MIPTV Spotlight: Eccho Rights


Eccho Rights’ programming slate is led by drama series The Promise, which has already been a ratings success for the distributor.

After just two weeks on air, The Promise received a second season commission from Kanal 7, where the series is scoring four times the broadcaster’s average market share. From the same producer as Elif, Wounded Birds is a drama centered on two orphans who confront dangers and opportunities as they make new lives for themselves in Istanbul after escaping from a ruthless criminal.

Invisible Heroes is based on a true story set amidst General Pinochet’s military coup about two Finnish diplomats who saved thousands of Chilean citizens. “From a production perspective, it is unique,” says Fredrik af Malmborg, Eccho Rights’ managing director. “A co-production between Finland and Chile, it has a star cast from several further international territories like Germany and Sweden.”

He adds: “Our catalog counts brand-new drama series from Sweden, Russia, Romania and Portugal and a number of new scripted formats from Korea.”
