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.
Johnson posted the news on his Instagram with the following message:
The hunt is on… Our @SevenBucksProd teams with @FOXTV and @ImperativeEnt to bring you a dope new show called #BoostUnit. I’ve had a lot of bad ass fun in the FAST & FURIOUS franchise and this show will capture that kind of intense and entertaining action based off of the real life individuals who make up one of the most bad ass (and underground) street units of the #LAPD.”
What do you think? Would you watch Boost Unit?
