TVLine Articles: Younger Rock Teaser Trailer, The Chi Promotion and Extra
It’s time to see what The Rock cooked up.
Dwayne Johnson has released the first teaser trailer for NBC’s Young Rock (premiered Tuesday, February 16 at 8 / 7c). As the title suggests, the autobiographical comedy, according to the official summary, focuses on different chapters in Johnson’s life. “From growing up in a strong and resilient family to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family to playing soccer at the University of Miami, the show will explore the insane roller coaster ride that made Dwayne the man he is today and the larger than life characters he met along the way. “
As previously reported, Young Rock will be paired with the new Kenan Thompson comedy Kenan as part of a new comedy block on Tuesday night. As a result, Zoey’s extraordinary playlist will be suspended after the February 9 episode and will be released again in the spring.
Check out the Young Rock teaser below:
I wish my dad was there to see. Maaaaan, he would have been proud.
Yes, I kicked the ass when I was 15 and filmed the tequila tycoon when I was 10
Cant wait to make you laugh and share some life lessons I learned along the way. # YOUNGROCK???? @ SevenBucksProd
