Six new deals for Insider!

Insider (Icerde) from Ay Yapim, the success of the season on Show TV in Turkey has now been picked up by an additional six countries. Channels in Greece, India, Romania, Iran, Iraq and Albania have all inked deals for the ratings smash hit.

"Insider is an amazing production, once again a No 1 series from Ay Yapim. The series is equally attractive to both female and male audiences, a signature for top Turkish dramas," says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director of Eccho Rights.

Insider started its run in Turkey in September, and has been by far the top performing new show for the Fall/Winter season. With a stable 30% share every week in the commercial demo, the series scores nearly 4 times the average share for Show TV in this demo and time slot. The series airs on Monday night among fierce competition from two returning dramas, Orphan Flowers (Kirgin Cicekler) on ATV, and Broken Pieces (Paramparca) on Star TV, as well as the hugely popular Turkish version of Survivor, which returned to TV8 in January. However Insider remains number one in all categories, as well as scoring record-breaking viewing figures on Youtube where the first episode has now been watched over 10 million times.
