The big-budget Sky Atlantic and Canal+ copro will be screened on the Monday of the market in the Grand Auditorium. Cast members will then take part in a Q&A with Samantha Morton (below right) expected to be in attendance.
It is the latest example of a high-end drama coproduction between content firms in France and the UK. The six-part series will debut on Canal+ later in October and on Sky Atlantic at a later date.
International sales of The Last Panthers are being handled by Studiocanal and Sky’s Sky Vision.
“The Last Panthers is emblematic of this new breed of event series that are internationally coproduced, set in different countries, feature A-list talent, and which have proved to be a great success in the international marketplace,” said Laurine Garaude, director of Reed Midem’s Television Division.
