The “Young Rock” hits NBC on February 16th, but the superstar gave us our first glimpse earlier this month. And now, we have a full trailer, and it is awesome. Dwayne Johnson himself unveiled it, and it looks like a fun show.
“Humbly shaking my head at the wild Forrest Gump-ish life I’ve lived. And man the lessons I learned along the way from loved ones who now walk in the clouds. Look forward to making ya laugh and maybe a little more. Feb 16th!” he wrote on Twitter.

The trailer goes much deeper than the early glimpse we got, and we see a lot more of The Rock, at all stages. Including the premise of the show, as The Rock sets out to become the President in the year 2032.
We get the rock at three different stages of his life, from a youngster in Hawaii, growing up in a wrestling family (the actor who plays his dad seems to have nailed it), through high school and into his college football era.
It’s on NBC, so there will be a broad approach to it, but man, there is a ton of great stuff here for wrestling fans. The Rock mentions loved ones who walk in the clouds, and the trailer is full of them, including Andre the Giant, Macho Man, The Iron Sheik and the Wild Samoans.

Randall Park and Rosario Dawson are also in the cast, in the present day with Presidential candidate Rock. Park is playing a ramped-up version of himself, transitioning to journalist, interviewing The Rock about his childhood, while Dawson is working on the campaign.
