Social media’s healthy obsession with fitness hasn’t gone unnoticed by the world of TV.
Details on Dwayne Johnson‘s new venture and why it might spell trouble for Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s new series below…
‘Muscle Beach’ is the name of Johnson’s new TV series and was created by the athletic actor with the help of Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions and Beau Flynn’s Flynn PictureCo.
What it’s all about?
Set in the 80s, the show follows the lives of members at a legendary gym in Venice Beach keen to build their body and their lives in the sunny but often cold world that is Los Angeles.
Each hour-long episode will air on the USA Network and will compete with ‘PUMP’, the bodybuilding-based TV series built by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Why Johnson may have a problem on his hands? ‘PUMP’ is also set in the same place (Venice Beach) and at the same time (circa the 80s.)
Add to that the fact that ‘PUMP’ is based on Arnold’s audience-impressing formative years as a bodybuilder, the show already packs more appeal than Johnson’s project.
