Eccho Rights repping Trotsky worldwide

Trotsky, the new 8-part series from Russian Sreda Production Company will be launched this Mipcom, with Eccho Rights distributing the title worldwide.

A big budget historical epic produced for Channel One in Russia to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, Trotsky will have its world premiere at Mipcom with a gala screening in the Grand Auditorium at Palais des Festivals in Cannes on Tuesday 17th October.

The series charts the rise of Trotsky and his integral role in the October Revolution of 1917, through to his exile in Mexico. The story is told from his own perspective in the form of a confessional testament that he hopes will be his last chance to exact revenge on Stalin who so cruelly betrayed him.

“Trotsky is an epic production that we are very proud to be representing,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner of Eccho Rights. “Trotsky’s story is fascinating and with so much attention on the centenary of the Russian Revolution this year, we have already seen huge interest in the series.”

Phi to be the first Turkish Drama in Korea!

Phi will become the first Turkish drama series to air on Korean television, on GTV this November.

The channel, which focuses on a female audience with a line up of lifestyle, cookery and fashion programming, will use Phi to introduce the Turkish Drama phenomenon to the Korean market.

Mint Media Group, who facilitated the deal alongside international distributor Eccho Rights, will dub the series in to Korean using A-list voice actors. CEO of Mint Media, Lee Hak Rae: “The Korean audience is not familiar with Turkish series yet, so the dubbed version will be a perfect opportunity to introduce this new genre in to Korea."

GTV will also bring a specially created 4K version of the series to their ultra hi-def service UHD Dream TV.

Cennet joins the Eccho Rights line-up

Eccho Rights is bringing a brand new series from top Turkish producers Sürec Film to Cannes; Cennet.

Airing this season on ATV, Cennet (Cennet'in Gözyaşları) stars Alma Ada and Berk Atan in the leading roles. Cennet (Ada) is an ambitious young woman from a tough background. When the woman she longs to work for turns out to be the mother that abandoned her as a baby, her motivation switches, having always sought the maternal love she has missed since birth. Yet her appearance rings alarm bells for her mother who suspects foul play, and tries everything to get rid of Cennet from her life once more.

“This is a really exciting project for us,” says Handan Özkubat, Head of Eccho Rights’ Istanbul Office. “It is a great story and Sürec Film has a proud history of high quality productions that have been received well by both Turkish and international audiences.”
