SOMOS Distribution Picks Up Kanal D Turkish Dramas


MIAMI: SOMOS Distribution has added two new titles from Turkish broadcaster Kanal D to its drama catalog for Latin America.

Matter of Respect tells the story of two siblings who are opposites in every way and whose differences bring about major problems for their family. The second production, Sunshine Girls, follows the unlikely romance between a schoolteacher with three daughters and a rich entrepreneur.

Luis Villanueva, the president of SOMOS Distribution, said: “Kanal D is a channel whose contents uniquely reflect the potential of Turkish products, which have proven hits for our clients and has brought SOMOS Distribution great success as an independent company able to penetrate markets.”

Francisco Villanueva, the COO of SOMOS Distribution, added: “It’s undeniable that Turkish drama is still experiencing a big push, and Matter of Respect and Sunshine Girls enter [the market] at the right time in order to be able to satisfy our clients’ needs. The production values and stories in these dramas will surely drive interest in Latin American audiences.”
