The Clinic licensed to Antenna TV in Greece

Eccho Rights has licensed scripted reality format THE CLINIC to Antenna TV in Greece.

Created by Tuvalu for VRT in Belgium, THE CLINIC was a record-breaking ratings-winner for the Belgian pubcaster from 2013, and then achieved remarkable success as a remake in Spain. As CENTRO MÉDICO, produced by Zebra Producciones, the medical drama ran for more than 1100 episodes on RTVE from 2015-2019.

“THE CLINIC is a wonderfully simple but successful format - each episode is based on real medical cases, as seen through the eyes of a cast of doctors and nurses. Though the episodes are scripted, the deeply researched source material and original cases make for highly realistic and relatable story-telling,” says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director at Eccho Rights.

THE CLINIC is set to go into production this spring, with an initial order of 60 episodes to air later this year on ANT1 in Greece.

Six new deals for Insider!

Insider (Icerde) from Ay Yapim, the success of the season on Show TV in Turkey has now been picked up by an additional six countries. Channels in Greece, India, Romania, Iran, Iraq and Albania have all inked deals for the ratings smash hit.

"Insider is an amazing production, once again a No 1 series from Ay Yapim. The series is equally attractive to both female and male audiences, a signature for top Turkish dramas," says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director of Eccho Rights.

Insider started its run in Turkey in September, and has been by far the top performing new show for the Fall/Winter season. With a stable 30% share every week in the commercial demo, the series scores nearly 4 times the average share for Show TV in this demo and time slot. The series airs on Monday night among fierce competition from two returning dramas, Orphan Flowers (Kirgin Cicekler) on ATV, and Broken Pieces (Paramparca) on Star TV, as well as the hugely popular Turkish version of Survivor, which returned to TV8 in January. However Insider remains number one in all categories, as well as scoring record-breaking viewing figures on Youtube where the first episode has now been watched over 10 million times.
