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.

Stiletto Vendetta will return in September!

After a highly successful run, Stiletto Vendetta will return in September for season two. Following the dramatic conclusion of the first season that saw the identity of the series’ murder victim finally revealed, a number of questions remain to be answered this Autumn, when the second season will play out on Star TV. You can see a teaser for the second season here: http://ecchorights.com/series/stiletto-vendetta#trailerTab10

“A second season is a real mark of quality for a Turkish Drama. In an extremely competitive market for top TV, channels only bet on a limited number of the very best products for renewals. But Stiletto Vendetta has passed that test!” says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director at the series’ distributor Eccho Rights.

Star TV ranks as Turkey’s number one channel in the key AB commercial demographic, and over the course of it’s run, Stiletto Vendetta has been the broadcaster’s best performing series in terms of rating in the same demo.

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.
