Eccho Rights signs up Turkish drama series Black Heart

Ahead of MIPTV, Eccho Rights announces a new title for its drama slate. The independent distributor will represent the rights to the new Turkish drama series Black Heart from Aka Yapim.
Black Heart tells the story of a brother seeking justice for the cold-blooded murder of his journalist sister who discovered evidence exposing a powerful media tycoon to be little more than a corrupt gangster. To get his revenge, the brother exploits an orphaned girl who needs his help to save her dying sister.
“We have created a modern mix on the traditional crime story with tales of family ties and passionate love woven into the narrative. It is sure to affect the viewers and create a new area in Turkish drama,” say Ali Gündoğdu and Asena Bulbuloglu, producers at Aka Yapim.

Black Heart will premiere on Show TV at the start of April under the original title, Oyunbozan.

Black Heart includes some of the top actors on the Turkish drama scene today, including Baris Kilic, who starred in War of Roses, and Serhat Tutumluer, multiple award-winning actor from movies such as Ara and Devrim Arabaları and most recently the Filinta TV series.  Gülçin Santırcıoğlu, who recently appeared in Kara Ekmek on ATV, plays the female lead.

“Black Heart caught our attention with its clever script and story of how the hunters become hunted. It’s a great title that we’re pleased to bring to this year’s MIPTV,” says Handan Özkubat, head of Istanbul office, Eccho Rights.
