The first episode was ranked number one in the all important AB demo, and as of the second episode it is now number one in ALL demographics! THE RED ROOM scored a huge share of 23% in AB on Friday 11th September, in the face of stiff competition from popular summer drama series as well as returning favourites.

Eccho Rights have added brand new drama series THE RED ROOM to its distribution catalogue. Produced by OGM Pictures in Turkey, THE RED ROOM debuted on TV8 on Friday 4th September, topping the ratings in the AB commercial demo with 19% share. This represents the second collaboration between Eccho Rights and OGM Pictures who together launched hit series MY HOME MY DESTINY on the international market earlier this year.

“This is an important series that will speak to women - and men - around the world who can relate to the issues faced by those entering the clinic, as well as the personal stories of the staff that we see developing over the course of the series,” says Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights.

Producer Onur Günetanam says "In this series, we will show our audience the effects of childhood experiences, and the way they can shape our future. We are against all physical, sexual and psychological violence. But no country in the world can prevent violence with laws because violence is a bad behaviour, acquired during childhood, that turns into a habit over time.”

The Red Room stars Binnur Kaya, Tülin Özen, Burak Sevinç, Meriç Aral, Halit Özgür Sarı and is directed by Cem Karcı.
