Turkish Drama The Pit Lines Up Deals


Inter Medya has secured a new round of sales for The Pit (Çukur), which has another season coming to Show TV in Turkey this fall.

Following its official international launch at MIPTV, the series has been licensed into Northern Iraq, Afghanistan and Georgia. The Ay Yapim-produced drama is also set to go on air in Chile.

Can Okan, founder and CEO of Inter Medya, said: “The Pit became a phenomenon in Turkey very soon after its launch and we are certain that the hype surrounding the story and characters will reach the entire globe in no time. We are happy to see that the demand for Turkish dramas is still strong and in addition to these new deals, we hope to conclude some ongoing negotiations in various territories soon. We look forward to seeing the series on many international channels.”
