Apr 18, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck is reporting that Dwayne Johnson will be heading up a new
television reality show titled “The Hero” along with his ex-wife and
business partner Dany Garcia. The duo have teamed up with Ben Silverman’s
Electus Entertainment for this show that heavily integrates social media
to discover the next great hero. In the series, three teams of ordinary
people are sent on a high-stakes global adventure across three continents
to prove what they are able to overcome, sacrifice and undergo for the
strength of their groups. The Rock will not be hosting, but will be
producing the show along with appearing throughout different episodes to

his uncompromising moral character and humanity that proves what an
inspirational hero he is,” said Silverman, founder and chairman of
Electus. “‘The Hero’ will bridge the digital and physical world on the
small screen in an unmatched fashion, enabling fans to determine the fate
of the show’s contestants entirely through social media and onscreen
decision making,” Johnson said. Silverman will unveil “The Hero” during a
panel discussion today at the National Association of Broadcasters confab
in Las Vegas before shopping it to networks.
