Director: Jeffrey Walker

Producer: Nahnatchka Khan, Jeff Chiang

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Uli Latukefu

Produced for NBCUniversal’s flagship NBC network, USA network, streaming service Peacock and the global market, Young Rock filmed at Screen Queensland Studios in Brisbane and on location throughout South-East Queensland during late 2020 and early 2021.

Attracted to Queensland as part of a three-production deal with Universal Studio Group, Young Rock premiered with huge audience ratings on NBC in the U.S. in February and is currently airing on Foxtel and Binge in Australia.

From Nahnatchka Khan (Fresh Off the Boat) and Dwayne Johnson, NBC’s Young Rock is a comedy inspired by Johnson himself. The show was produced by Universal Television, Seven Bucks Productions and Fierce Baby Productions.

Series Co-Creator and Executive Producer Jeff Chiang had much to say about his first experience filming in Queensland, and at Screen Queensland Studios.

“The facilities are great and there are so many amazing locations, so it all works together really well.

“Shooting in Queensland, I’d definitely do that again. It’s been an incredible experience.” said Mr Chiang.

Screen Queensland’s Head of Studios Derek Hall said Screen Queensland Studios was the perfect match for Universal Studios Group.

“Having Universal come in with major projects like these, for such a duration, allows Screen Queensland Studios to continue to increase its reputation to producers in Australia and internationally, while further cementing Queensland as one of the best places in the world to film.”
