Philippines, October 17, 2023 – Today Disney+ reveals the release date for the new Disney+ Original unscripted documentary series “Brawn: The Impossible Formula 1© Story”, a remarkable tale of success against adversity for the £1 Formula 1©racing team.

The series stars Keanu Reeves (“John Wick” and “The Matrix Resurrections”) as host and executive producer, in addition to Formula 1©legends Ross Brawn, Jenson Button, Nick Fry, Rubens Barrichello and Christian Horner. The unscripted documentary series hosted by Keanu Reeves tells the remarkable story of how Ross Brawn, in 2009, competing in the most expensive and technologically advanced racing series on Earth, made the impossible happen.
