The Turkish distributor will highlight TRT’s newest series, a group of four titles –including The Innocents and The Shadow Team– that have been leading the local ratings and generating a lot of interest from the international market.
TRT’s season has been one full of success. Every single one of the four new series has been met with local success and international interest. As their exclusive distributor, Mistco will be presenting these titles at Miptv 2021. “All four series have been leading the ratings”, explains the distributor. “As an exclusive agent of TRT, we are very proud to be part of this success”.
The newest series that has taken ratings by storm is The Shadow Team, another hit from powerhouse producer Tims&B (Bitter Lands). The series launched just over a month ago and has already secured “several” deals, according to the distributor.
The Shadow Team follows a group of elite agents that are selected for a confidential mission. The condition for joining is very important: they must be willing to die. To become shadows, their deaths have to be official, with funerals held and not a single person, no matter how close and dear to them, can know the truth.
The new series follows the successful footsteps of the biggest hit of 2020, the drama The Innocents, produced by OGM Pictures, a smashing hit that has owned the season for TRT 1, starting strong -14 weeks in a row as the number one title- and never losing steam.
The Innocents is based on the memoirs of Turkish psychiatrist Gülseren Budayıcıoğlu and presents real experiences. It tells the story of the love story between Han (Birkan Sokullu) and İnci (Farah Zeynep Abdullah) and their complicated relationship with their friends and families. Ezgi Mola, Merve Dizdar and Gizem Katmer complete the cast.
TRT is well-known for its historical masterpieces, so it’s not surprise that The Great Seljuks: Guardians of Justice has proven to be another spectacular drama, with an assertive story, a fabulous and talented cast and incredible visuals. The series has been a local success and has seen is international penetration expand during the last months.
Of the four, An Anatolian Tale could be considered the closest to the most traditional Turkish drama, with a love story marked by the need to overcome hardships and the importance of persevering and never losing hope.
The drama, produced by Kopru Film, follows the life of Taner, a dreamer from a small town, and his childhood love, Dilek, who comes back to the town after years away.
At the same time, Mistco keeps gathering interest for their ongoing titles, like Melek: A Mother’s Struggle and The Last Emperor; while their strong library, which includes dramas like Resurrection: Ertugrul, keeps expanding worldwide.
