The successful Turkish period drama distributed worldwide by Inter Medya, continues to extend its dominance and success across the globe with steady steps.
The famous series “Bitter Lands” has reached more than 30 territories worldwide and 16 territories in Latin America. Through this expansion, the series once again proved the global success of Turkish dramas. Recently, Inter Medya announced further agreements for “Bitter Lands”. The series that has already been broadcast in many countries, was licensed in Montenegro to TV Vijesti and in Macedonia to Media Acquisition (Sitel). In addition, the series is planned to go on air in Latin America on Argentina’s Telefe and on Chile’s Mega.
Locally, the series continues to remain steady and strong ratings. In its second season, the series is still ranking number one on Thursday evenings. The latest episode, broadcast in Turkey last Thursday, reached 16,35% ratings and over 30% share. The rating smasher achieves similar results in the international arena as well. The series has been getting great ratings since it premiered on Montenegro’s TV Vijesti and managed to acquire a place as the most-watched Turkish drama of the season in Montenegro. It has also premiered to a huge audience on Kanal D in Romania. Its latest episode watched by 2 million viewers, achieving a market share of 21,8%.
“Bitter Lands achieved great international success and as Inter Medya, we are happy to be a part of this. The title carries a strong Turkish Drama DNA, with a story that appeals to all audiences across the globe. Bitter Lands received great rating results in the territories it was broadcast in. This success is not a coincidence because the series distinguishes itself from others through its high production quality and a strong cast. We are sure that it still has great potential and this success will continue to grow,” said Can Okan, Founder and CEO of Inter Medya.
Produced by one of the Turkey’s leading production company TIMS&B Productions, “Bitter Lands” tells the story of a legendary love that begins in Istanbul during the 1970s and continues in the fertile lands of Southern Turkey throughout the trials of evil, ambition, and tyranny. It asks whether love is eternal against realities of life and tests the resistance of love and the goodness of the human heart amidst a series of turbulent events.
