Eccho Rights enters output deal with India’s leading broadcaster Star

The international distributor Eccho Rights is increasing its efforts in the Indian market and is enterting into a three series script representation deal with leading broadcaster Star India. The first three titles in the co-operation include blockbuster series Vera (Ek Veer Ki Ardaas…Veera 282 x 30 min), Tangled Sisters (Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behena - 515 x 30 min) and Unexpected Love (Diya Aur Baati Hum - 1118 x 30 min). Eccho Rights represents the script rights worldwide exclusively outside of India.

"It is with great excitement that we are starting this co-operation with Star India. The globalization of drama is developing at a very interesting speed and one focus of Eccho Rights is to expand our partnership with leading producers to manage their script assets in new markets," says Nixon Yau Lim, head of Asia Pacific at Eccho Rights.

The three titles represent some of the most successful Indian drama series ever.

Eccho Rights has in the last 2 years taken no less than 12 scripts into local versions including three versions of the Turkish series The End into Europe as well as Nurses from Finland into Sweden and The Clinic from Belgium into Spain.
