Eccho Rights Adds The Red Room to Catalog


The Red Room, a brand-new drama series produced by OGM Pictures in Turkey, has joined Eccho Rights’ distribution catalog.

Set in a therapist’s office in Istanbul, The Red Room centers on the vulnerable women who pass through to get treatment and handle their traumas and problems. Based on the real experiences of psychiatrist and writer Dr. Gülseren Budayıcıoğlu, the episodes are built around the harrowing stories of the patients and follow the team of therapists in the clinic and their own personal issues.

The deal for The Red Room represents the second collaboration between Eccho Rights and OGM Pictures, which together launched My Home My Destiny to the international market earlier this year.

The Red Room, starring Binnur Kaya, Tülin Özen, Burak Sevinç, Meriç Aral and Halit Özgür Sarı and directed by Cem Karcı, debuted on TV8 on September 4, topping the ratings in the AB commercial demo with 19 percent share.

Handan Özkubat, director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights, said: “This is an important series that will speak to women—and men—around the world who can relate to the issues faced by those entering the clinic, as well as the personal stories of the staff that we see developing over the course of the series.”

Producer Onur Günetanam said: “In this series, we will show our audience the effects of childhood experiences, and the way they can shape our future. We are against all physical, sexual and psychological violence. But no country in the world can prevent violence with laws because violence is bad behavior, acquired during childhood, that turns into a habit over time.”
