Eccho Rights closes first deals for The Promise and North Star in Latin America

Eccho Rights has sold record-breaking Turkish daily drama THE PROMISE and hit romance NORTH STAR to territories across Latin America: Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Paraguay and Bolivia.

“We are happy to see an interest from clients and audiences for more daily drama from Turkey. WOUNDED BIRDS has performed very well in Colombia and Puerto Rico lately, and we are sure THE PROMISE will perform as well as it has done in Turkey, where it broke several records and had better results than a number of high budget weekly dramas. We also have high hopes for NORTH STAR, a touching drama with just the right amount of humour that has developed into a massive audience favourite in Turkey”, says Barbora Suster, Head of Latin America and Iberia at Eccho Rights.

Produced by Karamel Yapim for Kanal 7, THE PROMISE has been one of the most successful Turkish series of the past two years, finishing its first season with record-breaking results, a second season just wrapped and a third currently in pre-production. It tells the story of Reyhan who promises a dying man to marry his son and despite all the hostility she suffers from her new family, is determined to honour her promise. Her husband Emir however rebels against his father and a marriage he does not want and in turn swears to ruin the life of his bride. But as Emir starts to question why the innocent girl should suffer for while it is his father that he wants to punish, Reyhan sees a gentler side to him, something that she finds impossible to resist.

NORTH STAR is one of the leading series on Saturday nights since its launch last year on Show TV. It is produced by Sürec Film and has consistently won its time slot in the total audience demographic group. Kuzey grew up in a rural village in the north of Turkey where life was simple and his future already planned out - he would get a job working 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. He fell in love, got a great job and had three daughters. But all of a sudden his world comes crashing down when his wife walks out and the next day he finds out he is being made redundant. Penniless and with three teenage daughters to care for, he is left with no choice but to return to his boyhood home – and with that to Yildiz, the girl he once left behind…
