The international arm of Turkish broadcaster Kanal D has opened a coproduction division and has hired a former Endemol Shine executive to lead it.

Confirming a story C21 broke last month, the broadcaster said the new unit of Kanal D International will be headed by Nilufer Kuyel, who joins the company as director of coproductions and foreign investments. She will report to Kanal D CEO Ozge Bulut Marasli.

Kuyel was previously head of acquisitions and business development at the recently shuttered Endemol Shine Turkey prodco.

Prior to that, she was head of format acquisitions and sales for the ATV channel, where she launched a distribution department for local scripted and unscripted series.

The new division will focus on genres including scripted, unscripted, docudramas, film and miniseries  focused on the local and international markets.

Kanal D, part of Dogan Media Group, recently sealed a coproduction deal with Chile’s Mega and aims to expand its operations in Latin America and other territories.
