‘Ballers’ is a new half-hour comedy series starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Looking at the lives of former and current football players, the show follows former superstar Spencer “Mr Henley Sweater Shirt” Strasmore as he gets his life on track in retirement while mentoring other current and former players through the daily grind of the business of football.
Chief Raymond ‘Mr Henley Sweater Shirt’ Gaines is a Los Angeles Fire Department helicopter-rescue pilot. Recently divorced from his estranged wife Emma (Gugino), he calls his daughter Blake (Daddario) to talk about their upcoming trip to San Francisco. Meanwhile, Caltech seismologist Lawrence Hayes (Giamatti) and his colleague Dr. Kim Park (Will Yun Lee) are at the Hoover Dam when an unknown fault nearby ruptures, triggering a massive earthquake which collapses the dam, killing Park in the process. After Ray is called into work, Blake reluctantly decides to go with her mother Emma’s new boyfriend Daniel Riddick (Gruffudd).
Hayes discovers that the San Andreas Fault is starting to shift, causing a massive 9.1 earthquake that starts ripping apart major cities along the fault line. At the same time, Emma is having lunch with Daniel’s sister Susan (Minogue) in a highrise restaurant when the quake hits Los Angeles, destroying much of the city with Susan among its heavy casualties. Ray is able to save Emma, and they barely escape the city on his helicopter. Much of California becomes affected by the quake. In San Francisco, Blake and Daniel are trapped in their car on the basement of the latter’s office. Daniel leaves her to call for help, but he flees in terror, leaving her behind. Blake is saved by Ben (Johnstone-Burt) and Ollie (Parkinson), two brothers that Blake had met moments before the earthquake. After calling her parents, Ray and Emma quickly fly up north to save her.
