Broadcasters across CEE, Central Asia and Africa have become the latest to pick up Turkish drama, Golden Boy.

The series, from distributor Eccho Rights, has been acquired in Albania (TV Klan), Hungary (TV2), Lithuania (LNK), Uzbekistan (Sevimli), South Africa and Namibia (eTV).

Golden Boy was the most watched series of 2022 in Turkey, according to Eccho Rights.

The title became the first Turkish drama to air on free-to-air TV in the MENA region since a blanket ban on Turkish productions in 2018.

Golden Boy also recently became the first Turkish drama picked up for broadcast in Finland (MTV Oy/C More), and also the first such title licensed by a commercial broadcaster in Sweden (TV4).

Golden Boy, produced by OGM Pictures for Star TV, is a classic family drama that tells the story of two sisters, Seyran and Suna, whose paths cross with golden boy Ferit. The two sisters’ lives change forever when Ferit decides to marry Seyran instead of Suna.
