*Fine a** Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson hit it big at the box office last year with “Pain & Gain,” which co-stars Mark Wahlberg.
And now the two are back at it, but this time for a half-hour dramedy pilot set for HBO.
Centered around a group of retired athletes living in Miami, the series will be executive produced by Stephen Levinson (“Entourage”) and will also involve Peter Berg.
Being a retired athlete might bode well for The Rock, being that he’s a wrester and former football player himself. For years he was some eye candy and brutal entertainment for both women and men. He then took a break to spread his wings in acting and thus far, appears to have done well for himself in that area.
Details of when the new show will air on HBO have yet to be released.
