The sci-fi drama is produced by Goalpost Pictures and VFX giant Weta Workshop and its subsidiary Pukeko Pictures.

It tells the story of humans in a near-future dystopia who become increasingly hostile to near-human creatures that have emerged.

Red Arrow said it will launch 400 hours of new content in Cannes. “The scripted offering is a bold mix of English and non-English language series – from ‘genre’ to procedural,” said Henrik Pabst, company managing director.
