TNT is continuing its relationship with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the unscripted space, as the cable net orders “Wake Up Call” to series. “Wake Up Call” will feature Johnson lending a helping hand to everyday people who are facing enormous challenges in their lives, whether they be dead-beat dads, sports teams that don’t gel, or business owners struggling to survive. Johnson will bring his own brand of motivation to each group of people, from 4 a.m. wake-up calls, to emotional reunions and goal setting. (More…)
Duane Johnson Background
From the Wake Up Call website:
By the time Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was 23, he had multiple arrests, his family was evicted and his dreams of being a football player were shattered. He was living at home with no future, no direction and had $7 in his pocket. That’s when he made a choice — to challenge himself every day. And to turn himself around. Rock is returning to his roots, to help those who are struggling and to show them that there can be a better way.
