Launched last year, Forbidden Fruit tells the tale of sisters Yildiz and Zeynep, who have very different values and aims in life. Then there’s Woman and Our Story, which “have been two of the most talked-about and best-rated TV series in Turkey this season,” according to Asli Serim Guliyev, international sales director at Calinos Entertainment.
While the former tells the story of a young widow named Bahar, who with her two children at her side, faces a series of hardships, the latter stars Hazal Kaya as an eldest child who becomes her family’s matriarch as they struggle to survive in a poor district. “All of these stories depict the lives of strong, independent and driven women who would stop at nothing to protect their families or their dreams,” says Guliyev.
She adds, “Our aim is to strengthen our relationships with our current customers and establish new ones with potential customers.”
Our Story this week emerged as the most popular foreign TV series in Peru, according to Calinos, with a 12.2 rating. The successful Turkish series can be seen every night at 8:30 p.m. on Latina Television.
