The distributor announced a new deal with Ukranian network, Inter UA, for the dramas Melek: A Mother’s Struggle and Hold My Hand.
After its successful debut in Turkey, Melek: A Mother’s Struggle, broadcast on TRT 1 and produced by Us Yapım, is now on air on Ukrainian network, Inter UA. The series, which airs on Wednesday nights, tells Melek’s struggle with life challenges all alone with her children while she is also with deep regrets for leaving her family and the man who was in love with her behind.
Also, Inter UA and Mistco have sealed a deal for bestselling title Hold My Hand, which is a love story which starts with tragedy but becomes later fortune, from TRT1 and Us Yapım.
Sureyya Onal, the producer of Melek: A Mother’s Struggle and Hold My Hand, commented: “Our foremost priority was to get the audience to believe that the story occurs within a family similar to their ones. Turkish people generally attach utmost importance to their families. We used the Turkish family values intensely in the series. But while doing so, we cared not to detach from the universality of love, kindness, and conscience in our stories. So, we have reached the audiences from all around the world with our titles.”
Aysegul Tuzun, Managing Director at MISTCO, said: “We are very happy to make our first deal with Inter UA for our successful brands Melek: A Mother’s Struggle and Hold My Hand. Melek: A Mother’s Struggle is doing well in Turkey despite huge competition and our expectation is high for international sales. Besides this title, Hold My Hand is still our one of driven content that has been sold to over 30 countries as of now.”
