The Success of Turkish Content: Reaching out to Global Markets

05 Dec 2018, 15:30 - 15:55

Level 4, Roselle Ballroom

The Turkish television industry achieved an impressive success in the last decade, exporting Turkish content to global markets.  Although drama (dizi) has been the leading genre, unscripted format, animation and other content targeting the digital platforms also received significant acclaim. Turkish content is compelling in many ways, calling attention to its creators, particularly its writers and producers. Recently adaptations from Asian content have achieved significant success and travelled around the world as “Turkish productions”. 

Among the significant factors which lie behind this global success, one can cite the high production value, storytelling competence and cultural affinities with the MENA, Asian and LATAM regions. With the participation of the leading representatives from the Turkish television industry, this panel explores the diversity of Turkish television content as experienced in the last decade, with an eye on its richness of genres and the global impact they created.
