Seven Bucks Productions, the production company co-founded by Dwayne Johnson and his manager and ex-wife Dany Garcia, and Spike TV have announced the Rock The Troops show, a grand scale music and entertainment event to celebrate and entertain deployed US Troops serving overseas.

The Spike Original Special will be filmed at a military base overseas, location to be announced in the coming months. The special will bow on Veterans Day 2016 and the star-studded event will feature live performances from headliners from the worlds of music, movies, comedy, sports and more.

“Dwayne Johnson has always made supporting the brave men and women serving overseas a priority throughout his career. Our Mission is to honor, inspire and entertain in an epic way, as only The Rock can. He’ll bring all the heart, humor and big-bad energy that the world loves him for, to this show. I couldn’t have more dedicated partners than Dwayne, Dany and the Seven Bucks team for this very worthy event,” said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer.

“The Seven Bucks team and I are honored to help create this special project that is going to give back to our troops and thank them for all their dedication, bravery and sacrifice,” said Johnson. “We are going to make something truly monumental,” added Garcia.

Spike and Seven Bucks Productions announced a development deal at the Spike Upfront presentation to advertisers and press in March. This is the first special event announced as part of the deal.
