Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson released the first trailer for Rock and a Hard Place, a documentary about a four-month Miami boot camp aimed at rehabilitating young criminals.
The professional wrestler-turned-actor discussed his own youthful indiscretions and gave a motivational speech to the convicted criminals. The premise of the show offers criminals a chance to avoid a long prison stint. “Don’t fuck this thing up. I mean that,” the Rock said. “I know this boot camp program. I believe in it. And I want the world to see the importance of this program.”
The film, executive produced by the Rock, will focus on 38 felons who take part in the Miami program, which has an “unprecedented” success rate when it comes to convicted criminals staying out of trouble following the arduous boot camp.
“We are gonna beat that demon out of you that has you on the street committing crimes,” one instructor tells the recruits, many of whom are facing prison sentences. Rock and a Hard Place premieres March 27th on HBO.
