The hit series, which has already been sold in Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro, will be one of the Turkish distributor’s highlights for this year’s Miptv.
Global Agency has made a strong start to 2020 with The Boy, acquiring the international rights to the powerful drama. The agency has already signed agreements for the sale of the series in Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro.
The series, which was produced by 1441 Productions and aired on Star TV, is a moving drama which shines a spotlight on the challenges of motherhood.
At the heart of The Boy is a child who is adopted by a wealthy family. It tells the story of a woman, the daughter of a prostitute, who loses hope of escaping her miserable life when her lover beats her and feels she has no choice but to let a wealthy family adopt their baby.
Their son’s happiness in his new family evaporates when his adoptive mother gives birth to a child and loses interest in her adopted son. The mansion is cast into turmoil when the family discovers that their enemy is the adopted boy’s father. After the father is released from jail, he goes in search of his lover. Then the lives of all the family are transformed forever.
The momentum of the series is sustained by secrets which are exposed day by day. We see the transformation of the characters; the degeneration of evil characters, the evolution of the good.
Izzet Pinto, Founder & CEO of Global Agency, said: “We are delighted to be representing The Boy which is a perfect fit in international market. In a very short time the drama has received high interest from buyers. It will be one of our highlights in Miptv.
“There are powerful aspects of this series that are reminiscent of the most successful Turkish series which have won the hearts of the audience. For mothers and their children, life can present the most painful challenges. This is a great story about a girl whose life is turned upside down when she goes in search of the son she gave up for adoption and is drawn into the turmoil of a powerful family which is about to be confronted by her former lover.”
