Left Bank Pictures’ extended second series of SAS drama Strike Back forges the first ever co-production between BSkyB and American cable network HBO/Cinemax. Shooting 10 × 60′ episodes in South Africa and Hungary between Feb – July 2011, the action packed adventure series sees a fresh set of characters / storylines in a globe-spanning setting with international appeal.

Andy Harries: “Strike Back was conceived as a high octane action adventure with the scale and impact of a US series, and to have HBO/Cinemax on board will turn this ambition into reality… Sky are leading the market with confidence. This is the kind of commission that gives Left Bank Pictures the opportunity to push boundaries and take the series into the international marketplace. Elaine Pyke (Sky1 head of drama) and Stuart Murphy recognise that British drama is a huge asset and their belief and committment in UK production companies is to be applauded.”
