Foxtel and Binge has secured the Australian broadcast rights for the new comedy series based on the life of Dwayne Johnson.

As Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson runs for president in 2032, he takes a comedic look back at his extraordinary life through the outrageous stories of his family and youth that shaped him into the man he is today.

He explores his childhood years living amid influential wrestling icons while his dad rose to fame in the business, his rebellious teenage years attending high school in Pennsylvania, and his football years teamed up with powerhouse players at the University of Miami.

In his telling, Johnson explains that while his experiences have been larger than life, he remains a down-to-earth guy who still relates to the American people.

The series was filmed locally on the Gold Coast and stars Australia’s own Uli Latuekfu as the 18-20 year old version of Dwayne Johnson.

The series will also feature guest appearances by comedian Ronny Chieng.

YOUNG ROCK – Season 1 premieres Sunday May 2 at 6.30pm on FOX8 or watch On Demand

Young Rock will also be available to stream on BINGE from May 2
