The Bureau is a political spy thriller television series, created by Éric Rochant and produced by TOP - The Oligarchs Productions and Canal+. The series follows agents of the DGSE (General Directorate of External Security), France's principal external security service. Panchenko appears in the latest season as Alexis Bakatine, a young, promising counterintelligence agent.

The New York Times has named The Bureau as a NYT Recommendation, calling it “a stylish foreign espionage thriller” and “easy to binge.” The Times also hails the thrilling series as “one of the smartest and most authentic-feeling procedural espionage series anywhere in the world.”

The first season received favorable reviews worldwide and won several awards. The sophomore season of the series also received much discussion as one of the best television seasons ever produced in France. The third and fourth seasons, respectively, aired in France beginning May 22, 2017 and October 22, 2018, and were also met with critical acclaim.

Originally, the first episode of the fifth season was slated to close Cannes Series 2020 being out of the competition itself. However, due to the public health crisis, the Festival de Cannes was pushed to October. The season went on to air in France on April 6, 2020, and is now available on Amazon Prime and Sundance Now.
