ATV’s brand-new title Maria and Mustafa tells an international love story, set in Cappadocia’s fairy-tale scenery.
In the series, Maria travels from her motherland, Colombia, to Turkey to trace her father’s roots. She falls in love with a handsome local landlord, Mustafa, who is technically married, and his wife is not giving up on him easily. “Maria and Mustafa is a classic Turkish drama with a strong love story, supported by well-made character-building,” says Müge Akar, content sales deputy manager. “One of the leading characters is from Colombia, which makes the title more appealing for international buyers.”
She also highlights the cinematography of the series in showcasing the landscape of Cappadocia. A second season of the ratings hit The Ottoman is also on offer, alongside a third season of Hercai.
Akar adds, “ATV’s strong library and variety of TV series have helped us overcome all the obstacles that COVID-19 has brought.”
