Dwayne Johnson Is Creating A 'Fast And Furious' TV Show: We're Not Joking


Our prayers have been answered.

There’s some great news for fans of the “Fast and Furious” franchise as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson just announced that he is developing a television show for Fox called “Boost Unit.” The show is said to center around a real-life LAPD unit that investigates car-focused crimes. Said unit may be TRAP, or the Taskforce for Regional Autotheft Prevention. The show is described as “Fast and Furious” meets “Rescue Me,” the latter of which is of course the FX firefighter drama starring Ford pitchman Dennis Leary.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show “follows the newest recruit of the LAPD's Auto Theft Task Force, a notorious getaway driver with a hidden past.” Things are made cooler by the absence of stupid uniforms as all “Boost Unit” cops get to play police officer while wearing plainclothes and driving cool cars. Honestly, this sounds a lot like the short-lived Fox cop show “Fastlane” from the early 2000s. That show lasted a season and followed more or less the same premise. Still, we love Dwayne Johnson (even if he can't fit into supercars) and are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. The world needs a “Fast and Furious” TV show because two years is just too damn long to wait between films.
