Recently launched in Turkey to great results, Be My Sunshine, Love, Reason, Get Even, Love Reserved and My Dad, My Hero are the latest additions to Madd’s international catalog.
Turkish distributor Madd Entertainment is presenting four fresh new series that just launched in Turkey: Be My Sunshine, Love, Reason, Get Even, Love Reserved and My Dad, My Hero.
Together these series make up the latest and greatest dramas on Turkish television today.
“Madd’s unique position in the market not only means we have the strongest Turkish titles, but that we can turn them around quickly,” said Managing Director Ateş İnce. “Turkish drama is a truly international phenomenon. More and more of our customers want to air the new hit dramas just behind or even right along with Turkish audiences. We’re happy to accommodate them!”
Be My Sunshine is the new romantic drama from Ay Yapim, which premiered June 15 and airs Tuesday nights on Show TV under the Turkish title Ada Masalı.
The series features red-hot romantic leads Alp Navruz (The Phoenix, Mrs. Fazilet and Her Daughters) and Ayça Ayşin Turan (Ariza, Love Storm, Meryem). Turan plays Haziran, a city girl through and through, devoted to her career and the fast-paced lifestyle of Istanbul. She can’t imagine any other life, but when her company sends her to a remote Aegean island to clear the way for a new resort, one mistake changes her life forever!
The drama is written by Yelda Eroğlu (The Agency) and Yeşim Çıtak (The Agency, Love Is In the Air) and directed by Ali Bilgin, the guiding hand of hit dramas like Medcezir, Stiletto Vendetta, 20 Minutes, Brave and Beautiful, and The Agency. Their new series is both fun and romantic, being set in a richly-textured world featuring beautiful scenery and distinctive performances. The on-screen chemistry between these two young actors already stole the hearts of the audience.
Love, Reason, Get Even is the hilarious new romantic comedy from Medyapim and No:9 Productions, which just debuted last Friday and Turkey’s FOX network.
The series is adapted from the hit Korean comedy Cunning Single Lady and features Burcu Özberk (Love Trap, Abandoned, Magnificent Century) and İlhan Şen (Grand Family, Falcon Crest), Melisa Döngel (Love Is In The Air, Story of Us, Elif) and Burak Yörük (Nehir, 4N1K)
Esra always swore she would never marry a man like her father, whose business failures left her family bankrupt and struggling all through her youth. Then she met Ozan, a bright young engineer entering the civil service. The two married and led a comfortable, stable life, until the day Ozan quit his government job to start his own company! Soon Esra is hustling three jobs just to keep the family afloat, while Ozan bounces from one bankruptcy to another. Eventually the two are divorced.
Years later, Ozan’s face is plastered over every newspaper, magazine and news show. His social media app has made Ozan insanely rich, a tech celebrity, and one of Turkey’s most eligible bachelors. Esra is still hustling to keep her head above water when she runs into Ozan. Expecting an apology, Esra is furious when Ozan acts cold and arrogant instead. Esra wheedles her way into his company and concocts a plan to take her revenge: She will make Ozan fall in love with her again, and when he does… she’ll dump him!
Nothing goes according to plan, however, and before long the two exes end up in a shaky love quadrangle with hilarious consequences. True love gets a second chance as our leads realize they were wrong about each other all along.
Love Reserved is a brand-new drama from Ojo Pictures and Ay Yapim. The hit series premiered June 9th on Show TV, where it airs Wednesday nights as Cam Tavanlar.
Leyla is a successful career woman who built a national restaurant chain from nothing, but she runs into the glass ceiling when an outsider is brought in to run the division. Worse yet, he’s the man who broke her heart at university! Leyla resigns in disgust and starts a new restaurant right across the street, going to war with her former firm and one-time lover. Leyla is determined to come out on top, but at what price?
The series stars Bensu Soral (Insider) as a strong, beautiful young woman determined to put her ambition ahead of romance, and Kubilay Aka (Love 101, The Pit, Wounded Love) as Cem, the privileged scion of a rich family who once loved Leyla but is now her business rival.
My Dad, My Hero premiered June 7th and airs Monday nights on Show TV under the Turkish title Kahraman Babam.
This series is unique for Turkey, blending action, intrigue and family drama in an exciting, emotional package, Uğur is a veteran firefighter who lost his own wife in a fire. Her family blames Uğur for her death, and now they are fighting in court for custody of his only daughter, Ömrüm. They say he’s an unfit father, that he can’t take care of a little girl on his own, and that Ömrüm must be raised in a happy family environment. But all Ömrüm sees is a hero.
One day Uğur manages to save a room full of children from a terrible fire when he sees a man he recognizes from a year ago. He discovers a clue linking that fire with the fire that killed his wife, which leads him to the dark world of arson gangs. Now Uğur is on a dangerous mission to find his wife’s killers while trying to prove that he’s a fit father for Ömrüm. His court-appointed psychologist, Yonca, will witness Uğur’s war and make the final call.
My Dad, My Hero is a coproduction of Onuncu Ev and Ay Yapim starring leading man Görkem Sevindik (The Oath) as the hard-boiled firefighter, beautiful Ebrar Alya Demirbilek (Hercai) as his loving daughter, and Nilay Deniz (Romance Next Door) as the psychologist.
