BBC Worldwide is set to produce the show for next year.
Daft Punk fans are about to get lucky: BBC Worldwide is producing a documentary about the elusive dance-music duo, set to air in 2015.
The film, commissioned by the French pay TV channel Canal Plus, promises to finally shine a light on Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, the electronic DJs who rarely remove their robot masks in public.
The French band has sold 12 million albums worldwide in its two-decade career and won six Grammy Awards in the process.
Daft Punk is responsible for four critically-acclaimed studio albums, including 2014’s Random Access Memories, which won a Grammy for Album of the Year and spawned the megahit single Get Lucky.
But according to producer Patrice Gell, this would be the band’s first ever “independent movie”.
Herv Martin Delpierre is slated to direct the film and also co-write with Marina Rozenman. Other production partners include Jean-Louis Blot, head of BBC Worldwide Productions France. — Reuters
