Kanal D International has licensed the new hit drama Ruthless City to Kanal D Romania.
Produced by Avşar Film, the series is directed by Cevdet Mercan and written by Sırma Yanık. The drama follows Seher, whose life changes dramatically when her mother-in-law makes a deal to sell one of her daughters to a wealthy man from her hometown.
Ekin Koyuncu, Kanal D International’s CEE sales executive, said: “Ruthless City has gathered some of the most prominent directors, scriptwriters and producers that we know from previous hit Turkish dramas with great international success. The story is giving the audience a duality governed by the balance of light and darkness, within each of us. I believe these human instincts and the strength of the storytelling are some of the factors lying behind the success of the title. The production team has already started working for the second season in Antakya, where the story originally was born and we are excitedly waiting for the new season. We are happy to announce the sale of this hit drama to Kanal D Romania which is the first of many more in the whole region.”
Ilcnur Agop, content production manager of Kanal D Romania, added: “Our priority has always been to have different stories and unique content on our screen, we never prioritize the selection of the cast but prefer stories that will gain international success.”
