Sacha & Evgueni Galperine (The Undoing, Scenes from a Marriage, RadioactiveLoveless, The Family, Wizard of Lies, Happening) are scoring the upcoming French Disney+ original series Kaiser Karl. The show is created by Isaure Pisani-Ferry, Jennifer Have & Raphaëlle Bacqué (author of the eponymous biography) and stars Daniel Brühl as Karl Lagerfeld, as well as Théodore Pellerin, Arnaud Valois, Alex Lutz and Agnès Jaoui. The biographical drama directed by Jérôme Salle (Largo Winch, Zulu) and Audrey Estrougo (An Ordinary Story, By Your Side) chronicles the rise of the fashion designer through who – after meeting and falling in love with Jacques de Bascher in the 1970s – finds himself in competition with Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, the head of the most prestigious fashion brand around. The project is produced by Gaumont and Jour Premier. Kaiser Karl is expected to premiere in late 2024.

The composers’ other recent projects Alix Delaporte’s Vivants, which premiered at last year’s Venice Film Festival and will open in French theaters next month.
