If you’re anything like me, you’re kinda obsessed with Dwayne Johnson. He’s handsome, funny as hell, and you can just tell that he’s a solid dude.

Created and co-written by Nahnatchka Khan, who gave us Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and Fresh Off the Boat, this show’s sure to be hilarious!

Young Rock will cover three eras of his life – childhood, his wrestling days, and his rise in Hollywood – with each time period featuring a different actor.


Adrian Groulx will play 10-year-old Dwayne, Bradley Constant will bring his 15-year-old version to life, and Uli Latukefu will star as his 18-20-year-old self.

And it looks super funny! In one scene, young Dwayne asks a server for some tequila – though his parents say no – in a nod to his love for the drink.


Who knew the founder of Teremana Tequila loved the spirit before he was even allowed to drink it??

In another clip, he tells a pretty girl that his name is Tomás to try and impress her.


I can totally see high-school Dwayne doing this, LOL!

In an Instagram post sharing the trailer, the 48-year-old wrote, “I really wish my dad was around to see this one. Man, he would’ve been proud.”

“And yes, I was clearly kicking puberty’s ass at 15 years old and becoming a tequila tycoon by the time I was 10,” he joked. “I can’t wait to make you and your families laugh a little and share some life lessons I’ve learned along the way.”
