MIPCOM Spotlight: Global Agency


From the producers of Magnificent Century, Gulperi is a brand-new drama that Global Agency is introducing to international buyers.

It tells the story of a woman who has been treated unjustly her entire life just because she is female. After her husband’s unexpected death, she is in danger of losing her children. “This drama argues that a mother is only a mother when her children are by her side,” says Senay Filiztekin, Global Agency’s head of drama acquisitions. “Gulperi will remember what it feels like to really love someone as she reunites with a man from her past.”

In Finding Hope, a drama from the producers of Mother, a veteran soldier meets and falls in love with the beautiful Elif. Global Agency’s slate also includes the romantic dramedy Daydreamer.

Eleven women are taken away from their families and everyday lives for a luxury retreat, leaving their husbands to run the household, in the format Runaway Women. Umay Ayaz, the company’s head of acquisitions, calls it “one of the catchiest, most different and exciting formats in our catalog.” She adds, “It seeks to raise awareness about the roles that men and women have undertaken in today’s society, holding a mirror to practices that have been accepted as common in our everyday lives in relation to gender roles and questioning the balance in sharing the tasks.”

Global Agency is also promoting the format Auction Queens. “It is a real auction experience with all the excitement of a bidding war,” says Ayaz. The slate also includes the family adventure game show Tahiti Quest.
