TRT-Turkey targets larger international audience for historical drama Resurrection

The historical drama Resurrection (Dirilis Ertugrul) has been a ratings hit in Turkey, and TRT—Turkish Radio and Television Corporation believes this success will help to drum up further sales with buyers at DISCOP Istanbul.

The 6th edition of DISCOP ISTANBUL next week will once again focus on Turkey, CEE, MENA and CIS countries, one of the world’s most dynamic marketplace combination already contributing to 20% of all global Film, TV content and adaptation rights sales with in the foreseeable future an estimated 200 million TV households with possible access to digital services and 500 million mobile subscribers.

The drama tells the story of Ertugrul, the son of Suleyman Shah, who is considered to be the grandfather of the Ottoman Empire. Another period piece that is front and center for TRT is Filinta, which follows a young police officer in the time of the Ottoman Empire. Meltem Tumturk Akyol, International Program Sales Manager at TRT, also highlights What Happens to My Family (Baba Candir) and the miniseries Seddülbahir, in addition to TRT’s new slate of TV movies positioned for prime time.
