Dwayne Johnson is an executive producer for Quibi’s latest comedy series “Last Resort,” the streamer announced Tuesday morning. The series centers on a Polynesian family-run resort in Hawaii that finds itself in trouble when a tech billionaire puts in a bid to buy the land.

Johnson, along with Dany Garcia (“Baywatch”) will executive produce for Seven Bucks Productions, with Paul Feig (“Bridesmaids”) and Laura Fischer producing for Powderkeg and Sameer Gardezi producing for Break the Room. Hiram Garcia, Kevin Hill and Brian Gewirtz will also produce on behalf of Seven Bucks Productions. Hannah Kitziger will oversee the project for Quibi.
