s fanny pack and all.
Young Rock premieres Feb. 16 on NBC; episodes streaming next day on Peacock.
