Caracol Televisión and Inter Medya have entered into a co-production deal for the drama series Leylifer, produced by Alim Yapım.
Shot in Istanbul, Leylifer tells the story of Meryem, a young Colombian girl living in Spain. Her life takes a turn when she and her Turkish husband, Kemal, travel to Istanbul for a few days to attend her sister-in-law’s wedding. Kemal suddenly disappears and is later found dead in a burned car with a woman. Believing Kemal was murdered, Meryem swears never to return to Spain until she finds the killer.
Camila Duarte stars alongside Can Verel and Pervin Balcı.
