Pasiones Sets Exclusive U.S. Premieres for Two Turkish Drama Hits


Pasiones has acquired the exclusive U.S. premieres for two popular Turkish dramas, the first of which, Time Goes By, debuts today at 6 p.m.

Set in the late 1960s, Time Goes By tells the story of a sea captain, Ali Akarsu, who returns after a long voyage to his wife, Cemile, who cares for their four children. When Cemile discovers a letter revealing Ali’s secret life at sea, the lives of the entire Akarsu family begin to unravel.

Following the success of the first season of Elif, Pasiones will premiere the second season of the hit Turkish drama on March 7. The second season of Elif picks up from the first season’s tragic ending and continues to follow the Emiroglu family.

“Turkish dramas have amassed an immense and loyal following among our viewers, and we are committed to delivering dramas with the exotic locations, intriguing storylines and striking casts they love,” said Francisco Gimenez, the senior VP and general manager at Hemisphere Media Group, Pasiones’ parent company.
