The Rock Dwayne Johnson is set to star in the reality series ‘The Hero’. The American actor and professional wrestler is ready to do so. The show which is Co-produced by Dany Garcia will chart the hunt for “the next great hero”, reports Variety.
The story is that there will be three teams and they will compete in adventures across three continents to show their physical prowess and heroism. Johnson will appear here and there through the new series so he can encourage contestants.
“The Hero will bridge the digital and physical world on the small screen in an unmatched fashion, enabling fans to determine the fate of the how’s contestants entirely through social media and on-screen decision-making,” said Johnson.
“While Dwayne‘s physical stature is unmatched, it is his uncompromising moral character and humanity that proves what an inspirational hero he is,” added Ben Silverman, head of production company Electus Entertainment.
The Hero was created by Silverman, Craig Armstrong (The Amazing Race), Rick Ringbakk (Survivor) and Charles Wachter (Fashion Star).
Johnson will next be seen in forthcoming action film G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
