AceShowbiz - Dwayne Johnson is to appear in the upcoming NBC comedy series "Young Rock", inspired by his childhood.
The "Jumanji: The Next Level" star will also serve as executive producer on the show via his Seven Bucks Productions, and took to his Instagram page on Friday (January 10) to tease the project.
"We're gonna show the good, the bad, the ugly. But most importantly, we're gonna show the always funny," the wrestler-turned-actor penned alongside various childhood snaps.
The "Ballers" star was born on 2 May, 1972 in California, and briefly lived in New Zealand before returning to the U.S., dividing his time between North Carolina, Connecticut, Hawaii, Tennessee and Pennsylvania.
Dwayne found fame as The Rock in 1997 - a year after he got his start with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) - and was a wrestler for eight years, before stepping away from the ring in 2004 to pursue an acting career.
The "Baywatch" star returned to wrestling from 2011-2013, as a part-time performer, before announcing his retirement in 2019.
