In addition to conquering every other aspect of the entertainment industry, Dwayne Johnson, who is most well known as WWE Superstar “The Rock,” is preparing to unleash his newest television project; a series for HBO entitled Ballers. Earlier today, Johnson revealed a picture from the set.

The picture, in which Johnson is wearing a rather snazzy suit, shows him getting out of a white SUV and heading into a house. The quote released with the picture says,

“I don’t hold people’s hands… I hold their money”

The show will chronicle the lives of athletes – some retired, some still active – living in Miami. Johnson will play a man by the name of Spencer, an all-pro running back. According to Deadline, Hot Tub Time Machine and Children’s Hospital Rob Corddry will play Spencer’s boss; a financial advisor who tries really hard to fit in and who is confident but clueless at interpreting social cues.

Ballers will also star Boss actor Troy Garity, Homefront’s Omar Benson Miller, Shark Night 3D’s Christine Bently, Anabelle Acosta, and more.

The project is still in the very early stages of production, so there is not a lot of information on storylines or things of that nature.

Lone Survivor director Peter Berg is set to direct the pilot episode, which will be executive produced by Johnson, his Pain & Gain co-star Mark Wahlberg, and Steve Levinson. Evan Reilly will serve as Showrunner.
