Variety reports that Dwayne Johnson is set to produce a new series called “TRE CNT” (a.k.a “TRE COUNT”) for HBO that will be based around the creation of a backyard wrestling promotion. The synopsis reads as follows:
“The series focuses on Cassius Jones, a young dock worker and struggling pro-wrestler, who uses inherited life-insurance money for start-up cash and the deed to a shotgun house from his grandfather to start a hip-hop centric backyard wrestling empire in Houston’s Third Ward (The Tre) with the help of his working-class family, neighbors, and friends.”
Johnson and his ex-wife Dany Garcia will executive produce along with several other individuals across multiple banners while Mohamad El Masri is writing the series. To read the article, click here.
