Also as part of the multi-year deal, the companies will co-develop and co-produce new long-form scripted Turkish series which will then air exclusively on Telemundo in the United States. Telemundo says the deal solidifies it as the Spanish-language home of audience-favorite Turkish dramas and novels with the world’s most popular formats and franchises.
“In recent years, driven by their high production values, Turkish series have become favorites of Spanish-speaking audiences around the world and in the United States. This new partnership with Inter Medya brings the power of Turkish storytelling to the American Spanish-language market exclusively with Telemundo,” said Karen Barroeta, Executive Vice President, Production and Development for Telemundo Television Studios. “Merging the power and appeal of Turkish properties with Telemundo’s superior production capabilities further strengthens our position as a leading producer of premium scripted content.”
“As Inter Medya, we are delighted to have transformed our long-standing business relationship with Telemundo into a global business partnership,” added Can Okan, Founder and CEO of Inter Medya. “We are convinced that we will achieve many more great successes through this cooperation, given Inter Medya’s 30 years of know-how and Telemundo’s long experience in the sector. With this partnership, Telemundo and Inter Medya have taken a big step towards strengthening and expanding their positions in the sector, with an upward trend and growth in both production and distribution. I want to say that we are very excited about the great work we are going to do together.
