Raël docuseries to launch on Netflix
Banijay France today announces its factual label, KM, is to produce new docuseries Raël: The Alien Prophet for Netflix. The four-parter, which launches on Wednesday 7 February, traces how a UFO-inspired religion spiralled into a controversial cult. Through investigative work and recovered documents, the show delves into the intriguing world of Raëlism, a religious movement founded in France by Claude Vorilhon, known as Raël, and its impact over the last 50 years.

Catherine Alvaresse, CEO at KM comments: “Drawing on archives and unpublished testimonies, this gripping series takes us to the heart of this fascinating religion. Featuring interviews with his followers, critics, and Raël himself, it will explore the sources of belief and contradictions behind this movement and ways it has evolved over the last five decades. This real-life story gives a sneak peek into an untapped world and promises to be a thrilling watch.”

Factual producer KM specialises in high-quality content including current affairs programming and documentaries, with credits including long-running title, 28 minutes, a daily success on Arte averaging a peak audience of 1 million viewers, and the recently-announced documentary Révélation on Karl Lagerfeld which premiered this month on Canal+.
