On the heels of their successful film, Pain & Gain Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his co-star Mark Wahlberg are working together again. This time for HBO. Wahlberg has had much success with the network, producing the hit series “Entourage” and “Boardwalk Empire.” Now it’s Johnson’s turn to join the party. With Johnson starring as well as executive producing along with Wahlberg. The half-hour dramedy will chronicle the lives of athletes — some retired some still active — living in Miami. Johnson will play one of them.  Filming is scheduled to begin in the fall.
