The Uruguayan network released this week its slate of premieres for early 2019. Among its standouts is the Turkish Drama Elif, which finally arrives in Uruguay after having been broadcast in most of Latin America.
Distributed by Eccho Rights, Elif is a Green Yapim production. Its four seasons comprising 700 episodes have been aired on Turkish network Kanal 7 between September 2014 and June 2018.
Apart from its domestic success, the show has had a long international run since it was aired in Indonesia in 2015.
Eccho Rights has licensed Elif to countries all across Latin America, such as Colombia (Caracol), Peru (Latina), Costa Rica (Teletica), Argentina (Telefe), Mexico (Imagen Televisión), Paraguay (Telefuturo) and Puerto Rico (Telemundo Puerto Rico), among others.
Spain recently joined the Elif craze after the show was acquired by Nova (Atresmedia).
The titular character is a small abandoned girl. When she turns six, her mother sneaks her into the Emiroglu family home, where she will grow up a maid. Unbeknownst to everyone, Elif is the eldest child Kenan’s daughter.
Three series from Globo to air on Teledoce
Simultaneously to the announcement of Elif landing in Uruguay, Teledoce revealed it will be premiering three productions from Brazilian network Globo: Under Pressure, The Other Side of Paradise and Jailers, which will join Hidden Truths, currently on the air.
Under Pressure will air Tuesday through Thursday at 10.15 pm, thus extending over a three-week period (since its first season consists of 9 episodes).
Meanwhile, The Other Side of Paradise, will debut next Monday at 9.15 pm, and it will be on Monday through Thursday.
The premiere date of the miniseries Jailers is yet to be announced.
