STRIKE Back Takes A Leap Into Asia

News Image
Malaysia is hosting one of the most successful drama series to come out of the USA and UK, STRIKE BACK. STRIKE BACK is a co-production between Sky and Cinemax and will be produced by Left Bank Pictures and has been brought to Malaysia through Knockout Production Services because of Malaysia's authentic locations and the production rebate scheme.

Knockout Production Services was selected to work closely with Left Bank Pictures because of their ability to combine their expertise of gaining stable and constant government support with their local knowledge, transparency of information, sourcing authentic and unique filming locations alongside running an organised, smooth and efficient filming schedule.
This will be series 7 of STRIKE BACK and filming this high-end production in Malaysia will benefit the entire country. Knockout Production Services work hard to use film to develop and inspire emerging markets, and projects such as STRIKE BACK contribute sizeably to a country's GDP.

CEO of Knockout Production Services, Kenton Oxley, said: "We are proud to be working with Left Bank Pictures and grateful that they have put their faith in us to deliver this major production. With helicopters flying over-head and tanks taking to the streets of Malaysia this is going to be an exhilarating show. SB7 is an outstanding project which pulls out all the stops, ensuring viewers get the highest production values.
"Our brief was to find a variety of locations and secure stable government backing. Having a vast portfolio and contacts in filming locations globally enabled us to find the perfect home for STRIKE BACK Series 7."

Due to STRIKE BACK's investment in Malaysia and their use of world-famous Pinewood Malaysia’s facilities for part of the filming, the project qualified as the FIRST MAJOR INTERNATIONAL PROJECT to use the new Fimi PLUS 30% rebate scheme (Filming in Malaysia Incentive) which has helped to make filming in Malaysia more desirable for production companies world-wide.

The central cast and characters for STRIKE BACK series 7 are Warren Brown as Thomas 'Mac' McAllister, Daniel MacPherson as Samuel Wyatt and Alin Sumarwata as Gracie Novin. New characters this season are Colonel Alexander Coltrane, played by Jamie Bamber, and disavowed Russian agent Katrina Zarkova played by Yasemin Allen.
