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.

SISTERHOOD PREMIER ON STAR TV

Sisterhood, produced by Surec Film had its premier on Friday on Star TV. 

Sürec Film is one of Turkey’s leading production companies behind a string of hit titles including Cennet, Cherry Season, New Bride, Bitter Sweet Life, Foster Mother, Kacak and more.

SISTERHOOD tells the story of Ipek, who is finalising her wedding plans when she is stunned to receive an anonymous letter telling her she has two sisters she never knew. The three agree to meet at the wedding. But as Ipek’s new husband Tekin angrily loses control after the party, they strike a fatal blow to his head in a desperate scuffle. Suddenly, in the course of a couple of days, these three go from not knowing of each other’s existence, to being at the centre of a murder cover-up together. And their newly-formed sisterly bond is immediately put to the test.

“We are convinced that SISTERHOOD will be one of the biggest hits this season and are proud and excited to represent yet another one of Sürec’s remarkable projects,” says Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights.
