As its second season premiered in Turkey on Kanal 7 with great success, the Turkish drama has been sold in Poland, India, Lithuania and Romania.
Eccho Rights has closed several international sales deals for Turkish Drama series The Promise, which has just made its second season debut in Turkey.
The series, which scored record breaking ratings for its host broadcaster Kanal 7, has been picked up in Poland (TVP), India (MX Player) Lithuania (SIA All Media), and Romania (Antena Group/Happy Channel).
These territories join Imedi TV in Georgia which became the first international broadcaster to acquire the series earlier this year.
At the same time The Promise returned last week to Turkish screens with the ratings once again impressing for Kanal 7. The daily series was recommissioned after just two weeks of a highly successful initial run earlier this year.
The Promise scored more than three times Kanal 7’s average share and the channel’s rank rose from 8th overall to 3rd place during broadcast of the tension-filled, romantic, family drama.
“The Promise is a really amazing production, with the look and feel of a high budget, weekly series but broadcast daily in Turkey, where local audiences have been tuning in at a higher rate than even some of the most prestigious prime time dramas from the past year,” says Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at international distributor Eccho Rights.
