Having solidified his place as a bonafide film and television star already, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is now ready to take on a new challenge: stepping behind the camera.
Johnson’s company, Seven Buck Productions, is currently producing a new docuseries for the Fuse network on marching bands. The fast-paced “docu-soap,” with the working title Hard Corps, will give viewers a never before seen look into the competitive world of Drum Corps International as it follows a pair of top tier drum corp teams, one from California and one from Pennsylvania, that have been competing for the championship for the past 20 years.
In a recent Instagram post announcing the series, the former pro-wrestler turned actor beamed with excitement and told of a new found respect he has for the drum culture.
“I had no idea how incredibly complex and inspiring the Drum Corp culture is until we produced the series,” Johnson wrote. “Can’t wait for you to see it.”
“The entertainers have incredible tenacity, drive and a hard core commitment to excellence,” Johnson later said via official statement. “Viewers will be on the edge of their seats seeing who comes out on top.”
Currently in production with filming set to wrap at the world championship next August, Hard Corps has a tentative premiere date for fall 2016.
