Anahita Kheder, SVP Middle East, Africa & South Eastern Europe said, “Building on the huge success of Neighbours in Australia and the UK, it’s incredibly exciting to have our first format commission for the show. Neighbours is well-loved all over the world and, now in its 35th year, is the most successful Australian TV export in history. I can’t wait to see the series come to life in a completely new way for Turkish audiences.”

 

Erdi Isik, Drama Operations Executive, Fox Turkey said: “Komşular, the Turkish version of Neighbours by No:9 Productions and directed by Canan Evcimen and Göksel Aydın, will launch on Fox Turkey on 6 November. Much like the original series that is loved by audiences far and wide, the first global adaptation includes a brilliant cast and will be sure to capture Fox audiences across Turkey.”

 

Canan Evcimen, Director of Komşular added: “By coming to Turkey, the legendary drama series Neighbours continues to grow its global audience, which has been established in more than 60 countries. Komşular will be an essential guest in the houses of Turkish audiences, thanks to its strong storyline combined and a warm local feel.”
