Kurt Seyit heading to Eastern Europe
Following the NATPE market in Prague, Eccho Rights announces the latest deals on the epic Turkish drama from Ay Yapim – Kurt Seyit & Sura.
The Stockholm based distributor has secured three new licences in Eastern Europe - Kanal D in Romania, Inter TV in Ukraine and RTL Klub in Hungary. These latest deals come on the back of a successful launch of the show in the Middle East with record audiences.
Fredrik af Malmborg, managing director at Eccho Rights, said, "Kurt Seyit is a stunning piece of TV and is proving a ratings hit across the Middle East. We expect to see this success replicated across Eastern Europe and beyond."
Kurt Seyit & Sura is a true love story based on a bestselling novel. Starring Kivanc Tatlitug and Farah Zeynep Abdullah, the series tells the story of the dashing, womanizing Lieutenant Kurt Seyit - the first son of a rich Crimean landowner of Turkish origin - who falls in love with Sura - the beautiful daughter of a noble Russian family. But Seyit's father has always insisted that his heir should marry a Turkish woman so their love faces many obstacles.
