Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, which he co-founded with Dany Garcia, is behind a new marching band docuseries, which has been greenlit by Fuse. The high octane docu-soap is set in the competitive world of Drum Corps International.

Currently titled “Hard Corps,” the show hails from Seven Bucks Prods. and 44 Blue Productions with Seven Bucks’ Hiram Garcia and 44 Blue’s CEO Rasha Drachkovitch serving as exec producers.

The “San Andreas” star broke the news on his Instagram, writing to his nearly 35 million followers, “I had no idea how incredibly complex and inspiring the Drum Corp culture is until we produced the series. Can’t wait for you to see it.”

The series will follow two all-star teams, one in Pennsylviania and one in Northern California, who have been battling it out for the championship over the past 20 years.

In a statement, Johnson said, “The entertainers have incredible tenacity, drive and a hard core commitment to excellence. Viewers will be on the edge of their seats seeing who comes out on top.” Garcia added, “At Seven Bucks, we are passionate about shining a light on the hardworking and the talented. This group of performers fall into both of those categories.”

Drachkovitch commented, “‘Hard Corps’ will showcase the exciting intersection of music and sports. With the complex routines and high stakes pressure of competition, this series is part ‘Bring It’ and part ‘Hard Knocks’ — with the intensity of ‘Whiplash’ — it will be sure to entertain and inspire.”

“The energy and competitive edge of Drum Corps is the perfect backdrop to celebrate music and performance with our rapidly expanding audience of culturally diverse New Young Americans. ‘Band on the run’ will have a whole new meaning once ‘Hard Corps’ hits our air. We look forward to working with Seven Bucks Productions and 44 Blue Productions on this series,” said Said Fuse Media president Bill Hilary.

Production on “Hard Corps” began in November at various locations throughout the United States, and will wrap up at the world championships in Indianapolis next year in August.

Aside from “Hard Corps,” Johnson has a busy slate. With Season 2 of “Ballers” coming up on HBO, the former WWE wrestler will star opposite Zac Efron in the new “Baywatch” movie, plus is set to star in Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” film. He’s getting back into comedy, co-starring with Kevin Hart, in “Central Intelligence,” which hits theaters next summer.
