Global Agency Picks Up Rise of Empires: Ottoman


Global Agency has inked a distribution deal with STXtv for the Netflix original series Rise of Empires: Ottoman for LatAm.

STXtv’s six-episode series—produced by Karga Seven Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company—uses a blend of scripted and documentary elements to chronicle the rise of Ottoman ruler Mehmed II, aka Mehmed the Conqueror. The 6×1-hour miniseries chronicles Mehmed II’s fabled rise from 12-year-old child sultan to the ruler of the Ottoman Empire and founder of Istanbul.

Tuba Büyüküstün (Mara), Birkan Sokullu (Giustiniani), Cem Yigit Üzümoglu (Mehmed) and Tommaso Basili (Emperor Constantine) star.

Izzet Pinto, founder and CEO of Global Agency, said: “We are extremely happy to be partnering with STXtv and Karga Seven Pictures. They are both leading production companies in the United States. This project has had a major digital impact. We are very proud to represent such a high-budget, quality project.”

Jada Miranda of STXtv said, “Rise of Empires: Ottoman delivers historical and entertaining storytelling that appeals to audiences everywhere in the world, but most importantly, we are proud of the way it brings a greater understanding of the broader culture, changes and world that affect us even today. We’re thrilled to be teaming with Global Agency to bring this program to the audiences of Latin America.”
