(Deadline.com)
BEHIND THE ATTRACTION (Disney+, New!) - The streaming service has ordered 10 one-hour episodes of a new documentary series which "takes viewers into the history of how popular Disney attractions and destinations came to be, how they have changed over time, and how fans continue to obsess over them." Seven Bucks Productions and The Nacelle Company are behind the project with Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, Hiram Garcia, Brian Gewirtz, Kevin Hill, Brian Volk-Weiss, Robin Henry and Cisco Henson serving as executive producers. Volk-Weiss will also direct the series. (Variety.com)

Nitro Circus Media Productions is behind the project with Trip Taylor and Andy Edwards executive producing. (Deadline.com)
REPEAT (CBS, New!) - David Hayter has sold a domestic take on Kurumi Inui's book-turned-Japanese TV series to the Eye, in which "the opportunity to travel back 10 months to relive their pasts seems like an incredible gift to a group of strangers, giving them the chance to right wrongs, undo mistakes, and set their lives on a better path, but their new choices have unforeseen results as they unravel a larger conspiracy with deadly consequences." The project is set up at ABC Studios with Hayter, Masi Oka and WindPower Entertainment's Sabrina Wind executive producing. (Deadline.com)
VAULT, THE (NBC, New!) - Jesse Lasky has booked a potential drama at the Peacock in which "when a cataclysmic event seemingly wipes out the planet, the survival of humanity rests upon Annie, a geobiologist who has been setting up a state-of-the-art facility in the Arctic known as the Vault. It houses a dozen experts in their respective fields all with specific skill sets that would be essential in rebuilding civilization." Keshet Studios and Universal Television are behind the hour with Avi Nir, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan and Alon Shtruzman also slated to executive produce. (Deadline.com)
