Dany Garcia, Dwayne Johnson, and Brian Volk-Weiss Teaming Up to Produce Docu-series for Disney+. According to Variety, Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company are working together to produce the docu-series “Behind the Attraction” for Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service.
The docu-series is set to take place over 10 one-hour episodes and will take Disney+ subscribers behind the scenes of popular Disney Parks attractions. From their humble beginnings, to the newly refurbished, fans will get an inside look at how the Disney Parks have evolved over the years to bring that classic Disney Magic to guests of all ages.
“Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill from Seven Bucks Productions will executive produce along with Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company,” Variety shared, “Volk-Weiss will also direct the series.”
“’Behind the Attraction’ is the quintessential Disney+ project,” shared Dan Silver, vice president of originals and 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.”
