According to "Variety," the untitled four-part docuseries will center on Formula One managing director Ross Brawn, who in 2009 purchased the Honda team, changed its identity to Brawn GP, and guided it to two unheard-of championship titles.
Reeves, who will host the show, has already begun interviewing guests. Former Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo, who Reeves was seen with last month, and drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello are among those said to be on board. Even Brawn himself is expected to participate.
Reeves was spotted last week at the British Grand Prix in Silverstone, UK, where he discussed the documentary series with a local racing journalist.
"We want to share that extraordinary great tale" (of Brawn). There is so much to discuss," he declared. "I was so moved by the tale that my friend was telling me. We thought, "Well, let's tell that tale, let's try and tell that narrative. He was really working for Brawn back in the day in PR, so let's try and tell that story," the "Matrix" star remarked.
"Being able to understand more about what was happening in Formula One that year has been very fantastic. The breakaway series, FOTA (the Formula One Teams Association), new rules, and vehicles weren't the only factors. In fact, there was a lot going on in Formula One at the time. The Formula One universe was truly remarkable.
"I mean, it's always spectacular, but I believe something truly unique happened in that year with Brawn GP," he added.
Currently, there are many initiatives related to the Formula One racing competition under development, making it a trendy issue. A Formula One movie starring Brad Pitt, John Krasinski, and Jerry Bruckheimer has been acquired by Apple Studios. A television series on former Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone is also in the works.
