Season 1

Wake Up Call is an American reality television series hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in which he lends a helping hand to everyday people who are facing enormous challenges by getting them to understand they have the power to change their own lives.

Opening introduction (The Rock):
 

"Life is anything but predictable. By the time I was 23 years old, I had multiple arrests. My family was evicted. My dream of being a pro football player was shattered. I had 7 bucks in my pocket. That's when I made a choice. I rebuilt myself, and I started over.

"This show is about real people picking themselves up and saying, 'I can do better.' The people I'll be helping - everyday Americans down on their luck. If you're willing to meet me halfway and challenge yourself...you've got the power to change your life. It's time to make a choice. It's time to take a stand. It's time for your wake up call."

From dysfunctional homes and dead-beat dads to sports teams that don't gel and businesses struggling to survive, Rock descends into the chaos of everyday problems to pull good people up by the bootstraps, reminding them what hard work, passion and true discipline can accomplish.

Each segment on Wake Up Call is a journey for Rock and his team. With early wake-up calls, emotional reunions and near-impossible goals, everyone who comes in contact with Rock's electric sense of personal motivation will grow from it, finding inner strength and heart.

Each episode features one of Rock's celebrity friends as a special guest mentor, including UFC President Dana White, Chef Rocco DiSpirito, celebrity stylist and host Jeannie Mai, as well as rapper/producer Juicy J.

Wake Up Call is produced by Electus, 5x5 Media and 7 Bucks Entertainment. Executive producers are Ben Silverman (The Office, Jane The Virgin), Chris Grant (Gladiators, King of the Nerds), Corie Henson (Running Wild with Bear Grylls) and Jimmy Fox (Fashion Star, King of the Nerds) of Electus; Craig Armstrong (Survivor, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Food Revolution), Rick Ringbakk (The Amazing Race, Fashion Star) and Charles Wachter (King of the Nerds, American Gladiators) of 5x5 Media; and Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia (Snitch, The Hero) of 7 Bucks Entertainment.
