Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is expanding his TV empire. Announced over his Twitter account, the actor is producing a “car-focused cop show” for Fox entitled Boost Unit. A joint effort between Johnson and Dany Garcia’s production company Seven Bucks Productions and 20th Century Fox, the show will be based on a real L.A.P.D. unit that focuses on car crimes. According to its official description, Boost Unit “follows the newest recruit of the L.A.P.D.’s Auto Theft Task Force, a notorious getaway driver with a hidden past. The project captures Johnson’s trademark edge and humor as well as the turbo-charged speed of The Fast and the Furious franchise.”
