The Rock Teams Up With TNT for New Reality Show

Dwayne Johnson is coming to your TV. He's signed on for a new reality show on TNT debuting in early 2014. The show, which is called Wake Up Call will see The Rock work with and inspire normal people who are trying to achieve their goals or who need a kick-up-the-behind to get their asses in gear.

For David Eilenberg, who is the senior vice president for unscripted development for TNT and TBS, the decision to work with the busiest man in Hollywood was an easy one.

“We had a wonderful time working with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on The Hero, in which he challenged and mentored a group of everyday heroes,” he said. “Wake Up Call evolved from our experience on The Hero and is its natural successor, bringing the human spirit of that show home to take on everyday challenges. In this new series, Dwayne will bring his mission of empowerment and change right to people’s front doors.”

The Rock took to Twitter to tell his followers about the project:

The Rock also posted his first hot from the set of Fast 7 Furious 7:
