American success for Turkish dramas, Kurt Seyit and Kacak - See

Eccho Rights, the rights management company based in Stockholm, Istanbul and Hong Kong, continues its success in drama licensing with two deals in the US.


MundoFox Broadcasting has licenced the Ay Yapim series Kurt Seyit and Sura for the US market. The channel plans on broadcasting the 46 episode series on a weekly basis starting this month. The series will air under the title ‘Sura y Seyit, Amor de Guerra.’


Azteca America has signed up for Kacak from Surec Film that currently airs on ATV in Turkey. Azteca America has licenced the US Hispanic rights and will start to air the 126 episode series later this spring.


Eccho Rights secured the two deals in co-operation with Somos.


Kurt Seyit & Sura is one of the most prestigious Turkish TV drama ever produced, from the Turkish drama powerhouse, Ay Yapim. Starring Kivanc Tatlitug and Farah Zeynep Abdullah in the title roles, this epic series is a true love story adapted from a bestselling novel that plays our in the early 20th century in Russia and Turkey.


Kacak is a top rating drama about a man who cannot escape his past. He lives a calm family life as a café owner until his life is changed again when he finds himself in the middle of a robbery in the local jewellery store. He disarms the criminals, becomes the town hero and his story tops the national news. The unwanted publicity reveals his hidden identity and he is dragged back into a war with his old mafia enemy.


Eccho Rights is enjoying a great start in America in 2015. Last month US network ABC picked up a pilot of Runner, a re-make of The End from Ay Yapim, another Eccho Rights represented format. - See more at: http://sparksnetwork.com/Ecchorights/News.aspx?type=ecchorightsnews&min=0#.Vij8nKKiCHQ
