The Turkish distributor announced a deal with STXtv to distribute the Netflix original drama, produced by Karga Seven Pictures, in Latin America.
Global Agency announced that it has inked a distribution deal with STXtv for Netflix Original series Rise of Empires: Ottoman. As a result of this agreement, the docudrama will be sold exclusively by Global Agency in Latin America.
STXtv’s six-episode series, produced by Karga Seven Pictures, a Red Arrow Studios company, uses a blend of scripted and documentary elements to chronicle the rise of Ottoman ruler Mehmed II, aka Mehmed the Conqueror.
This historic epic docudrama, a co-production from Hollywood and Turkey, showcases the drama of the rise of one empire and the fall of another. The 6×60 miniseries unfolds like a real-life Game of Thrones as it chronicles Mehmed II’s fabled rise from 12-year-old child sultan to ruler of the Ottoman Empire and founder of Istanbul. With epic visual effects, a stunning cast, and insights from world-leading academics, one of the key moments of the last millennium is brought to life in stunning clarity.
Tuba Büyüküstün (Mara), Birkan Sokullu (Giustiniani), Cem Yigit Üzümoglu (Mehmed) and Tommaso Basili (Emperor Constantine) are the leading cast members in this landmark TV event.
Izzet PINTO, Founder & CEO of Global Agency, said: “We are extremely happy to be partnering with STXtv and Karga Seven Pictures. They are both leading production companies in the United States. This project has had a major digital impact. We are very proud to represent such a high-budget, quality project.”
Jada Miranda of STXtv said: “Rise of Empires: Ottoman delivers historical and entertaining storytelling that appeals to audiences everywhere in the world, but most importantly, we are proud of the way it brings a greater understanding of the broader culture, changes and world that affect us even today. We’re thrilled to be teaming with Global Agency to bring this program to the audiences of Latin America.”
