North Star scores top ratings in Turkey

North Star roduced by Sürec Film for Show TV is developing incredibly well on Saturday nights in Turkey. The series has almost doubled the ratings from the strong start in September, now being the unquestioned No.1 in all target groups. North Star scores a stable 8% ratings and 20% share.

The romantic drama tells the story of Kuzey who grew up in a rural village in the north of Turkey where life was simple - he would get a job work in the family business, marry a local girl, have children of his own and then the cycle would start over again. But he couldn't escape the lure of the city, and having moved away to study as a young man he decided to stay and build a new life for himself.

VLAD SEASON THREE COMMISSIONED IN ROMANIA

Romanian Pro TV has commissioned a third season of drama series VLAD following the smash hit success of the first two seasons, aired earlier this year.

Hailed by local critics as one of the best Romanian drama series of all time, VLAD scored top ratings both during its first season in February-March 2019 and on its return in September this year. VLAD was launched earlier this year at MIPTV in April where it was selected for the WIT's Fresh TV Conference.

“VLAD is the most ambitious scripted project that we have ever had at Pro TV, and we are extremely happy with the way it was received by the local audience. We are so excited to see where the third season will take us,” says Antonii Mangov, Senior Programming Executive at Pro TV.

Season three will premiere in early 2020.

SILVER SPOON PICKED UP FOR REMAKE IN KOREA

South Korean producer Supermoon Pictures has acquired remake rights for Silver Spoon, the hit Russian crime thriller from Sreda Production Company. This is the first time a Russian drama format has been picked up for adaptation in South Korea.

“I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of Russian drama and concluded that this story and characters will translate well as a Korean remake,” says Mr Insoo Shin, CEO of Supermoon Pictures.

Silver Spoon is the story of a young man, Igor, whose father grows tired of his playboy lifestyle and arranges a job for him in the police force. Though Igor is lazy, spoiled and unmotivated, he shows an instinct for detective work and soon starts to unravel mysteries that have long evaded his colleagues - including the case of his own mother’s death, where his investigations turn up uncomfortable questions for his father.

Perfidia to get UK remake

Perfidia, the award winning Argentine drama, is heading to the UK with DLT at the helm. Margaret Enefer and Donald Taffner Jr. will develop the project, with acclaimed British writer, Alan Whiting (Wire in the Blood, Half Broken Things, The Scarlet Pimpernel), adapting the three-part drama for UK audiences.

DLT’s President Don Taffner Jr. comments, “Perfidia gripped me right from the start with its combination evocative human emotion, thrilling plot and unexpected twists and turns. With Alan’s exceptional talent, this will be an unmissable piece of television.”

This is the second remake deal Eccho Rights has signed with DLT, following last year's deal on Scandi hospital drama Nurses (Yellow Film).

Nicola Söderlund, managing partner at Eccho Rights, says, “We’ve been selling a lot of shows into Latin America, so it’s great to announce a deal that sees traffic in the other direction. It’s a region that is traditionally known for the telenovela, but Latin America also has a growing reputation for high-end dramas. It's wonderful that DLT have recognised the quality of Perfidia and with a top-class team onboard we are sure the remake will be stunning."

Sweden orders Nurses for local version

Sweden’s leading commercial broadcaster TV4 has ordered a local adaptation of hit Finnish drama Nurses from Bob Film. TV4 has commissioned two seasons of ten episodes, which will be called Syrror (Sisters). The first series will be broadcast later this year.

“Finally - TV4’s first medical drama! This is a story about all the big and difficult questions: life, death, love and pain. It’s a world that we sincerely hope will move our audience to both tears and laughter, and that Syrror will be nearly addictive to its viewers”, says Josefine Tengblad, head of drama at TV4 and C More.

Eccho Rights represents the Swedish version of the show and has already presold it to TV2 in Norway and DR in Denmark.

Last year, the distributor sold the rights for a UK remake to DLT and licenced the first two Finnish seasons to ProsiebenSat1, making Nurses the first Nordic series ever to air on a commercial broadcaster in Germany.
