Instinto, which will make its international debut Monday, reveals an undercurrent of eroticism, paranoia and intrigue running beneath the respectable surface of society’s powerful elites.

The series stars Mario Casas in the lead role as Marco Mur, a super-rich young tech entrepreneur who secretly explores underground erotic clubs as a release from a haunting traumatic childhood experience. As the show unfolds, Mur is forced to confront a past that is steadily catching up with him.

Monday’s screening follows a cast and crew press conference on Sunday, with leading actors from the show present.

Casas appeared alongside cast members Ingrid Garcia Jonsson, Silvia Alonso and Oscar Casas, and joint executive producers Teresa Fernandez-Valde of Bambu Producciones, and Domingo Corral of Moviestar+.

Garcia Jonsson said: “It’s about the interconnected relationships between people and people’s darker sides. It comes across as being about sexuality but I think it’s more about human behaviour. It’s a different type of show from what you normally see.”

The six-part series is set for release in Spain next month. STUDIOCANAL is distributing the show in all markets apart from Latin America, where Amazon Prime Video has the rights, and the US where it has been acquired by Lionsgate and Hemisphere MediaGroup’s Spanish-language streamer Pantaya.
