Paramount+ Acquires “MILLI VANILLI” Feature-Length Documentary That “Leaves No Stone Unturned”

Paramount+ has confirmed having nabbed the rights to the new feature-length documentary “Milli Vanilli, ahead of its world premiere at the Tribeca Festival on Saturday 10th June. The documentary will debut exclusively on Paramount+ this fall in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and MRC, “Milli Vanilli” recounts Robert Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan’s childhood friendship in Germany. Rob, who came from a broken home, and Fabrice, who had escaped an abusive home, shared similar upbringings and a common goal for the future: to become famous superstars. In a few short years they achieved what they had always dreamed of. 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. But their ascent to stardom also came with a crushing price that culminated in their now infamous demise.

Commenting on the documentary, director Luke Korem said, “For over 30 years, the story of Milli Vanilli – in particular Rob and Fab – has been reduced to sensational headlines, … With this documentary, we pull back the curtain on pop music. Featuring interviews with the real singers, record executives, the producer mastermind behind the deception and exclusive interviews with Rob and Fab, we 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.”

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

Milli Vanille is directed and produced by Luke Korem, and produced by Bradley Jackson, MRC, Keep On Running Pictures and MTV Entertainment Studios. Hanif Abdurraqib and Kim Marlowe serve as executive producers.
