Kanal D Reveals Mehmet the Conqueror


At MIPCOM, Kanal D is launching to the international market Mehmet the Conqueror, a brand-new, big-budget Turkish drama.

Kanal D is touting Mehmet to be the highest-budget Turkish production ever. The program stars Kenan İmirzalıoğlu (Ezel, Karadayi) as the sultan who conquered Constantinople.

Mehmet the Conqueror will tell the story of the conquering of Constantinople, which ended the era of the “Dark Age” and started the “New Era” of a great empire that will rule the world for hundreds of years.

Kanal D International is also presenting at MIPCOM Price of Passion, which follows the tribulations that arise in a marriage between Ferhat, a hitman, and Asli, an idealistic doctor. Ferhat’s lifestyle might just be too dark to have an innocent love story. One Liter of Tears is about Ece, an ambitious 18-year-old girl whose future looks bright. She has a scholarship to college and is planning to get married, but fate intercepts when she is diagnosed with an incurable illness. One Liter of Tears tells the courageous story of this young girl as she resists the illness and defends life, knowing that she will inevitably lose anyway. The company is also highlighting Tales of Innocence and a second season of Wounded Love. “They have great stories that everyone in the world can relate to somehow,” says Ezgi Ural, the director of sales and business development for MENA, Europe and Asia at Kanal D International.

The company has big plans for MIPCOM, where it will be announcing the names of some of the famous Turkish actors that will star in upcoming productions.
