Fox Networks Group Content Distribution has announced a format deal for the Turkish series, which will now be remade by production company 3Line Media for RTM channels across Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.

Originally produced by Film Evi for FOX Turkey, drama series Heartbeat is traveling to Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei after Fox Networks Group Content Distribution (FNGCD) secured a format deal for the show's remake.

It was production company 3Line Media which has acquired the format rights to remake the show for RTM channels across Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.

FINAS, the National Film Development Corporation of Malaysia, provided 3Line Media with a grant to secure funding of the format and production is underway with a star-studded local cast onboard.

Heartbeat (26x60) tells the story of a rich and handsome man, Rüzgar, who tragically loses the love of his life just before they are due to be married. He’s inconsolable and retreats to a coastal town to be on his own.

Here he meets a young woman, Zeynep, who has returned home after being cheated on and eventually they fall in love. What neither of them know, however, is that the Zeynep was the recipient of a transplanted heart – from Rüzgar’s dead fiancé.

"Turkish producers are consistently creating big compelling stories with universal themes that really resonate with Asian audiences," mentioned Harris Ahmad Shah, MD of 3Line Media. "Heartbeat is a different type of love story, beautifully told, and we are very much looking forward to remaking this FOX Turkey classic in Malaysia, showcasing our own talent and incredible scenic backdrops."

Julius Toh, Fox Networks Group Content Distribution’s VP of sales for Asia Pacific also commented: "Heartbeat has already been sold as a finished program to OTV, the leading OTT platform in Thailand and Cambodia and we are also about to finalize deals with two other clients in the region so the title is starting to gain some real traction in South East Asia."

"The new production of Heartbeat has a fantastic team behind it in 3Line Media and the support from FINAS demonstrates a huge commitment to re-telling this wonderful story," added the executive.
