Drama format A Mother’s Guilt is set to be adapted for a local version on FOX in Turkey, co-produced by ABS-CBN in the Philippines and Turkish content production company Limon Yapim.
The agreement is ABS-CBN’s first format adaption deal for A Mother’s Guilt, which is set to commence filming within the second quarter of 2019. The format buy also marks ABS-CBN’s first presence in Turkey. A search is currently underway to find Turkish actors and actresses to take on the parts of the major characters in the show such as Sonya and Paco, who are portrayed by Sylvia Sanchez and Arjo Atayde in A Mother’s Guilt (Hanggang Saan) in the Philippines, where it airs on Philippine TV.
Laarni Yu, sales head for ABS-CBN International Distribution in EMEA, said: “The local adaptation of A Mother’s Guilt in Turkey is another proof that Filipino stories have a global audience because our tradition of storytelling is always anchored on the universal theme of love for family. We are excited for viewers in Turkey to see it.”
