TRE CNT, a backyard wrestling series, will be executive produced by Dwayne Johnson, Issa Rae, and Danny Garcia.

The HBO series is a half-hour long and is helmed by Mohamad El Marsi. TRE CNT (a.k.a TRE COUNT) will follow young dockworker and struggling pro-wrestler, Cassius Jones, who inherits life insurance money from his grandfather and uses it for start-up cash and the deed to a shotgun house to start hip-hop centric backyard wrestling.

Rae, Garcia, and Johnson have previously worked with HBO. Rae currently stars in, executive produces, and co-created Insecure and is an executive producer for A Black Lady Sketch Show. Johnson and Garcia produced the series Ballers and Johnson also starred in it.

Johnson’s involvement in the project is super exciting as he previously wrestled as iconic The Rock in WWE before rising to become on of the most famous pro wrestlers of all time and winning tons of championships along the way.
