Eccho Rights seals package deal with Indian Times Internet

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.”

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.

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.”
