MIPTV Spotlight: Kanal D


CANNES: Three of Kanal D’s top-performing titles are For My Son, War of the Roses and Sunshine Girls, and at MIPTV the company will be looking to place these shows with more broadcasters globally.

Kanal D recently began airing the Turkish adaptation of the Korean series Flames of Desire, broadcast under the local title Hayat Sarkisi. “The results and reactions from the audience are so good,” says Ozlem Ozsumbul, the head of sales and acquisitions at Kanal D. “We are sure that it will be a new phenomenon in Turkey soon and then abroad.”

Production recently began on the new project Tatli Intikam. “Its casting and story are wonderful,” says Ozsumbul. “That title will be full of romance, which the audience will want to watch and feel.”

“We had our best results in 2015 in terms of revenues and ratings for Turkish content exports,” Ozsumbul adds.
