DirecTV Lat Am welcomes Last Panthers

Scripted-logo-460_2The-Last-Panthers_MortonPay TV provider DirecTV Latin America has acquired six-part crime series The Last Panthers.

The Sky Atlantic and Canal+ drama will launch regionally on the platform today.

The show, from the UK’s Warp Films and France’s Haut et Court Television, follows a gang of daring diamond thieves who are drawn into a collision with a British insurance agent and a French-Algerian cop.

Distributor StudioCanal has shopped it into 122 territories, including to SBS in Australia, HBO Nordics and Fox Networks Group in Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia.

“We’re thrilled to bring The Last Panthers exclusively to our subscribers,” said Willard Tressel, general manager of OnDirecTV, which is part of DirecTV. “The producers have brought together an amazing team of talented people to create this gripping series that feels closer to cinema than to television.”
