Kanal D Drama to Premiere Black and White Love in the U.S.


Kanal D Drama is gearing up to launch the Turkish drama Black and White Love (Siyah Beyaz Aşk) exclusively and for the first time in the U.S. Hispanic market.

The romantic drama debuts on Kanal D Drama in the U.S. on April 20. Kanal D Drama followers will be able to watch the series’ first episode ahead of the premiere via the channel’s official Facebook page on April 19.

Birce Akalay stars in the series as Aslı Çinar, an idealistic young neurosurgeon for whom saving lives is her greatest pride. İbrahim Çelikkol plays Ferhat Aslan, a criminal hitman who does dirty work for his uncle Namik, patriarch of the prestigious millionaire Emirham family. After many seemingly destined coincidences, their paths cross in the most unexpected way.

“It is a pleasure to present the super premiere of stories such as Amor en Blanco y Negro,” said Francheska León de la Barra, marketing director for Kanal D Drama in the U.S. and LatAm. “Black and White Love, as it is recognized in English, has been one of the most commented-on Turkish series on social media in the U.S., and we are excited to bring this title to our Hispanic audience for the first time in their native language. We will continue betting on stories such as Amor en Blanco y Negro, series that will captivate female audiences with non-traditional but realistic plotlines, which deal with themes such as the precipitous nature of love and happiness through the questioning of failures, traumas and one’s personal beliefs.”
