Wake Up Call was a reality television show that aired on TNT from 2014 to 2015. The show was hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and featured fitness expert Jillian Michaels and chef Rocco DiSpirito as mentors who would travel across the United States to help people in need of a wake-up call.

Each episode followed the same format, with Dwayne Johnson surprising a participant who was struggling with various issues in their lives, such as a lack of motivation, poor health, or a difficult family situation. The participant was usually nominated by a friend or family member who felt that they needed a wake-up call to turn their life around.

Once the participant was selected, Johnson, Michaels, and DiSpirito would travel to their hometown to meet them and assess their situation. They would then work with the participant to develop a plan to help them overcome their challenges and achieve their goals.

The show emphasized the importance of physical and mental health, and each episode focused on different areas of wellness. Michaels would work with participants on their fitness goals, pushing them to break through their physical limits and embrace a healthier lifestyle. DiSpirito would help participants learn how to cook healthy, delicious meals that would fuel their bodies and support their goals.

In addition to physical wellness, the show also addressed emotional and social issues that were affecting participants' lives. Johnson, Michaels, and DiSpirito would connect participants with resources and support systems in their communities to help them overcome these challenges and build a stronger foundation for their futures.

One of the unique aspects of Wake Up Call was the involvement of Johnson himself. As a former professional wrestler and successful movie star, he brought his own experiences with overcoming hardship and achieving success to the show. He was always empathetic and supportive of the participants, and his motivational speeches were a highlight of each episode.

Overall, Wake Up Call was a heartwarming and inspiring show that tackled important issues related to health, fitness, and personal development. It was a refreshing departure from typical reality television shows that often focus on drama and conflict. Instead, Wake Up Call took a positive and proactive approach to helping people turn their lives around, and it left viewers feeling uplifted and motivated to make positive changes in their own lives.

Wake Up Call is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on December 12, 2014.
