Madd Entertainment has teamed up with NATPE Virtual to stage a biannual online event, where broadcasters, journalists and other media professionals around the world can get ahead of the curve on Turkish drama. The innovative new event is part of NAPTE V-Fronts, a new program from NATPE Virtual, and is called MaddNext. The first one will focus on Medyapim’s hottest new series, “The Teacher” and “Nehir,” on July 14. To register for this special event click here.
“The Teacher” and “Nehir” currently air in Turkey on Fox TV and have yet to be presented to the international market. July 14’s MaddNext, hosted live from the Fox TV studios in Istanbul, will be a unique event and a one-of-a-kind opportunity for those outside of Turkey to keep up with the cutting edge of Turkish drama. Medyapim is one of Turkey’s most successful production houses, with a string of successful adaptations including international sensations “The Girl Named Feriha” and “Mother”.
Ateş İnce, Managing Director at Madd Entertainment, will moderate the session. Fatih Aksoy, Founder and President at Medyapim, will present his new series along with Mehmet İçağasıoğlu, representing Fox Turkey. Meanwhile, Ateş İnce will explain the programs’ demographics and early ratings success. Joining the executives will be series stars Ilker Kaleli, Ceren Moray and Afra Saraçoğlu from “The Teacher”, and Feyyaz Duman, Burak Yörük, Biran Damla Yılmaz from “Nehir”. The event will be hosted by Richard Middleton, Managing Editor of TBI.
NATPE Virtual is a new online initiative from the global television membership association, which runs important media markets and conferences all over the world. Not just another glorified Zoom chat, this unique web event is being organized together with online production and webcasting platform Perigon, and participants will have the chance to interact with the panelists as well as each other.
