‘Young Rock’ Trailer: The NBC Series Explores Dwayne Johnson’s Past and Future

Dwayne Johnson is the hardest working man in Hollywood. The man has built his name into a powerful brand (still waiting for your tequila to come to Canada, Rock). Johnson will jump between TV and film like the flip of the switch. For one of the highest grossing actors, you don’t really see that level of commitment to the small screen.

But Johnson has a good partnership with NBC and that has led to the first trailer for the upcoming series Young Rock. When it was first announced, it was stated to explore Johnson’s upbringing in the ’80s and ’90s. But now we see that it will also head to an imagined 2032 where Johnson is running for President of the United States.

I’m a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, so I will definitely be giving this series a chance. One has to imagine if the show is successful (I’d be shocked if it wasn’t) that future seasons might even focus on Johnson winning the presidency and his first term in office. Heck, maybe we’ll even see the series cover his early wrestling and acting career.

Plot Synopsis:

As Dwayne Johnson runs for president in 2032, he takes a comedic look back at his extraordinary life through the outrageous stories of his family and youth that shaped him into the man he is today. He explores his childhood years living amid influential wrestling icons while his dad rose to fame in the business, his rebellious teenage years attending high school in Pennsylvania, and his football years teamed up with powerhouse players at the University of Miami. In his telling, Johnson explains that while his experiences have been larger than life, he remains a down-to-earth guy who still relates to the American people.

Young Rock premieres February 16, 2021 on NBC.
