Both productions are distributed by STUDIOCANAL. They will launch on STARZPLAY in the U.K. on December 5, with further rollout to select other European territories in 2020.

Instinto was produced for Movistar+ by Bambù Producciones. Sanctuary, based on Marie Hermanson’s The Devil’s Sanctuary, hails from Yellow Bird in co-production with TMG and in cooperation with CANAL+ Poland.
