The Middle Eastern content distributor Tanweer Group has acquired the exclusive TV rights in the MENA region for the drama series Ruby Ring from GoQuest Media Ventures.
The Media Group Ukraine series is set to launch on Fox’s first Arabic channel FOX Rewayat, which delivers curated dramas. Based on a KBS format and adapted from a Korean TV show, Ruby Ring (95×45 min.) is a story of the fascinating relationship between two sisters, Anna and Yana, as a series of events drastically changes their lives.
As they travel together, with Anna headed to her wedding rehearsal and Yana on her way to an audition, their car crashes, leaving them unconscious with serious injuries and mutilated, indistinguishable faces. Yana was wearing Anna’s ruby ring at the time of the accident and is assumed to be Anna. Having recovered, envious and ambitious Yana decides to play along with the mistaken identity and lies to take away everything her sister has: her face, her love and her life. While Anna is determined to regain what rightfully belongs to her, Yana fights for the happiness she has stolen from her sister.
Jimmy George, VP of sales and acquisitions at GoQuest Media, said, “This deal is a breakthrough for GoQuest Media as the popularity of dramas from the CEE territories starts to take shape. The MENA region offers a huge opportunity and we look forward to bringing this gripping series to more audiences worldwide following this deal.”
Iryna Chernyak, director of TV content sales department at Media Group Ukraine, added, “We are very excited that MGU series continue to travel around the world. MENA is a new territory for our content and we really hope that our quality drama series will excite and win viewers in this region.”
