The Rock is ready for boot camp.
Dwayne Johnson and HBO are partnering up for the documentary Rock and a Hard Place, which follows incarcerated young men facing jail time who are given a second chance via the Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp Program.
“I want the world to see the importance of this program,” Johnson narrates over the trailer.
The series was inspired by Johnson’s own issues with the law when he was younger. “By the time I was 16, I had been arrested eight or nine times for a variety of things, and can relate to what these kids are going through,” Johnson previously told Variety when the documentary was announced.
Now these kids get a second chance:
I started getting arrested at 14yrs old. Our new @SevenBucksProds project means a lot to me. We take you inside one of the most hardcore prison boot camps in the world. Their success rate is unprecedented. In 2012 when I walked into this Dade County facility to speak with these offenders about taking advantage of their second shot at life, I knew then this was a place the world needed to see. All lives matter. Break them down hard. Build them up strong. Change is real. Set your calendars for MARCH 27th on @HBO. #HBODocumentariesFilm #SevenBucksProds #RockAndAHardPlace
The documentary premieres on March 27 on HBO.
