Stockholm, Istanbul & Manila – Eccho Rights’ latest sign up is Bitter Sweet Life, the brand new drama series from Turkish producer Surec Film. The drama follows a young teacher battling against the system and the unruly pupils at a new school, using innovative and smart teaching methods to make a difference. With a youthful cast and classroom setting, the show is a fun Turkish drama but with some serious messages to take home for the viewer. The series starts on Star TV in October.
Eccho Rights have previously sold Surec series Kacak and Cherry Season with great success around the world. Cherry Season has been a hit in a number of European territories, most recently in Italy on Mediaset, where it became the first Turkish drama to air on a major broadcaster. Kacak meanwhile aired earlier this year in the US on Azteca America.
Another new addition to Eccho Rights’ powerful Mipcom line-up is You’re My Home, the hit series from the Philippines. A huge ratings winner during it’s broadcast run earlier this year, the final episode achieved a 50% share on ABS-CBN. The readymade and scripts will be distributed worldwide by Eccho Rights.
Nixon Yau Lim, Head of Asia Pacific at Eccho Rights says: “This story really gripped Filipino audiences with thrilling crime elements blended together with a hugely emotional family back-story. It makes for unmissable TV as reflected in the phenomenal ratings performance.”
