KAISER KARL: FIRST LOOK AT DANIEL BRUHL AS KARL LAGERFELD IN NEW DISNEY+ SERIES

Disney+ has unveiled the first look of Daniel Brühl as Karl Lagerfeld in Kaiser Karl (w/t), the new French Original series which chronicles the rise of Lagerfeld through the world of 1970s Parisian high fashion, coming soon to Disney+ in 2024.

 



The year is 1972. Lagerfeld, aged thirty-eight, is a little-known fashion designer. After meeting and falling in love with Jacques de Bascher, he finds himself in competition with Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, the head of the most prestigious fashion brand around.



And so, begins the story of Kaiser Karl (w/t), a mix of romance, ambition, and a tireless quest for recognition.

 

Kaiser Karl (w/t) was created and adapted for television by Isaure Pisani-Ferry, Jennifer Have and Raphaëlle Bacqué, author of the eponymous biography, published by Albin Michel in 2019 and translated into six languages.

 



Kaiser Karl (w/t)”is filmed in France. Executive producers are Gaumont and Jour Premier.
