With a second season having recently debuted in Turkey, Lifeline is one of the highlights being promoted by ATV at DISCOP Johannesburg.
“There is huge interest from international markets, and we believe that the number of territories [it has sold into] will be increased very soon,” says Emir Düzel, the company’s content sales deputy manager.
Also being showcased is Broken Lives, which centers on a pair of female police officers, played by Hande Doğandemir and Funda Eryiğit. “The story is about two women who struggle to cope with their unfortunate pasts,” says Düzel. “They’ll find themselves in a situation where they have to cling together to move on.”
Then there is Foster Mother, which looks at the importance of family from the perspective of a child.
“We would like to continue our success [in Africa] and be in the market permanently,” Düzel says.
