Cannes — AMC Networks has secured distribution rights to two of Brazilian broadcast network Globo’s most notable series: “Jailers,” and the Brazilian version of “Supermax.”

“Jailers” will be available to stream on the Sundance Now service, while “Supermax” goes to Shudder in North America, U.K., Ireland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Sundance Now offers both original and exclusive series from any genre, and often features foreign-language content; Shudder is the world’s largest dedicated genre streaming platform dedicated to thriller, suspense and horror programing.

It also marked part of an ongoing alliance between Globo and Brazil’s top movie companies, being co-produced by Brazil’s Gullane and Spray Filmes.
