Atresmedia picks up Ezel as its latest Turkish acquisition

Atresmedia Television in Spain have acquired the legendary Turkish Drama Ezel, for broadcast on the Nova channel. The series is produced by Ay Yapim, whose series Fatmagül is currently being aired successfully on the same station.

Ezel is one of the most significant titles in Turkish Drama history and has been at the forefront of the globalization of Turkish series. As a readymade the title has scored huge ratings across Eastern Europe, MENA and Asia, and became the first Turkish Drama to be sold in every territory across Latin America.

“The success of Turkish series across LATAM opened up a route in to Spain, demonstrating that for a brave broadcaster, there is a really high quality alternative to traditional telenovelas available now. We are delighted that Nova is taking a chance on Turkish content,” says Laura Miñarro, Acting Head of Sales for LATAM and Iberia at Eccho Rights, international distributor for Ezel.

Earlier this year Nova reported that Fatmagül was scoring the best ratings seen on the channel since March 2015.

“We are very pleased to have a series of Ezel’s quality for the Nova schedule. The commitment of the channel to continue innovating has had a clear answer from our audiences with unprecedented ratings and impact, and we are sure that this success will continue with this great production,” says José Antonio Antón, Director of Programming and Complementary Channels of Atresmedia Television.

The story of a young man on a mission for revenge following a betrayal by his friends and fiancé, Ezel is a multi-award winning series. Since the launch of the first season in 2009, distributor Eccho Rights has completed over 150 licenses for the series around the world.
