Apple TV+ has announced a series order for “The New Look,” a thriller set against the World War II Nazi occupation of Paris when Coco Chanel’s reign as the world’s most famous fashion designer ends and Christian Dior’s rises.
“The New Look” will be produced by Apple Studios and written, executive produced and directed by Todd A. Kessler (”Bloodline,” “Damages,” “The Sopranos”), with Emmy Award winner Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One,” “Bloodline”) and Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (“The English Patient,” “Chocolat”) attached to star.
About ‘The New Look’
Here’s how ‘The New Look’ is described: Inspired by true events and filmed exclusively in Paris, “The New Look” is a live-action, World War II-era thriller that centers on the pivotal moment in the twentieth century when Paris led the world back to life through its fashion icon, Christian Dior (played by Mendelsohn), whose creations dominated world fashion in the decade following World War II. The interwoven saga will include the surprising stories of Dior’s contemporaries and rivals: the grand dame Coco Chanel (played by Binoche), Balmain, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent and more.
Hailing from Apple Studios, “The New Look” will be the first production from the newly-formed television producing partnership of Lorenzo di Bonaventura (“Transformers,” “Salt”) and Todd A. Kessler; Mark A. Baker (“Bloodline,” “The Night Of,” “Damages”) will also produce.
