If there’s one thing any TV network worth their salt would realize, it’s not to let go of talent like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, no matter the project. Hence, despite moderate reviews, Johnson will officially return to the Stephen Levinson-adapted Ballers for Season 2 in 2016.
HBO surprised all of us yesterday with the trailer premiere of True Detective Season 2, but buried within the announcement was that Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers and Jack Black geopolitical comedy The Brink would also premiere on June 21. Now, both series have their very own trailers to take in as well, so take a look!
The year may be coming to a close, but rolling over in 2015 will bring one of HBO's most exciting lineups to date. Check out our first look at official footage from 'Game of Thrones' season 5, J.J. Abrams' 'Westworld' reboot, The Rock's 'Ballers,' Jack Black's 'The Brink' and many more in a new year-end trailer from HBO!
Just as we said with HBO's earlier pickups of Jack Black-Tim Robbins comedy 'The Brink' and David Fincher's 'Utopia,' the final seasons of 'True Blood,' 'The Newsroom' and 'Boardwalk Empire,' atop the cancellations of 'Family Tree' and 'Hello Ladies' have left some major holes to fill in the lineup. Cue another series order, this time for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pro-football comedy 'Ballers,' with such talent attached as Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Rob Corddry!
Dwayne Johnson's movie stock remains consistently on the rise, but should the 'Fast & Furious' actor decide to make forthcoming HBO pilot 'Ballers' a permanent home, he'll at least be in good company. 'Hot Tub Time Manchine 2' star Rob Corddry has officially signed on to the new Mark Wahlberg-produced sports dramedy, but will it be a permanent position?
