‘Young Rock’ Trailer: Dwayne Johnson’s NBC Sitcom Honors His Father — Watch
Get ready to learn how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson became the man he is today. The new NBC sitcom, “Young Rock,” seeks to take audiences back to the seminal moments of Johnson’s life, from his upbringing amongst wrestling legends, to his teenage years and beyond.
