Tre Cnt will follow the story of a young dock worker and struggling pro-wrestler named Cassius Jones, who inherited a life-insurance money and a deed to a shotgun house from his grandfather. With the help of his working-class family, neighbors, and friends, he will be using his inheritance to start start a hip-hop centric backyard wrestling empire in Houston’s Third Ward (The Tre).

The series is written and created by Mohamad El Masri (Here and Now), who will also serve as an executive producer along with showrunner Judah Miller. Dwayne Johnson will executive produce along with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions banner. While Issa Rae will executive produce through her Issa Rae Productions along with Montrel McKay. 3 Arts Entertainment’s Dave Becky, Tom Lassally, and Jonathan Berry are also set as executive producers.
