It’s time to see what The Rock’s been cooking.
Dwayne Johnson has unveiled the first teaser trailer for NBC’s Young Rock (premiering Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 8/7c). Like its title suggests, the autobiographical comedy “focuses on different chapters of Johnson’s life,” per the official synopsis. “From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family, to playing football at the University of Miami, the show will explore the crazy rollercoaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way.”
As previously reported, Young Rock will be paired with the new Kenan Thompson comedy Kenan as part of a new Tuesday-night comedy block. As a result, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist will go on hiatus following its Feb. 9 episode and return in the spring.

I wish my dad was around to see. Maaaaan he would’ve been proud.
