The Pack – first Polish HBO original series created by Bahama Films’ founders.
On Sunday, the 12th of October 2014, viewers can watch the first episode of the new HBO production. The series was created in 2008 by Wiktor Piątkowski, Kamil Chomiuk and Krzysztof Maćkowski. At that time the first version of the script and series bible were created. Over the years the treatment, outline and screenplay evolved. Screenwriters conducted background studies, that involved meetings with Border Guards and participating in actions in Bieszczady Mountains.

First season was directed by Michał Gazda and Kasia Adamik. The cast included Leszek Lichota, Bartłomiej Topa, Magdalena Popławska, Aleksandra Popławska, Andrzej Zieliński and Marian Dziędziel.
