MIPTV Spotlight: Inter Medya


The creative team at Inter Medya, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, has been developing new game-show formats.

“We plan to surprise people with the variety of our game-show formats at MIPFormats and at upcoming markets,” says Can Okan, Inter Medya’s founder and CEO.

The company is presenting Join Instant, an online interactive quiz elimination game show. There is also the brand-new endurance reality show Oasis, which sees two teams of seven couples compete to earn a place at the Oasis. In The Box Challenge, meanwhile, each contestant begins the show with a sum of cash and must decide how much money to allocate to each box. Every box has a surprise inside.

Okan says, “Awareness of the creativity of Turkish people led us to invest in a new genre. We are designing our unique formats ourselves.”

A young man and woman from different social classes in a seaside neighborhood in Istanbul fall for each other in the drama series Endless Love, produced by Ay Yapim. The show airs on Turkey’s Star TV.

Inter Medya’s slate also features the dramedy Hayat, about a handsome businessman and a clumsy young woman. Despite the chaos in their lives, love is waiting for them. In Between is another love story, this one about Neriman, a young woman who has big dreams and begins to question whether the man she is expected to marry is the right choice for her.

“The production quality of our titles is world-class and the strength of their stories is quite well accepted worldwide,” says Okan. “The Turkish dramas in our catalog are fast-moving and very exciting.”
