Eccho Rights Notches Up Deals on Cennet


Eccho Rights has landed a raft of sales for the new Sürec Film series Cennet (Cennet’in Gözyaşlari), which has been airing weekly on ATV in Turkey since September.

The Turkish drama has been picked up in Bulgaria (BTV), Romania (Happy Channel), Lithuania and Latvia (SIA), Kosovo (Koha TV) and Georgia (Rustavi 2). There are also negotiations in several territories across Europe, Latin America and Asia. The series tells the story of a young woman’s struggle to reconnect with her biological mother after years of estrangement.

Handan Özkubat, the head of Eccho Rights’ Istanbul office, said: “Cennet is an emotional story that has really struck a chord with buyers. It displays all the hallmarks of a classic Turkish drama: an emotional family story, a beautiful romance and a brilliant cast.”
