Boost Unit: FOX Developing Cop Drama from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
FOX is getting fast and furious. Deadline reports the network has just bought Boost Unit, a new cop action drama from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions.
The series will center around the LAPD’s Auto Theft Task Force.
From writers Jonny Umansky and Zach Hyatt, Boost Unit will focus on one of the task force’s new recruits, “a notorious getaway driver with a hidden past.” Johnson said the series will invoke much of the high-stakes action found in The Fast & The Furious film franchise.
