By Chris Cooke | Published on Friday 27 June 2014
French TV firm, and Universal Music sister company, Canal+ has commissioned the French programme making division of the BBC’s commercial wing BBC Worldwide to make a one-hour film about the often elusive pop-producing powerhouse Daft Punk.
The documentary, due to air next year, will chart the rise and output of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo from their coming together as Daft Punk in 1993 to the mega-success that was the album ‘Random Access Memories’ last year.
Confirming the commission, Jean Louis Blot, Director of BBC Worldwide Productions France, told reporters: “We are proud to announce our first commission with Canal+ Group on such an original and creative film. BBC Worldwide France stands as a major French producer of documentaries with stunning production values and universal appeal”.
