MISTCO Sells Trio of Turkish Dramas into Pakistan


MISTCO has licensed the epic dramas Resurrection: Ertugrul, The Last Emperor and Filinta into Pakistan.

Resurrection: Ertugrul, The Last Emperor and Filinta will be available via Pakistani cinema chain Starz Play by Cinepax, thanks to its global content aggregator Grey Juice Lab. The Last Emperor also recently sold to Albania and Uzbekistan, and a third season has been commissioned by TRT. Resurrection: Ertugrul has had four seasons on air in Turkey, and Filinta has finished season two.

“TRT is the leading investor of the best epic dramas in Turkey for years and they have the most extensive know how in the epic drama storytelling and producing by far,” said Aysegul Tuzun, VP of sales and marketing at MISTCO. “And as the distributor of such prestigious epic dramas, we are very proud to announce the new deal with Pakistan for our epic trio.”

Arif Baigmohamad, chairman of Cinepax Group, commented: “Turkish dramas are quite well known in Pakistan and enjoyed by our community. Starz Play by Cinepax feels pride in this partnership with MISTCO and launching three of the best Turkish dramas for our Pakistani audience.”
