Calinos Entertainment will officially represent the Fox Networks Group catalogue of Turkish content, previously distributed by Fox Networks Group Content Distribution (FNGCD).
The deal covers titles which aired across the Fox Networks Group channels in Turkey, including 31 Turkish series such as the internationally acclaimed show “No.309,” “Second Chance,” “In Love Again,” “Lodestar,” and “Cherry Season”, as well as box office Turkish movies and documentaries produced for National Geographic Turkey.
