TNT Orders Reality Series ‘Wake Up Call’ from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson

TNT has already teamed with 'The Rock' for reality show 'The Hero'

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.

TNT has ordered eight hourlong episodes of “Wake Up Call” and will debut the series next year.

“We had a wonderful time working with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson on ‘The Hero,’ in which he challenged and mentored a group of everyday heroes,” said David Eilenberg, senior vice president, unscripted development for TNT and TBS. “‘Wake Up Call’ evolved from our experience on ‘The Hero’ and is its natural successor, bringing the human spirit of that show home to take on everyday challenges. In this new series, Dwayne will bring his mission of empowerment and change right to people’s front doors.”

“Wake Up Call” is produced by Electus, 5×5 Media and 7 Bucks Entertainment, with Ben Silverman, Chris Grant, Jimmy Fox, Craig Armstrong, Rick Ringbakk, Charles Wachter, Dany Garcia and Johnson serving as exec producers.
