Pasiones Picks Up Mrs. Fazilet and Her Daughters


The Turkish drama series Mrs. Fazilet and Her Daughters (La Señora Fazilet y Sus Hijas), part of the Inter Medya catalog, has been acquired for a U.S. Spanish-language premiere on Pasiones.

The story follows Fazilet, a gutsy, smart and cunning single mom who—tired of living in poverty—uses her daughters’ beauty and youth to selfishly secure a better life for herself. The drama will air Monday through Friday on Pasiones.

“Turkish dramas continue to be among the most popular genre with our audience, and we’re excited to bring our viewers another hit novela,” said Francisco Gimenez, senior VP and general manager of cable networks for Hemisphere Media Group, Pasiones’ parent company. “La Señora Fazilet y Sus Hijas has generated buzz worldwide, and we’re confident our viewers will enjoy the captivating drama.”
