Dwayne Johnson Has to Monetize Friendships in New ‘Ballers’ Trailer (Video)

HBO series premieres June 21

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is forced to turn his friends into a paycheck in the new trailer for the HBO series “Ballers.”

Johnson stars as retired pro football player Spencer Strassmore, who now works as a sports manager in Miami for other pro athletes. “First piece of free advice: If it drives, flies, or floats, lease it,” he tells two new clients at a wild mansion party.

He also tries to offer guidance to his friend Vernon (Donovan W. Carter), though Vernon seems more interested in maintaining his hard-partying lifestyle than taking his career seriously.

In addition to Johnson and Carter, the series also stars Rob Corddry, Jazmyn Simon, and Troy Garity. Johnson, Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg serve as executive producers.

“Ballers” premieres on June 21 at 10 p.m.
