The second episode did even better on Tuesday: it earned 15.7 rating points and 23% share.
“The performance was very good for Turkish content nowadays. In fact, it was the best Turkish premiere of the season. ‘Yargi’ is a good story that appeals to both men and women, has a clear plot, and two main characters with a lot of charisma,” commented Manuela Velasco Ahumada, Head of Acquisitions at Mega TV.
“We are very proud to witness the success of ‘Family Secrets’ on Mega TV, which is one of the top broadcasters in Latin America and a leader in Turkish drama. Their success with ‘Family Secrets’ matches what we are seeing in Europe, MENA and elsewhere in Latin America. This is a title with universal appeal,” said Özlem Özsümbül, Head of Sales at Madd Entertainment.
“Family Secrets” is one of 2022’s hottest series and remains among the world’s best-selling Turkish dramas. In fact, readymade episodes are distributed in more than 100 countries. Chile is only the latest in a long list of territories where the drama has earned top ratings, including MENA, Georgia, Israel, Slovenia, Honduras, Lithuania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Hungary, and Albania. Soon, Telemundo will broadcast it in the United States under the title “Secretos de Sangre.”
The story features Pınar Deniz as Ceylin, a tough lawyer willing to bend the rules in the service of justice. Kaan Urgancıoğlu plays Ilgaz, a no-nonsense prosecutor who does everything by the book. The two of them mix like oil and water, but when Ilgaz’s brother is accused of murder, it is Ceylin he goes to for help.
