Sep 5, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

TNT has given the green light for the reality TV show called The Hero
which will be headlined and executive produced by Dwayne “The Rock”
Johnson. His ex-wife and producing partner Dany Garcia will also
executive-produce the show. Set for a Summer 2013 premiere, The Hero will
bring 10 ordinary people together in a house with various missions
assigned to them which will test their brains, browns, and morality. The
show will challenge their limits to see what they are willing to overcome,
under, or sacrifice, for the sake of their fellow contestants to be the
hero. The show will incorporate the use of social media into everything
from pre-production, to casting, to live broadcasts. “Dany and I couldn’t
be more excited to enter into our first official foray in TV production,²
said Dwayne Johnson. “The Hero speaks to everything I believe in when it
comes to challenging ourselves, to becoming better people every day and to
making the right choices while growing from the wrong ones. Bridging the
digital and physical world on the small screen in a way that’s never been
done before will enable fans to use social media and on-screen decision
making to determine the fate of the show’s contestants, and our goal is to
make each TV moment impactful and exciting.” The people behind the show
include Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk, Ben Silverman, and Charles Wachter
who between them have create shows such as Survivor, Fashion Star, The
Biggest Loser, The Office, and others.
