Launched at last year’s Miptv as part of The Wit’s Fresh TV selection, the series produced by Pro TV will premiere on Bulgarian network bTV.
Eccho Rights has made a deal in Bulgaria with bTV for three seasons of drama series Vlad, considered by critics as one of the best Romanian series of all time.
Launched internationally at last year’s Miptv, where the series was selected for The Wit’s Fresh TV conference, the drama is produced by Romanian channel Pro TV. Its first season launched in February-March of 2019 scoring such impressive results that a second season followed shortly after in September of the same year.
Being able to uphold its popularity with audiences, a third season was commissioned and will launch this spring. VLAD follows the story of a man who is betrayed by his closest friends and fiancée and reinvents himself to take revenge.
“Some people were saying that Vlad was Pro TV’s 2019 bet. I somehow believe that betting is not such a risk when you have the best cards in your hand. We are playing to win. Vlad is obviously the result of a sustained extraordinary passionate team effort and as a company we are more than fortunate to have one of the strongest and most dedicated production team,” said Antonii Mangov, Senior Programming Executive.
“The fact that we received the critics appreciation, the fact that Vlad is going internationally is an additional acknowledgement of the sustained work of our fantastic team. We hope Vlad will enjoy the same recognition in other markets.”
“We keep a close eye on the international drama landscape and are excited to see that new and promising projects continue to gain international traction, independent of their origin and language. Romania is a fascinating and fast-growing market and we are proud to present Vlad, undoubtedly one of the most impressive productions out of the territory”, said Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama as well as Sales Executive for Romania and Bulgaria at Eccho Rights.
“We look forward to bringing it to international audiences and are convinced it will be a success in Bulgaria.”
