The Promise is Eccho Rights' latest hit series

We have added daily drama series The Promise to our catalogue, the latest hit production from Karamel Yapim in Turkey.

Debuting on Kanal 7 last week, the series scored very strong ratings, reaching a market share more than double that of the broadcaster's average audience. The Promise follows the tortuous romance between a young couple, brought together from different worlds by a vow that each makes: the beautiful Reyhan promises to take care of the family of an old friend who is diagnosed with a terminal illness, while the man she is pledged to marry makes his own promise - to teach his dying father a lesson by sabotaging the marriage.

“This is a heartbreaking, emotional story that will captivate viewers around the world, just as Karamel Yapim’s last hit, Prisoner of Love," says Handan Özkubat, Eccho Rights’ Director of Turkish Drama. Eccho Rights have already completed sales for Prisoner of Love in Poland, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Macedonia and Georgia.

RCN picks up Insider as first ever Turkish Drama

RCN in Colombia have acquired their first ever Turkish Drama, picking up the smash hit series Insider. Produced by Ay Yapim, Insider was one of the most significant Turkish Dramas releases of recent years, scoring record ratings for Show TV, and inspiring an obsessive fanbase.

In Latin America the series broke viewer records for Mega in Chile, while Eccho Rights have also placed the show with broadcasters in Mexico, Argentina and Uruguay.

“Turkish Drama’s success in Latin America is well documented but there is still room for the genre to grow in the region. Insider is a perfect choice for RCN to make a bold first step in to programming Turkish shows, with its amazing production values, and a script that encompasses high action with beautiful emotion and family stories,” says Barbora Suster, Head of Latin America at Eccho Rights.

Eccho Rights presents The Pretender

Eccho Rights have entered into an agreement with Russian producers Amedia Production to distribute brand new crime drama The Pretender. The series, an exciting and stylish 12-parter set after the Revolution of 1917, will air on Channel One in Russia later this year. Eccho Rights will present a first look at The Pretender for international buyers at MIPCOM this month.

The Pretender sees a provincial swindler find a golden opportunity for a big city heist, as a case of mistaken identity leads him in to the heart of the Leningrad police force. But once inside, his talent for police work is irresistible, as he uses his criminal instincts to solve cases that were previously out of reach for the old guard. As he gets particularly close to one new colleague, he decides he must follow this new path turning his back for good on his criminal past. But when gangsters to whom he still owes money show up, his true identity, new career and budding romance are all at risk.

“The Pretender is a fantastic production that we were eager to represent as soon as we saw it,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights. “The pacing, the look and the relationships will appeal to fans of crime series, period drama and even romance, where there is a lot of heart in this story about a man trying to do the right thing.”
