Designer docu to hit Sundance Channel


Sundance Channel has acquired U.S. broadcast rights to Loic Prigent's documentary "Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton," which captures fashion designer Jacobs at work.

The docu also features interviews with some of Jacobs' friends and admirers, including Sofia Coppola, author Francine Prose, Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and art dealer Larry Gagosian.

The docu is set to make its U.S. television premiere on Sundance in February. The deal was negotiated by Sundance Channel's Christian Vesper and Arte France's Emmanuelle Erbsmann on behalf of the filmmakers.
