AMC Networks‘ streaming service Sundance Now acquired the U.S. and Canadian rights to Sanctuary from Studiocanal.
Based on the novel The Devil’s Sanctuary by Marie Hermanson, the psychological thriller is produced by Fabula Pictures and Yellow Bird. The series revolves around estranged twin sisters Siri and Helena. Helena visits Siri at a residential sanatorium in the Alps. When Siri runs away, Helena discovers that her sister was staying at a facility studying psychopaths. Sanctuary will have its U.S. and Canadian premiere on Sundance Now on April 23, 2020.
