Known for their roles in dramas like Bitter Sweet and Daydreamer, the actors star in the new Fox Turkey drama, which premiered to great success and will be distributed internationally by Global Agency.
Global Agency has acquired the international rights to the new FOX romantic comedy Mr. Wrong starring Can Yaman and Ozge Gurel. The agency has announced that there is huge interest in the series and there are ongoing negotiations in several territories.
The romcom is produced by Gold Film, one of the top producers in Turkey behind proven series such as Daydreamer, No 309, Iffet, Dila and Never Let Go. Mr. Wrong premiered on FOX Turkey and was the highest rated series on Friday among all target audiences.
It tells the story of Ezgi and Ozgur. A lifetime of betrayal destroys Ezgi’s hopes of ever finding Mr. Right and when she meets the womanizer Ozgur, Mr. Wrong, it seems a recipe for disaster. But fate, and nagging mothers, conspire to seek a happy ending. The quest for romance can lead a woman in the wrong direction. No matter how much she seeks Mr. Right, she ends up falling for the wrong man despite her best efforts. Such is the story of the beautiful Ezgi, whose love life is a sorry tale of deception and betrayal.
Can Yaman and Ozge Gurel are the leading actors in the new series. They shared leading roles in Bitter Sweet in 2017, in which they had great synergy. Can Yaman, the popular actor of Daydreamer and Bitter Sweet was the winner of TV’s Top Leading Man 2019, in which the majority of votes came from Spain, Italy and Philippines. Both of his series have achieved great success in many countries. The romantic drama Daydreamer has quickly become a hit, doubling its channel’s average market share in international markets such as Spain, Greece, Israel and Italy.

As their friendship blossoms, Ozgur helps Ezgi seek to win another man’s heart. In turn he asks her to pretend to be his girlfriend to please his nagging mother. But their game is destined to bring Ezgi closer to Ozgur – Mr. Wrong – awakening hopes of the happy ending she always desired.
