The Last Panthers (previously titled Barbarians: The Last of the Pink Panthers) is a 6 x 60’ drama series is based on the true story of an international crime gang that emerged from the former Yugoslavia after the Balkan war. The gang, which was known as the Pink Panthers and included former Serbian soldiers, robbed luxury boutiques across Europe and was involved in weapons and drug trafficking. The programme is a co-production between the UK’s Warp Films (This is England) and France’s Haut et Court (The Returned) for Sky Atlantic and Canal+.
Peter Carlton, Producer of The Last Panthers and Co-CEO of Warp, said:
"Creative Europe funding helped to enhance the production value and ensure we could shoot in genuine locations Europe-wide rather than be dictated solely by economic criteria. In a highly competitive international marketplace, quality and distinctiveness are essential for the European audiovisual production sector to remain competitive and the Creative Europe programme and personnel understand and support that to the full."
