Romania readies Ezel remake

Vlad, the Romanian version of Ezel

Romanian broadcaster ProTV has commissioned a local remake of a classic Turkish drama following a deal with Scandinavian distributor Eccho Rights.

A 13-episode Romanian version of Ezel has gone into production and will air under the local title Vlad in 2019. The crime drama will star Romanian talent including Olympia Melinte and Diana Sar, with Adrian Nartea in the title role.

The original Ezel is produced by prolific Turkish studio Ay Yapim, originally for Show TV in 2009 and then for ATV ever since.

Eccho has secured more than 150 licences for the series around the world, with the finished tape airing in Eastern Europe, MENA, Asia and Latin America. The format has been adapted in Mexico, Russia and Armenia.

The story focuses on a young man seeking revenge after a betrayal by his best friend and fiancée. In 2010, Ezel was named Best Scripted Format at the C21 Format Awards.
