This year marks ATV’s second consecutive time attending NATPE Budapest, where the company will be offering up Orphan Flowers, which airs in Croatia, Romania, Macedonia and Greece, and has been renewed for a third season.
The company is also promoting Love and Hate, which was sold into Romania, with other territories expected to follow. “Our lineup always reflects the major elements of a Turkish drama,” says Müge Akar, ATV’s content sales deputy manager. “Orphan Flowers and Love and Hate are high-rated series with strong storylines. Love and Hate also stars one of Turkey’s most popular singers as a lead actor.”
Another highlight is Wedlock, a drama series dealing with family violence.
“It’s an important period of the year in order to find space in the fall season programming schedules,” says Akar. “Our first goal [at the market] is to meet with both existing and new clients and promote our lineup in new territories.”
