Disney+ Joins Forces With The Rock for New Docuseries, ‘Behind the Attraction’
Disney+ is once again adding yet another program to its ever-growing list of original content. According to Variety, Disney, along with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill of Seven Bucks Productions and Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company will produce Behind the Attraction, a 10-episode docuseries that “takes viewers into the history of how popular Disney attractions and destinations came to be, how they have changed over time, and how fans continue to obsess over them.”
“’Behind the Attraction’ is the quintessential Disney+ project,” said Dan Silver, vice president of originals – unscripted content for Disney+. “Best-in-class storytellers collaborating across multiple Disney units to mine and pull back the curtain on our rich Disney history. Dwayne, Dany, and Seven Bucks have not only established themselves as some of the most accomplished and prolific producers across multiple genres, but have been long time valued members of The Walt Disney family. And Brian and Nacelle’s track record, mindset, and uber-geekdom make them the ideal partners for this project. This is going to be a special series.”
