David Bowie has penned the theme song for the upcoming diamond heist TV drama series “The Last Panthers” for Sky Atlantic and CanalPlus.
Also entitled “The Last Panthers,” the song is the legendary rocker’s first song for a film or TV show in more than two decades.
The original six-part series is based on the real-life crimes of the Pink Panthers gang, a Balkan group known for its bold robberies and inventive ways of hiding its hauls.
Samantha Morton, Tahar Rahim and John Hurt star in the series which was shot in Marseille, Belgrade, Montenegro and London. Bowie wrote the song following a meeting with series director Johan Renck who said he was looking for an iconic musician to do the theme, instead he was “presented with a god”.
