Eccho Rights seals package deal with Indian Times Internet

Times Internet in India have licensed a trio of Turkish Drama series from distributor Eccho Rights. The three series will be part of the launch line up for an as yet unnamed OTT platform set to go online later this year.

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

Cennet recently completed its first season on Turkish ATV and has already sold to a number of territories across Europe and Asia, including Romania, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria and Georgia.

New Bride, a smash hit for Show TV for two consecutive seasons, has recently been confirmed to be returning for a third later this year. In the international market the series is already well traveled with deals in Eastern Europe, across MENA and in South East Asia.

The final series in the deal, Brave and Beautiful, has already sold to in excess of 70 countries worldwide, with its star studded cast proving hugely popular with international buyers.

“There is a great thirst for Turkish content in India,” says Nixon Yau Lim, Head of Asia Pacific at Eccho Rights. “In the past we have had several 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.”

Cennet is the story of a young woman longing for motherly love, having been abandoned as a baby. But when she is reunited with her biological mother she is not greeted with warmth but treated with suspicion that she is only looking for money - or revenge.

New Bride is a light hearted romance that follows the fortunes of Bela, a young woman who finds the man of her dreams but is faced with a severe culture clash when she meets his unusual family. The series has topped ratings charts in Turkey for two straight seasons and will return later this year to Show TV.

Brave And Beautiful is an epic romantic drama set against a deep, historical family feud, starring Turkey’s two biggest international acting stars Kivanc Tatlitug and Tuba Büyüküstün. Broadcast on Star TV in Turkey in 2016-17, the series has won several Turkish television awards and received the Silver Bird Prize for Serial Drama at the 2017 Seoul International Drama Awards.

Times Internet is the digital arm of the Times Group, India’s largest media conglomerate, and counts several news, sports and lifestyle OTT platforms among its wide offering.
