Daft Punk are to be the subject of a new TV documentary next year.

French subscription channel Canal Plus have commissioned BBC Worldwide Production France to make a one-hour film about the famously elusive electro duo. It will air in 2015.

The film was announced at non-fiction conference Sunny Side, and as Variety reports, marks BBC Worldwide‘s first commission from Canal Plus. It will chart the rise and artistry of the award-winning duo, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, from Daft Punk’s formation in 1993 through to the huge success of 2013’s Random Access Memories.

During their 20-year career, Daft Punk have sold more than 12 million albums around the world and have won six Grammy Awards. They announced their comeback by surprising the crowd at 2013’s Coachella Festival with a teaser trailer, before slowly revealing their fourth album to journalists around the world under strict security guidelines. “Get Lucky” from that album became one of the year’s biggest singles, selling 9.3 million copies worldwide.

Jean-Louis Blot, head of BBC Worldwide Productions France, is producing the documentary with Patrice Gellé and said: “We are proud to announce our first commission with Canal Plus 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.”
