The highest paid actor in Hollywood is back in the big screen.

NBC is producing “The Young Rock”, a scripted comedy series based on his childhood and how he grew into the powerhouse we all know and love.

Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known as The Rock, was born on May 2, 1972 in Hayward, California.  His dad was former WWF champion Rocky Johnson.

In 1996, Dwayne joined the WWE and became Rocky Maivia where he joined a group known as “The Nation of Domination” and turned heel.

The series will feature his high and college career in Miami.  We will also see his short lived NFL career before entering the WWE.
