New Bride on the way to LATAM

New Bride is on its way across LATAM after deals concluded by Eccho Rights with Imagen in Mexico, and the Albavision network covering the whole of Central America. The long running series has been a stand out performer for two years in Turkey, and internationally has scored great ratings particularly in Kazakhstan where New Bride doubled the average share of channel TV7 during its broadcast.

The series - a warm, romantic drama with a light comic side, produced by Sürec Film - has been a huge hit with Turkish viewers, the highest rating scripted show in Saturday prime time throughout it’s first two seasons on Show TV. The third season arrived recently, with New Bride resuming its position at the top of the drama charts.

Times Internet in India have licensed a trio of Turkish Drama series from Eccho Rights to add to the launch line up for an upcoming OTT platform.

The package consists of Cennet and New Bride, both produced by Sürec Film, and is rounded out by Brave and Beautiful, the global sales smash from Ay Yapim.

Nixon Yau Lim, Head of Asia Pacific at Eccho Rights: “There is a great thirst for Turkish content in India. In the past years we have had a number of Turkish script remakes in India but broadcasters are increasingly open to the opportunity to buy an off the shelf product that has already succeeded around the world.”

NEW BRIDE MOVING IN TO NEW TERRITORIES

New Bride, the chart-topping comedy-drama from Turkey has found success in Kazakhstan, while becoming the latest Turkish series to enter the Malaysian market where it will air on NTV 7. Bosnian OBN have also picked up the series for their daily access prime-time slot.

TV 7 in Kazakhstan added New Bride to its line up in October, and has reported a doubling of its average share during its daily prime time broadcast. This has contributed to an overall upward trend in the channel’s performance, which has reported a 36% increase in its total share in the market place this Winter.

“New Bride has been one of the most successful series in Turkey this past year, regularly topping the ratings charts in a fiercely competitive Saturday prime time,” says Handan Özkubat, Head of Eccho Rights’ Istanbul office. “The success in Kazakhstan demonstrates its great appeal as a fun, yet romantic show that appeals to the whole family.”

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.”
