French pay channel Canal Plus has ordered the one-hour doc from BBC Worldwide Productions France
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 their two-decade career and won six Grammy Awards in the process.
