HBO Enlists Dwayne Johnson & Issa Rae For ‘TRE CNT’
HBO TRE CNT: HBO has decided to roll out a new show, titled ‘TRE CNT (TRE COUNT)‘ which is a backyard wrestling show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Issa Rae. This is following the success of Netflix’s all-female wrestling show, Glow.
The 30-minute series follows a young dock worker, Cassius Jones who struggles with getting into the professional wrestling business.
He uses his inheritance gotten from life insurance and a deed to his grandfather’s house to build what is described as “a hip-hop centric backyard wrestling empire in Houston’s Third Ward.”
His family members and friends support him all through.
This would not be the first time Dwayne Johnson and Issa Rae would be working with HBO. They had worked with them on Baller and Insecure, respectively.
They would both be executive producers on the upcoming show. Mohamed El Masri is credited as a scriptwriter. He has previously written HBO’s ‘Here and Now’ and Netflix’s ‘October Faction’. Also, Mohamed is currently producing an upcoming CIA series starring Brie Larson for AppleTV+.
