Announced on Saturday at the winter Television Critics Association press tour, NBC has ordered 11 episodes of "Young Rock".

The pilot is co-written by "Fresh Off the Boat" show's Nahnatchka Khan and Jeff Chiang.

Johnson, who also hosts "Titan Games", will be the executive producer along with longtime partners Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia.

Though it is still not known how the series will be, Johnson recently shared a Flashback Friday photo of himself as a "15 yr old punk kid".

"(I was) forced to leave Hawaii to live in Nashville, TN — where I just enrolled in a new high school — and EVERYONE (students and teachers) treated me like I had the plague and stayed away because they were all convinced I was an undercover cop," he wrote alongside the photo.

"True story. I had a WILD and unbelievable life and journey as a kid and teenager."

The release date of "Young Rock" is yet to be announced.
