Seven Bucks Productions is a production company involved with various platforms and mediums, credited with creating original releases for television, film, emerging technologies, and digital networks.[2] The studio was co-created and founded by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia. The company predominately produces a variety of projects, directly in relation with Johnson's film slate.
