The Rock Headed to HBO
HBO have it made. They’ve long since become synonymous with top-tier programming. But in recent years, with Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and now True Detective in the ascendency, their stock’s never been higher.

Especially since news that The Rock (who seems insistent that people call him Dwayne Johnson for some reason) will head up their incoming football dramedy, Ballers, HBO have more or less won over all of the peoples who exist!

Ballers just got picked up for a full season, will be produced by an all-star squad including Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) and Stephen Levinson (Entourage) who also penned the script. Arguably, this is a frustrating move for Rock fans, who’d no doubt prefer for him to maintain this Action-Star momentum he’ spent over a decade cultivating.
But I’m all good with more Rocky on my tellybox. Are you?
