HBO has confirmed that the documentary “Rock and a Hard Place” will debut Monday, March 27 at 10PM (ET/PT).

The HBO Documentary film looks at incarcerated young people who are granted a second chance: the opportunity to trade an extensive prison sentence for a fresh start by completing the famed Miami-Dade County Corrections & Rehabilitation Boot Camp, a one-of-a-kind, six-month program in which drill sergeants push inmates to their limit, encouraging them to learn from past mistakes and become constructive members of society who are substantially less likely to return to prison.

Dwayne Johnson, whose own experiences with the law as a youth inspired the special, appears in the documentary. Johnson also serves as an executive producer of the documentary alongside his Seven Bucks Productions co-founder, Dany Garcia and Rasha Drachkovitch, co-founder and CEO of 44 Blue Productions.

Directed and produced by Jon Alpert and Matthew O’Neill, HBO has premiered a first trailer for “Rock and a Hard Place,” which is embedded below:
