The hit Turkish drama will premiere on one of M6 Group’s linear channels in France later this year.
Calinos Entertainment has inked a new deal with RTL-owned M6 Group in France. For the first time ever, the M6 Group will broadcast a Turkish series on one of their linear channels: Woman, produced by Medyapim and MF Yapim, broadcasted on FOX Turkey, will be on air later this year.
Woman is the survival story of Bahar, a young widow with two children. Abandoned by her mother when she was eight, Bahar later loses her father and grandmother as well. At a time when she feels all alone, she meets Sarp, with whom she falls madly in love. After some years of happiness, Bahar loses her husband too and she is left with only two things that make her hold on to life: her children, Nisan and Doruk. Together, they are able to turn life into a game, poverty into fun, and absence into joy.
“We are very excited to announce our new deal for Woman with M6 group in France. Phenomenal hit Woman has been sold to 70 countries worldwide by achieving massive ratings. Following the huge success in Spain, we have a great confidence that Woman will be also a hit in France as the next Western European market on an M6 Group’s channel,” Melis Idil, International Sales Director of Calinos said.
Jose Luis Gascue, Calinos Entertainment’s EVP and Head of Sales, added: “With this sale, Calinos has reached a new milestone by reaching the linear TV audience in France. We trust in the continued success of the show and see endless possibilities going forward.”
Mathilde Escamilla, Senior Acquisitions Manager for the M6 group said: “I am very proud to have negotiated the rights for the first Turkish series ever acquired for the M6 group. We hope “Woman” is as successful in France than in all the other territories where it was aired”.
