Dwayne Johnson in new TNT series


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will lead another series on TNT although it won’t be a second season of The Hero, but rather a new series which has a working title of Wake Up Call.

In this series, Johnson will be lending a helping hand to everyday people who are facing enormous challenges in their lives.

TNT ordered eight episodes of the Wake Up Call which is being produced by Electus, 5×5 Media and 7 Bucks Entertainment. Several big names from The Biggest Loser, Survivor, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, The Amazing Race, and other shows will be serving as executive producers.

“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,” said David Eilenberg, senior vice president, unscripted development for TNT and TBS. “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.”
