HBO orders pilot for Dwayne Johnson untitled project

Deadline.com is reporting that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is teaming up with HBO after he received the green light for a pilot order for a thirty minute dramedy.

Johnson will reunite with his Pain & Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg for the pilot and the still untitled project is written by Boardwalk Empire producer Steve Levinson.

The show will chronicle the lives of athletes – some retired, some still active – living in Miami with the former WWE champion playing one of the leading roles. Filming will start this fall.

Johnson will be on television every week starting June 6 with his new reality competition show The Hero which will air on TNT. He hosts and executive produces the show.
