Turkish Drama series Legacy and Redemption have found new international broadcasters following deals by distributor Eccho Rights.
Legacy, a long-running hit set to start its fourth season later this month, has been picked up to air in Iraq (Kurdmax), Hungary (RTL Club) and Colombia (Caracol) taking total sales to more than 55 countries worldwide.
Meanwhile, Redemption, which has just started its second season in Turkey following a breakthrough first year, will find new audiences in Bosnia Herzegovina (Hayat) and North Macedonia (Kanal 5).
Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama, Eccho Rights: “Daily drama series in Turkey have been pushing higher budget titles in the ratings for a number of years, and this is reflected in the international market where demand for reliable, long-running series continues to grow. Legacy, which is nearing 1000 episodes since 2020, and now Redemption, are high quality, high volume series that win viewers day after day.”
Both titles are produced by Karamel Yapim for Turkey’s Kanal 7.
