"We are excited to introduce "Leylifer," brought to life in collaboration with Caracol Televisión and Alim Yapım, to the European stage," Lisette Osorio, Intenational Sales Vice President of Caracol Television said. "This production, serving as a bridge between Colombia and Turkey, is a truly successful Turkish-Colombian co-production that carries the rich elements inherent to Turkish dramas in its DNA."
With production responsibilities firmly in the hands of Alim Yapım and international distribution managed by Inter Medya, the Latin American launch of "Leylifer" is scheduled for November, to be unveiled at Mipcancun, further expanding its global footprint. Caracol Televisión and Inter Medya's union in co-producing Alim Yapım’s "Leylifer" exemplifies the power of international collaboration. "We are proud to step forward with our trendsetting formula, bringing together the powerful narrative of Turkish dramas with our production expertise for the global market. This artistic partnership between two international storytelling power players, Inter Medya and Caracol, has given birth to Leylifer, a masterfully woven story uniting both Colombian and Turkish cultures.’ said
Kadir Doğulu, Co-Founder of Âlim Yapım, expressed the duo's efforts to cater to the viewing habits of the Colombian audience with a story set in Turkey. "I believe this series, which will serve as a beautiful bridge between two cultures, will offer us a valuable experience," Doğulu said, expressing his great satisfaction in collaborating with Inter Medya and Caracol Television in creating this project as Âlim Yapım.
Leylifer tells the story of a young Colombian woman living in Spain whose life takes a turn when, on a trip to Istanbul, her Turkish husband disappears and is later found dead. The 120-episode series stars Cuban-American actress Camila Duarte, and Turkish actors Can Verel and Pervin Balcı. "As the first co-production between Latin America and Turkey, this project bearing the signature of Alim Yapım marks a highly successful starting point for future projects we will bring to life," Beatriz Cea Okan, VP and Head Of Sales and Acquisitons of Inter Medya said.
