About the show

“Young Rock” focuses on different chapters of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s life.  It includes his time with his family and professional wrestling family. They will also explore his time playing football at the University of Miami.  The TV series will essentially explore how Dwayne became the man he is today.

Adrian Groul – “Dwayne Johnson (Age 10)” statement

I’m so honored to be Dwayne Johnson.  I have a WWE wrestling game and every single time I play that game I choose The Rock.

Bradley Constant – “Dwayne Johnson (Age 15)” statement

There are multiple timelines. In my timeline, teenage Dwayne, he is a kid coming to a new town and a new school. He has to make new friends.  He has to make a new impression with a splash. There are lots of ups and downs but overall it’s feel-good vibes.

Uli Latukefu – “Dwayne Johnson (Age 18-20)” statement

I think the most exciting thing for me about the show is kind of the opportunity to get a look inside Dwayne’s life…We travel from Hawaii to Miami and it’s a really interesting story.
