Expanding upon Turkey as the growing Television destination of the moment, please read more about this developing country from MX partner Attentional’s coverage of new Turkish Drama and its global appeal.
There’s a reason why Turkish drama is SO good…
When her husband’s plane goes down with no survivors, a young wife’s perfect existence is destroyed. However, a few days later, she discovers by chance that he never actually got on the plane…so begins the hit new Turkish series SON (“THE END”). It’s just been acquired for a US adaptation by production company Sander Moses, as Turkish drama finally reaches the West.
