MIPTV Spotlight: Kanal D International


The historical drama series Mehmed the Conqueror, in the Kanal D International catalog, tells the story of a young Sultan Mehmed, who travels to Edirne with the dream of taking over Constantinopolis after he learns that his father, the sultan, has died.

Mehmed the Conqueror is the priority focus for Kanal D,” says Kerim Emrah Turna, the company’s director of content sales and business development. “This will be the biggest hit of the year.”

Another period piece in the catalog is Wounded Love, which tests whether true love can survive the most trying conditions. He calls Wounded Love “one of the most beautiful, epic romances ever told.”

Price of Passion, meanwhile, tells the story of a hitman and an idealist doctor, two very different people who marry and grow closer to each other over time.

“These three dramas are examples of original, high-quality content,” he adds.

The company is also highlighting Wildrose. In the drama series, 25-year-old Gülizar writes songs and dreams of becoming famous. She lives with her mother’s friend in a poor neighborhood, but she inherits a large sum of money when her wealthy father passes away.
