Stockholm , Istanbul – Eccho Rights has agreed on a distribution deal with Turkey’s Surec Film for brand new comedy drama New Bride, and will present the series as part of its line up at MipTV. New Bride (Yeni Gelin) has been on air for 3 weeks in Turkey, already scoring great ratings on Show TV, and with over 16% share of the total viewing public has become the top rated drama series on Saturday evenings.
“Surec Film is one of Turkey’s most prolific producers, with Cherry Season and Kacak big successes over the past few years. We are delighted to see that they are scoring another hit with New Bride and we are sure this series will find fans all over the world,” says Handan Özkubat, Head of Eccho Rights’ Istanbul Office.
As well as New Bride, Eccho Rights are also repping Surec’s Bitter Sweet Life, another series that has topped the drama ratings on Sunday evenings almost every week since its start in October. “Eccho Rights is a great partner for us.
