Eccho Rights Bolsters Turkish Drama Slate

Ahead of NATPE Budapest International, Eccho Rights has added two new Turkish dramas from Show TV to its lineup.

Love Puzzle, a romantic drama produced by Gold Film, follows two sisters looking for love. Dreaming of You hails from Sürec Film and focuses on a retirement home employee who falls in love with one of the resident’s daughters. Both are set to air on Show TV later this month.

“As well as the heartfelt, raw emotion that is a hallmark of Turkish drama, these series have a feel-good touch which we are seeing a greater demand for in the market,” says Handan Özkubat, the head of Eccho Rights’ Istanbul office. “The success of a show such as New Bride on international channels demonstrates that even lighter Turkish series can travel well.”
