Over the past month, we’ve seen many titles removed from Disney’s streaming services without any warning, and now a number of Star Originals from Latin America have also been removed from Disney+ globally and on Star+ in Latin America.
These removed Star Originals include “Insânia”, “Não foi Minha Culpa: México” (It Was Not My Fault), “Não foi Minha Culpa: Colômbia” and “O Galã: A TV Mudou, ele não” (aka The Heartthrob: TV Changed, He Didn’t).
Unlike other streaming services, Disney doesn’t advertise in advance that titles are going to be removed, so subscribers have been aware of the removals.
These removals continue the trend that Disney is removing Star Originals that have likely underperformed, and Disney is trying to save money by removing titles, possibly to stop residual payments to cast/crew/creators. We’ve seen Star Original shows like “Queens”, “Rebel”, “The Big Leap”, and “Promised Land” also removed from Disney’s streaming services around the world.
What’s interesting is that “O Galã: A TV Mudou, ele não” (aka The Heartthrob: TV Changed, He Didn’t) only just finished being released on Disney+ as a weekly release, recently.
Here are some details on each of these shows:
No fue mi culpa: México
The complex story behind gender violence, from the perspective of real tales by different age, context and social class women.
After a family tragedy, Paula, a forensic investigator, is wrongly admitted to a psychiatric hospital. There, her mind wanders through shadowy and dubious pathways, until reaching the brink of insanity, as she investigates the true motive behind her hospitalization that unravels a terrifying conspiracy.
The Heartthrob: TV Changed, He Didn’t
Former soap opera heartthrob Fabián Delmar lives his life in near oblivion after his heyday in the 90s as the lead role in the series “Serás Mía.” When Delmar — spurred on by a midlife crisis and the constant degradations of his twilight — sets out to make things right with the regrettable parts of his past, he struggles to find his footing in the modern world.
