The Rock Debuts New Action Series 'The Hero'

Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, is everywhere lately. Not only has he ruled recently with Wrestlemania 29, Pain & Gain and Fast & Furious 6, but he is now back with his latest offering, the TNT action competition The Hero, which premiers this Thursday at 8/7c.

The show, according to TNT is "an epic competition testing the strength, courage, and integrity of a diverse group of nine individuals." The contest is set in Panama and the nine contestants "must climb and hang from skyscrapers, navigate dark underground bunkers and face tough moral dilemmas."

In his own words here is how the Rock opens the promo (see clip below): "Hola America, I am at the top of the world, Central America, Panama!" he exclaims from the top of a skyscraper. "This will be the site of the greatest adventure competition you'll ever get to experience from your couch."

As with every project involving The Rock, the 41-year-old took to Twitter to promote it as only he can. In this tweet, he gives us his own humorous take on the show's promotional poster:
