Turkish drama series Ezel conquers Latin America

Eccho Rights working in partnership with SOMOS Distribution has secured several broadcast deals in Latin America for Ezel, the best selling Turkish drama series from Ay Yapim. The latest countries to sign up for Ezel are Unitel in Bolivia, TV Accion in Paraguay, Frequencia Latina in Peru and Caracol in Colombia. Eccho Rights has also recently closed licences in Brazil, Ecuador and further territories in Central America. This means that the series has now been sold to every country in Latin America.

Six months ago Ezel premiered on Mega in Chile and was an instant hit with audiences. This success provided the springboard for further deals in the region. Telefee in Argentina and Monte Carlo TV in Uruguay soon picked up the series and the show is currently scoring excellent ratings for both channels.

Over the past 12 months Turkish drama has shaken up Latin America TV market. The region that created and exported the Telenovella to the world is now being seduced by the top quality dramas coming out of Turkey. The partnership between Eccho Rights and SOMOS Distribution has been recognised as a pioneering force in bringing Turkish dramas to Latin America. Eccho Rights recently recruited Barbora Susterova from Imagina as sales and acquisition executive director for Latin America to build on this success.

Francisco Villanueva, vice president and chief operating officer of SOMOS Distribution, said, "Ezel is a good representation of the power of the Turkish drama with a script full of suspense, high production values and excellent casting. This particular drama is the spearhead that is opening up Latin America to a new competitor, reinvigorating the strength of a genre that commands the programming grids of the region."

Ezel is produced by Ay Yapim and aired on ATV and Show TV in 2009-2011. The series stars Kenan Imirzalioglu (Ezel), Cansu Dere (Eysan), Sedef Avci (Bahar), Yigit Özsener (Cengiz Atay) and Baris Falay (Ali 'Pinzas' Kirgiz), among others.
