Brawn; The One Pound Formula 1 Team
Updated: Aug 30, 2022
A brand-new unscripted four-part documentary series, produced by North One, with Keanu Reeves (“John Wick,” “The Matrix Resurrections”) tells the remarkable story of the British Formula 1 team that cost just £1.
The documentary will include contributions from British F1 driver Jenson Button and Ross Brawn, who led the team to victory.
2009, in the most expensive and technologically advanced racing series on earth, the impossible happened. An understaffed, underfinanced and independent team won the World Championship. A Formula 1 fairytale, the series tells the extraordinary story of how Brawn GP pulled off a sporting miracle that shook the F1 world.
It is told by the people who were there - on the track, in the garage and the boardroom - giving their own thrilling versions of a miraculous year. The new series has exclusive access to the F1 archives – much of it previously unseen - from a year global sport will never forget.
Keanu Reeves, who is conducting the interviews, as well as narrating the series, said: “I am honoured to be a part of telling the incredible story of Brawn GP and their remarkable F1 Championship Season in 2009 with those who lived it in this four-part documentary series. It has been great to have the support of Disney+ and producing partnership with North One to bring this story to life.”
The series is developed and produced by showrunner Simon Hammerson and directed by 2022 Broadcast best sports documentary winner Daryl Goodrich. Executive Producers are Keanu Reeves, Sean Doyle and Neil Duncanson.
“Brawn; The One Pound Formula 1 Team" will be produced by All3Media indie North One.
