Johnson provided additional insight into “Young Rock” in a separate Instagram post.
“Appreciate all your early buzz for our NBC comedy @nbcyoungrock about all the crazy shit that’s been my life throughout the years,” he wrote. “From growing up in the wild (and cutthroat ) world of pro wrestling in the early 80s to being accused of being a high school undercover cop at 15yrs old because I was already 6’4 220lbs with a FULL Magnum PI mustache and driving my own car.”
“Young Rock” is going to start airing on NBC on Feb. 16. It will also air on NBC’s streaming service Peacock.
