HBO green lights pilot for project involving Dwayne Johnson



Deadline.com is reporting that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is teaming up
with HBO after he received the green light for a pilot order for a thirty
minute dramedy. Johnson will reunite with his Pain & Gain co-star Mark
Wahlberg and director Peter Berg for the pilot and the still untitled
project is written by Boardwalk Empire producer Steve Levinson. The show
will chronicle the lives of athletes – some retired, some still active -
living in Miami with the former WWE champion playing one of the leading
roles. Filming will start this fall. Johnson will be on television every
week starting June 6 with his new reality competition show The Hero which
will air on TNT. He hosts and executive produces the show.
