Müge Akar, ATV: “Safir is our star title, but we are presenting a full catalog for Mipcancun”

The Head of Sales at ATV spoke to ttvnews about the titles they’re presenting at this year’s event in Mexico, led by Safir, which will have its own special screening on Thursday, along with Golden Cage and new seasons of their leading dramas.

ATV Distribution is present at this year’s Mipcancun with a full catalog of new titles and seasons to offer the international market.

First on the list is of course Safir, the Turkish distributor’s most recent drama, which will have its own screening during the event.

“Tomorrow we will have a special screening where attendees will be able to see the cut for the international market. We will be able to share a first look at this special content”, Müge Akar, Head of Sales at ATV, said to ttvnews at the event.

The special presentation will take place at the Cancun Theatre on November 16th from 13:15 to 14.30.

Safir centres around the Gulsoy Family, one of the most well-known families in Cappadocia. With the arrival of the eldest son, Ates, from America, the Gulsoy family finally reunites after a long separation. Feraye and Yaman have been each other’s first love since childhood, hiding it from everyone. On the night of Feraye’s birthday, Yaman’s brother Okan is involved in a crime by accident and everyone’s lives get upside down. Yaman will be compelled to marry Aleyna in order to keep his brother safe. Ates will marry Feraye to reunite his family and protect Feraye’s child.

But Safir is only one of many new productions in ATV’s catalog for the event, as revealed by the executive: “We will have a very busy schedule at Mipcancun. It already started very good. The launch of Safir is our prime target, but we will also be sharing a sneak peak preview of another title, Golden Cage, our newest production”, she said.

“We will also be talking about the fourth season of For My Family, which is a highly successful title in Latin America. And we are also presenting the second seasons of Street Birds and The Father, and the fifth season of The Ottoman”.

“We have a full and fresh catalog for Mipcancun this year,” she concluded.
