Dwayne Johnson has so much going on these days, I doubt he’s going to find the time to run for president. The Rock will now host and executive produce The Titan Games, a new physical competition series for NBC that just got green-lit for 10 episodes. Check out the teaser above.
Johnson broke the news on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon after the Super Bowl. “We wanted to create a new kind of athletic competition unlike anything ever attempted before,” he said. Johnson explained he got the idea for his series from his favorite show, American Ninja Warrior. So perhaps it comes as no surprise that he’ll be teaming up with that show’s executive producer, A. Smith & Co., on The Titan Games.
In each episode, contestants from across the country will test their physical limits by facing one of six Titans. If the competitor beats the Titan, he or she dethrones them from the group and takes their title. However, the newly anointed Titan must compete every week to maintain their standing. The final episode will feature an inter-Titan battle, where they will battle each other to become the last male and female standing.
The full trailer for Johnson's new film Skyscraper also debuted Sunday night. It stars Johnson as a former FBI Hostage Rescue team leader who evaluates security for skyscrapers. Naturally, a fire strikes building he’s assessing in China, leaving his family trapped inside, and (presumably) Johnson saves the day because Hollywood.
