Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced that he will produce and star in the NBC series The Titan Games. Deadline.com offered the following description: “In each episode, competitors from across America will step inside an arena and put themselves to the ultimate test by facing one of six reigning Titans. If a contender can defeat one of the existing Titans, they will take their place as a member of the elite Titan group. Once one becomes a Titan, they will need to be victorious every week to remain at the top. The season finale will end with an epic battle where the Titans compete against one another in hopes to become the last male and female standing.” Read more at Deadline.com.
Powell’s POV: It sounds like American Gladiators with a twist plus Rock as the host. NBC has picked up ten episodes of the series. Rock’s longtime business partner and former WWE creative team member Brian Gewritz is also listed as an executive producer. By the way, The Rock was in the Twin Cities for the Super Bowl festivities. One of my sisters excitedly informed me that Rock arrived at the airport in her home city of New Richmond, Wisconsin.
