Dwayne Johnson is a very busy individual and projects just keep coming and coming. The former WWE World Heavyweight champion announced that his production company Seven Bucks Productions is teaming up with FOX to bring a new show called Boost Unit.
The scripted cop drama revolves around the newest recruit of the LAPD’s Auto Theft Task Force, who’s a notorious getaway driver with a hidden past. Variety described the show as a “high-octane, action-packed hour,” and is said to capture Johnson’s “trademark edge and humor, along with the turbo-charged speed of the Fast and the Furious franchise.”
In a statement, Johnson said, “We’re bringing to life the high stakes street pursuits and grueling work of this very specialized elite task force and we’re excited to partner with Imperative Entertainment to combine an epic mix of gripping action and sophisticated storytelling.”
Writing on Twitter, The Rock added that the show will capture that kind of intense and entertaining action based off of the real life individuals who make up one of the most bad ass (and underground) street units of the LAPD.
