ECCHO RIGHTS COMPLETES SOUTH KOREAN DEALS

Eccho Rights has arranged deals for four top international drama series with platforms in South Korea.

VLAD from Romania’s PRO TV and THE END from producers Ay Yapim in Turkey, have both been picked up by a new channel specialising in Eurasian content, while BITTER SWEET LIFE, a Turkish hit from Sürec Film is making its way to a family-focused channel courtesy of Mint Media Group. Completing this latest round of sales in South Korea is TROTSKY, the historical drama from Sreda Production Company in Russia which has been acquired by Catch On.

“South Korea is known globally as a great source country for drama series, but there is also a thirst for broadcasters to import new international content to the country. We have seen that interest in Turkish Drama continues to grow and there is now an increasing demand for even greater diversity – something we are delighted to be able to offer in the form of high quality series from previously untapped countries such as VLAD from Romania and TROTSKY from Russia,” says Deborah Youn, Head of Asia Business at Eccho Rights

Trotsky coming to Mexico and Denmark

Charting the rise of the Bolshevik revolutionary from his early days as an imprisoned political dissident, through to his assassination at the hands of rival Stalin, Trotsky sparked wide interest in the international market with a spectacular launch at MIPCOM 2017.
 
Now Canal 22 in Mexico, and Denmark's state broadcaster DR have picked up the series, which was originally made for Russia’s Channel One by Sreda Production Company.
 
“Russia has been in the spotlight lately, with the centenary of the October Revolution late last year, and the football world cup taking place this summer,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner of Eccho Rights. “This high budget, premium costume drama is a great acquisition for buyers looking to seize on this interest in Russia’s rich history.”

Eccho Rights repping Trotsky worldwide

Trotsky, the new 8-part series from Russian Sreda Production Company will be launched this Mipcom, with Eccho Rights distributing the title worldwide.

A big budget historical epic produced for Channel One in Russia to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, Trotsky will have its world premiere at Mipcom with a gala screening in the Grand Auditorium at Palais des Festivals in Cannes on Tuesday 17th October.

The series charts the rise of Trotsky and his integral role in the October Revolution of 1917, through to his exile in Mexico. The story is told from his own perspective in the form of a confessional testament that he hopes will be his last chance to exact revenge on Stalin who so cruelly betrayed him.

“Trotsky is an epic production that we are very proud to be representing,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner of Eccho Rights. “Trotsky’s story is fascinating and with so much attention on the centenary of the Russian Revolution this year, we have already seen huge interest in the series.”
