Brave and Beautiful breaks new ground in the Far East Brave and Beautiful, the hit Turkish Drama series from producers Ay Yapim, has sold to broadcasters in Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Already sold to over 60 territories around the world, NTV7 (Malaysia), HTV7 (Vietnam) and ABS CBN (Philippines) become the latest channels to pick up what has become one of the most widely exported series from Turkey in the recent past, bringing together arguably Turkey's two most internationally renowned television actors, Tuba Büyüküstün and Kivanc Tatlitug. The series recently debuted on Mega in Chile, and has been scoring an average 25% share, doubling the viewing figures of its closest rival in the afternoon slot.

“Brave and Beautiful has fulfilled every expectation we had from a powerful producer like Ay Yapim, and the amazing acting talent they assembled,” says Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director of international distributor Eccho Rights. “As well as our traditionally successful Turkish Drama markets like LATAM and MENA, this series has also opened doors to a number of newer regions for us.”

Brave and Beautiful becomes the first Turkish Drama picked up by ABS CBN, the Philippines’ biggest broadcast network, a deal which shows that the global appeal of Turkish content shows no signs of slowing.

Nixon Yau Lim, Head of Asia Pacific at Eccho Rights: “The Philippines is the latest country betting on Turkish Drama after seeing a growing interest across the region, in Vietnam and Malaysia particularly. This has even worked its way up to China where we have just completed our first deal for a Turkish feature film, as new channels are eager to test out this hugely successful genre.” Delibal, a 2015 romantic feature length movie also from Ay Yapim, has been picked up by BlueMedia Times for broadcast in China.

Brave And Beautiful is a romance set against a deep, historical family feud that calls in to question Cesur’s (Tatlıtuğ) motives when he appears as a heroic stranger to save Sühan (Büyüküstün) when her life is in danger. Broadcast on Star TV in Turkey in 2016-17, the series has won several Turkish television awards and received the Silver Bird Prize for Serial Drama at the 2017 Seoul International Drama Awards.
