Fox locates Last Panthers in Balkans, Bulgaria

Scripted-logo-460_2pantherMilan_765-F10.jpgFox Networks Group Bulgaria and Balkans has acquired six-part crime thriller The Last Panthers.

The 21st Century Fox-owned broadcaster will air the drama on Fox Crime channels in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia on March 21, and in Bulgaria on April 19.

France’s Studiocanal and the UK’s Sky Vision jointly distribute Panthers, which was originally for Canal+, Sky Atlantic and SundanceTV in the US. Coproducers are Haut et Court (The Returned) and Warp Films (Southcliffe), and Samantha Morton is among the stars.

Panthers, shot across Europe in territories including Serbia and Montenegro, follows the aftermath of a daring diamond heist gone wrong.

Previous buyers include SBS in Australia and HBO Nordic in the Scandinavian region.

“Producers Haut et Court TV and Warp Films have created a series of rare quality with true global resonance which has landed in a great home at Fox Networks Group Bulgaria and Balkans,” said Sky Vision’s head of sales, Leona Connell.
