A pair of formats leads the slate that Inter Medya brings to MIPCOM, including Money Monster.
Money Monster is a quiz show in which a contestant tries to win as much cash as he or she can count in one minute. “A unique and fun quiz show in which the contestant wins as much cash as he/she can count in one minute, Money Monster is not only entertaining but also stimulating,” says Can Okan, the company’s founder and CEO.
Then there is The Tactic, which Okan describes as “an adventure show where contestants get to showcase their strength and endurance.”
The quiz format 1 vs. 10 is also among the highlights that Inter Medya is presenting to international buyers at the market in Cannes. “Instead of answering the questions, [the contestant] needs to choose one person among ten who he/she thinks would not know the answer,” says Okan. “However, if that person answers correctly, they win. If not, the contestant wins!”
Another highlight is Mrs. Fazilet and Her Daughters, a new drama from Turkey’s Avşar Film. “Mrs. Fazilet and Her Daughters tells the story of an ambitious woman, whose biggest dream is to become rich and famous,” says Okan. “Determined to settle her anger and misery, she uses her daughters’ beauty to achieve her goal. The series has started to attract a lot of attention from various territories.” The Turkish drama stars Nazan Kesal, Deniz Baysal, Afra Saraçoğlu, Mahir Günşiray and Gülsen Tuncer.
Another highlight from the company’s slate is Hayat, a comedic drama. “Although a new genre in Turkish television, we believe that Hayat will open the door to more in the future,” says Okan. The dramedy, which is produced by Bi Yapim, features a cast that is led by Hande Erçel, Burak Deniz, Özcan Tekdemir, Demet Gül and Merve Çağiran.
Then there is In Between, based on the novel Fatih-Harbiye penned by Peyami Safa. The series features Neriman, who lost her mother as a little girl. She is a traditional young woman who lives with her father Faiz and her aunt Gülter in the suburbs. Although she grew up in a modest environment, her dreams are very big. The Koliba Film production stars Neslihan Atagül Doğulu, Kadir Doğulu, Dilara Öztunç and Yunus Emre Yildirimer.
