Following the success of My Home, My Destiny, the international distributor is adding the new drama from OGM Pictures to its international catalog.
Eccho Rights announced the acquisition of brand new Turkish drama series The Red Room to its distribution catalogue.
Produced by OGM Pictures in Turkey, The Red Room debuted on TV8 on Friday 4th September, topping the ratings in the AB commercial demo with 19% share.
This represents the second collaboration between Eccho Rights and OGM Pictures who together launched hit series My Home, My Destiny on the international market earlier this year.
The Red Room takes place in a therapist’s office in Istanbul. Vulnerable women pass through to get treatment and handle their traumas and problems. Based on the real experiences of famed psychiatrist and writer Dr Gülseren Budayıcıoğlu, the episodes are built around the harrowing stories of the patients, while at the centre of the drama is the team of therapists in the clinic, and their own personal issues.
“This is an important series that will speak to women – and men – around the world who can relate to the issues faced by those entering the clinic, as well as the personal stories of the staff that we see developing over the course of the series,” said Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights.
Producer Onur Günetanam added: “In this series, we will show our audience the effects of childhood experiences, and the way they can shape our future. We are against all physical, sexual and psychological violence. But no country in the world can prevent violence with laws because violence is a bad behaviour, acquired during childhood, that turns into a habit over time.”
The Red Room stars Binnur Kaya, Tülin Özen, Burak Sevinç, Meriç Aral, Halit Özgür Sarı and is directed by Cem Karcı.
