MIPTV: Broadcasters across Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), Central Asia and Africa have picked up Turkish drama series Golden Boy (120×45’) from distributor Eccho Rights.

Licence deals for the show have been struck in Albania (with TV Klan), Hungary (TV2), Lithuania (LNK), Uzbekistan (Sevimli), as well as South Africa and Namibia (eTV). Eccho said the show has now been licensed into more than 40 countries worldwide, with previous deals covering Spain (with Atresmedia), Chile (Mega), MENA (MBC Group) and Romania (Antena 1/Happy Channel).

The show also recently became the first Turkish drama picked up for broadcast in Finland, after a deal with MTV Oy and C More, and the first Turkish title licensed by a commercial broadcaster in Sweden (TV4), in deals recently announced by Eccho.

Golden Boy, produced by Istanbul-based OGM Pictures for Turkish channel Star TV, is a classic family drama that tells the story of two sisters who fall in love with the same boy. The series stars Afra Saraoğlu, Mert Ramazan Demir and Çetin Tekindor.

“While Turkish drama has continued to perform strongly on the global stage throughout the pandemic years, Golden Boy is performing at a level not seen for many years, both in terms of domestic ratings and international sales,” said Berkin Nalbantli, sales and acquisitions executive for CEE and Africa at Eccho Rights, owned by Germany’s Night Train Media.
