The businessman, now very ill, is probably after the director Tristan Séguéla, who would not have him “request [s]we agree in principle ”.
“As soon as the idea came up, I informed him because I thought it was good to do it”, affirmed Olivier Demangel, the screenwriter of Wonderman , the series in preparation on Netflix telling the multiple lives of Bernard Tapie. The reality would be more nuanced. The businessman, very ill today, spoke about this in an interview with Nice morning, Var-Matin, Provence and France Télévisions.

“Doing it without asking for my agreement in principle is not very good”, begins the former boss of the Olympique de Marseille, who explains the creator of the series is “The son of a friend”. It probably evokes the director Tristan Séguéla, son of the publicist Jacques Séguéla. “There are things we don’t do”, continues the former minister.
A significantly different version, therefore, from that of Olivier Demangel. “He did not try to prevent it (…) He took note and that’s all”, assured the screenwriter, who worked on seasons 2 and 3 of Black Baron, adding that «son implication [aurait été] incompatible with the part of fiction that we want to put in the series ”. If he did not perhaps seek to prevent the project, it is clear that Bernard Tapie does not appreciate that his life is thus adapted, with Laurent Lafitte of the Comédie-Française in his role. “Borrowing my name is heavy, retorts the businessman. That there are documentaries is something else.»
