Zeynep to Premiere for U.S. Hispanic Audience


Kanal D Drama is set to premiere Zeynep (O Kiz), fully dubbed into neutral Spanish, for the U.S. Hispanic audience on May 22 on its linear channel and app.

The series centers on a poor young woman who wishes to become an influencer and escape the reality that surrounds her, in which she is the caretaker for her disabled father in an abusive home.

Zeynep is written by Sırma Yanık and directed by Özlem Günhan. The cast includes Dilin Döğer, Erkan Petekkaya, Cengiz Orhonlu and Sezin Akbaşoğulları. The show will premiere on Kanal D Drama at 10:50 p.m. ET/7:50 p.m. PT on May 22, and daily episodes will play Monday through Friday on the app.

“Our premieres at Kanal D Drama continue to fill the screen and lead the large market of Turkish series in the Spanish-speaking world, not only for the quality of our productions, but for the up-to-date stories, which engage and excite our audience,” said Francheska León de la Barra, VP of marketing and communications at Kanal D Drama. “I’m sure that Zeynep is a story that will resonate with viewers who are obsessed with producing content for the social networks, because behind every influencer and social media personalities there are real people, with families, complexes, emotions and feelings.”
