According to Variety Magazine Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company are teaming up to produce the docuseries “Behind the Attraction” for Disney Plus.

The series will take viewers into the history of how popular Disney attractions and destinations were created, the many changes over the years, and how fans’ obsessions continue to grow. Disney Plus has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of this in-depth series which features interviews with people behind the scenes, including Disney Imagineers as well as fans.

Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, and Kevin Hill from Seven Bucks Productions will share executive producer credits with Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry, and Cisco Henson from The Nacelle Company. Volk-Weiss will also direct the series.

The Nacelle Company previously found success with the Netflix docuseries “The Toys That Made Us,” exploring the history of popular toys. It is currently producing the “Mad About You” revival for Spectrum Originals and Sony Pictures Television.

“’Behind the Attraction’ is the quintessential Disney+ project,” said Dan Silver, vice president of originals – unscripted content for Disney Plus. “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.”

The most recent Seven Bucks production was Johnson’s film “Hobbs & Shaw.” The company has also worked with Johnson on other projects like “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and the HBO series “Ballers”. Seven Bucks is producing Johnson’s upcoming film “The Jungle Cruise,” based on the classic Disney attraction of the same name. “The Jungle Cruise” is slated to hit theaters next July.

Disney Plus is gearing up for their November launch. The new streaming service plans to offer both scripted and unscripted originals in addition to library content. Unscripted shows at the service include “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” from National Geographic, and “Encore!” executive produced by Kristen Bell.
