*Paramount+ has announced the acquisition of the new feature-length documentary “MILLI VANILLI,” which will tell the story of artists Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan, who became fast friends during their youth in Germany. 

The duo would go on to become famous superstars. Per the network’s synopsis: “Their first album went platinum six times in 1989, and their hit “Girl You Know It’s True” sold over 30 million singles worldwide. Rob and Fab, better known as Milli Vanilli, became the world’s most popular pop duo in 1990 and won the GRAMMY for Best New Artist. However, their ascension to success came with a devastating price that ultimately led to their infamous undoing.”

“For over 30 years, the story of Milli Vanilli – in particular Rob and Fab – has been reduced to sensational headlines,” said director Luke Korem in a statement. “With this documentary, we pull back the curtain on pop music.”

Korem said the project features interviews with the singers, record executives, and “the producer mastermind behind the deception” of Rob and Fab, to “unveil the truth of this complex, exciting and dramatic story. I’m thrilled that Paramount+ shares our vision and will bring this film to audiences around the world,” he explained.

“Finally – the true story of Milli Vanilli has been told!” said Fabrice Morvan.

“I’m thankful Luke Korem and his team went to the lengths that they did. The journey I returned to during the filming of this documentary didn’t leave any stone unturned. At last I can close this chapter in peace … Get ready to take a walk in our steel-toe boots,” he added.

Directed and produced by Luke Korem, the documentary will make its World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, June 10, before debuting on Paramount+ this fall.
