Eccho Rights announced it acquired distribution rights for "Behind the Veil", a brand new Turkish Drama series from Kanal 7 and Film Yapim Merkezi (FYM). The series, which is currently airing twice a week in Turkey, represents the latest collaboration between Eccho and Kanal 7, after a string of hit titles have put the Turkish broadcaster on the international map. "Elif", "The Promise", "Legacy" and more recent titles such as "Redemption" and "Winds of Love", have all scored tremendous ratings at home, and gone on to secure licenses all around the world.

Handan Özkubat, Director of Turkish Drama at Eccho Rights, said: “To bring this new title to the market in partnership with Kanal 7 is an exciting step for us, having enjoyed such mutual success with their original productions over the past decade. 'Behind the Veil' is another example of a commission that understands the demands of a global audience but brings a unique take on telling that classic, romantic story.”

"Behind the Veil" is the story of Hançer, a young woman who has faced a life of challenges but always met them face on. When her only family member - older brother Cemil - falls ill, she will do anyting to get him the treatment he needs. She enters into a marriage of convenience with a wealthy bachelor who has his own demanding family to satisfy, but neither of them could expect that their relationship would turn into something far more than just convenient.
