For the first time ever I’m bringing you along with me to experience my insanely unbelievable childhood, teenage years and adolescence. My close friends refer to me as the big, brown tattooed Forrest Gump because of everyone and everything that has weaved in and out of my surreal life. I’ve seen it all my friends – success, failure, homelessness, evictions, suicide attempts, arrests, hard times, good times, low times, high times. And all this shit happened to me by the time I turned 21  This is a show about my young life. And the lessons I learned. The good, the bad, the ugly but ALWAYS FUNNY  Excited to bring you on this journey of taking a look at my past life, thru the lens of what the future holds. And who knows what that might  be. @nbc @sevenbucksprod #fiercebabyproductions #YOUNGROCK Coming soon!

Young Rock will be an 11-episode sitcom that will be inspired by Dwayne Johnson‘s unbelievable childhood which he likens to Tom Hanks’ award-winning film Forrest Gump. Johnson, who has also signed on as an executive producer through his Seven Bucks Productions banner, is expected to appear in each episode. He previously starred in HBO’s sports drama Ballers which aired its final season last year.

The pilot will be co-written by Khan and Jeff Chiang, who will also serve as executive producers along with Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz and Jennifer Carreras. The series is a co-production between Universal Television, Seven Bucks Productions and Khan’s Fierce Baby Productions.
