Star TV renews Ömer & Golden Boy

Hit Turkish drama series Ömer and Golden Boy, produced by OGM pictures, will both be returning for a second season in the Autumn, having been renewed by broadcaster Star TV.

Ömer launched in January 2023, and has performed impressively, particularly in the AB commercial demo, where the series regularly ranks at number one in the ratings and more than doubles Star’s average share.

Golden Boy, since launching in September 2022, has maintained its position as the most watched drama series across all channels each week in Turkey, with audiences regularly in excess of 10 million each Friday for the romantic drama. The series has now been licensed to more than 40 territories worldwide, with many more deals currently in the works.

“The success of these two series reflects that romantic dramas remain a top draw for audiences. But both of these series come with a twist on the traditional love story setups, that elevate them into must see primetime viewing,” says Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights.

Hit Turkish drama series Golden Boy has been picked up by several broadcasters across Latin America, with more deals set to be completed during next week’s LA Screenings.

The series has now been acquired for US Hispanic and Paraguay (Telefuturo), Mexico (Imagen), and Panama (Telemetro + RPC). Golden Boy was first picked up in LATAM by Mega in Chile who completed a deal for the series during this year’s Content Americas event in January.
