Two men, lots of muscles. Both Dwayne Johnson and Arnold Schwarzenegger are developing TV shows about California muscle culture during the ‘80s. On Instagram, Johnson posted that he’s developing Muscle Beach, a scripted drama about the bodybuilding scene in Venice Beach for USA. “The ‘80s was a crazy time in Venice Beach with many lost souls. A very crazy time,” wrote Johnson in the caption. If that isn’t enough to get your veins popping, seven-time Mr. Olympia Arnold Schwarzenegger is also developing a show with CBS TV Studios called Pump, which would draw from Schwarzenegger’s personal experience in Venice Beach at the time. Variety reports that the show had originally been sold to Showtime in 2013, and then moved to Hulu, but that no network is attached yet. Hopefully, the two shows will compete against each other in teeny, tiny bikini briefs.
