The Rock To Develop A Wrestling Comedy For Fox


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and producer Will Ferrell are teaming up to produce a wrestling comedy series for Fox, according to Variety. Andrew Gurland, who created FX’s “Married,” will write the pilot script for the series

“This November will mark the 20th anniversary of my professional wrestling debut,” said Johnson. “I was 24 years old, putting in the hard work, making $40 bucks per match and had no clue of the long journey that lay ahead of me with characters and backstage stories so colorful you’d think there’s no way that can be true. The entertaining show that goes on in front of the crowd pales in comparison to the insanely entertaining show that goes on backstage. Brian and myself can’t wait to tell our stories.”
