A new crime drama from Sky Atlantic and Canal + is set to commence production.

Sky Atlantic and Canal + brought us a joint production this year in ‘The Tunnel’. After the success of the series, it has today been announced that they will team up again to bring us new series ‘The Last Panthers’.

The Last Panther starts with a daring diamond heist before quickly delving into the dark heart of Europe where a shadowy alliance of gangsters and ‘banksters’ now rules.

Penned by Skins and glue scribe Jack Thorne the cast will include Samantha Morton as Naomi, a British loss adjustor charged with recovering the stolen diamonds whatever the cost. Two-time Academy® Award Nominee, three-time BAFTA Award winner, and Golden Globe® winner John Hurt portrays Tom, her nefarious boss. Also in pursuit is a French-Algerian policeman Khalil, played by double Cesar award winner Tahar Rahim, one of France’s most talented and versatile actors.

Director of Drama for Canal+ Fabrice De La Patellière said, “The Last Panther’ tells the tale of the world-famous Pink Panthers, a network of jewel thieves who still capture the imagination today. The series follows the quest to track some of these characters down, plunging the audience into a Europe gripped by new forms of crime and featuring the interplay between traffickers, European officials, war criminals and City bankers. We’re delighted to be supporting this ambitious international series for Création Originale CANAL+, alongside our partners Sky Atlantic, Haut et Court TV and Warp Films”

Filming of the 6 part series will commence on the 27th October, with it expected to be screened sometime in 2015.
