Pasiones Picks Up Turkey’s Unforgettable


MIAMI: Starting today, the hit Turkish drama Unforgettable (Unutulmaz) is airing every weekday at 7 p.m. on the Spanish-language network Pasiones in the U.S.

Unforgettable centers on a successful young man who gets drunk and cheats on his fiancée before his wedding, only to later find out that he actually had an affair—and is in love—with his would-be sister-in-law. The drama stars Serhan Yavaş, Sinem Öztufan, Özlem Yılmaz and Buğra Gülsoy, among others. It is part of the ATV Distribution catalog.

Unforgettable is the second Turkish novela to air on Pasiones, which debuted Mercy (Merhamet) earlier this year.

“Turkish dramas are super hot right now, especially in Latin America, and have been topping ratings charts across the world,” noted Francisco Gimenez, the general manager of cable networks for Pasiones parent company Hemisphere Media Group. “Merhamet did incredibly well for us, signaling the craving for good story lines from other top novela-producing regions outside of Latin America.”
