The show is for Latino-skewed US cable net Fuse and will follow two teams of drummers – the Cadets from Pennsylvania and the Blue Devils from Northern California – as they battle to win a national drumming championship.
Dwayne Johnson’s prodco Seven Bucks, and 44 Blue, the prodco in which Red Arrow recently took a majority stake.
“It’s an extremely unique culture with very talented individuals and we’re excited to partner with Fuse to share the passion and drive behind these kids who are battling it out to win it all,” said Dwayne Johnson.
“Never before have audiences been given an all-access pass to go behind the scenes of a drum corps,” added Rasha Drachkovitch, cofounder & CEO of 44 Blue.
“We’re looking forward to showcasing the young men and women who make up these highly competitive teams, while also bringing viewers along for the ups and downs of the entire season.”
Dwayne Johnson’s other TV projects include a drama series set in 1980s Venice Beach for TNT, with Seven Bucks producing. Seven Bucks has also teamed with the MCN business of Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1 on a YouTube channel initiative.
It is also making movie reboots Jumanji and Baywatch.
