TRE CNT

NETWORK: HBO

Summary:

HBO has put in development Tre Cnt (aka Tre Count), a half-hour series about backyard wrestling, from writer Mohamad El Masri (Here and Now), Ballers alum Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia’s Seven Bucks Productions and Insecure‘s Issa Rae and her Issa Rae Productions.

Created by El Masri, Tre Cnt centers around working-class family, neighbors, and friends in Houston’s Third Ward (The Tre) who come together – pooling their talents, resources, savvy, and dreams – to build a unique hip-hop centric backyard-wrestling empire from nothing. They all orbit around Cassius Jones (20s), a dock worker and struggling pro-wrestler, who uses inherited life-insurance money for start-up cash, and the deed to a shotgun house from his grandfather to start his American dream.
