Sky Atlantic’s newest original series The Last Panthers will premiere on Thursday November 12th at 9pm, it has been announced.
A co-production with French broadcaster Canal+, The Last Panthers opens with a daring diamond heist before quickly delving into the dark heart of Europe where a shadowy alliance of gangsters and ‘banksters’ now rules. The cast is being led by Tahar Rahim as Khalil, a French-Algerian policeman in pursuit of the thieves; Samantha Morton as Naomi, a British loss adjustor charged with recovering the stolen diamonds whatever the cost; and John Hurt as Tom, her nefarious boss.
Based on an idea by Jerome Pierrat and penned by Jack Thorne, The Last Panthers is a tri-lingual series, which has been filmed in English, French and Serbian, and is being co-produced by Haut et Court TV (The Returned) & Warp Films in association with Canal+. The executive producers are Peter Carlton, Caroline Benjo and Jimmy Desmarais; while Bates Motel helmer Johan Renck directed. Tandem and Sky Vision are handling global distribution.
