THE RED ROOM MAKES IMPRESSIVE START

THE RED ROOM, the brand new series from OGM Pictures in Turkey, has made a hugely impressive start to its broadcast on TV8 in Turkey. 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.

The Red Room is set in a therapist’s office in Istanbul, where we see vulnerable women who pass through to get treatment and handle their innermost problems. The series tells us various striking stories, which are built around the fact that our past experiences can have a major impact in our future.

NEW OGM DRAMA SIGN UP

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.

New scripted formats from SBS in S. Korea

Eccho Rights have made an agreement with SBS Contents Hub in South Korea, to represent two of the broadcasting giant’s top scripted formats.

QUEEN OF AMBITION is the story of a woman born into poverty who will let nothing stand in her way as she tries to rise to the top, while a man, a hopeless romantic, will sacrifice anything for her. But when she betrays him, he takes his revenge. The series was a sensation in Korea with its ratings tripling over the course of its broadcast, and the readymade already sold across South East Asia, French-speaking Europe and Romania.

INCARNATION OF MONEY is a legal thriller about a prosecutor and four conspirators who successfully carry out a scheme to kill a real estate mogul and steal his wealth. Years later, they face dire consequences when the mogul's son – now a prosecutor himself - recovers his memory and finds out the truth behind his family's demise. Written by the duo behind K Drama mega hits Vagabond and Giant, INCARNATION OF MONEY won viewers in droves, doubling its rating over time.

In recent years Eccho Rights has compiled a large scripted format catalogue from several South Korean production houses such as CJ ENM, Pan Entertainment, JTBC and SBS, with more than 20 script adaptations in development around the world during the past 24 months.
