Scheduled to air on Netflix starting September 13, 2023, the series “Tapie” retraces the life of Bernard Tapie. Scheming, charisma, wealth, and extravagance – dive into the world of a man who left his mark on his era.
This is probably one of the most highly anticipated series of the year-end. The seven-episode miniseries “Tapie,” with each episode lasting 50 minutes, stars Laurent Lafitte in the role of Bernard Tapie.
Created by Olivier Demangel and Tristan Séguéla, this biopic takes us back to a time when the young businessman began his career as a door-to-door TV salesman before climbing the ranks and taking on responsibilities both in politics and management.
Laurent Lafitte, a member of the Comédie Française, delivers a performance that promises to be remarkable, both in terms of physical resemblance and surprising acting. As a writer and director himself, he establishes himself as one of the most charismatic and versatile French actors today, excelling in both comedy and drama.
Alongside him, we’ll see actors such as Fabrice Luchini, Joséphine Japy, Mark Lewis, Antoine Reinartz, and Camille Chamoux.
The series will premiere on Netflix on September 13, 2023, offering the opportunity to revisit the extraordinary journey of the man who was nicknamed “Nanard” by Les Guignols.
The series had a provisional title of “Wonderman,” a reference to the iconic 1986 advertisement for a battery brand in which you can hear, ‘What makes Tapie run… I run on Wonder.’
The destiny of Bernard Tapie is a fascinating saga, blending success, controversies, and resilience. As a businessman, politician, media personality, and sports figure, he left an indelible mark on France over the decades, reflecting the opportunities and challenges of his time.
