TURKISH DRAMAS AND COMEDIES IN SOMOS DISTRIBUTION’S OFFER FOR CONTENT AMERICAS
SOMOS Distribution, the global content distribution company part of the SOMOS Group and led by Luis Villanueva, will attend Content Americas with an offer that includes a selection of high-profile Turkish TV dramas, as well as comedy series and content. The event, to be held from January 24 to 26 in the city of Miami (Hilton Miami Downtown), reactivates Miami as the center of activity in the international television market at the beginning of the year, bringing together producers and distributors from around the world.
SOMOS Distribution presents for the first time in this market the successful Turkish series Behzat Ç, Hammer & Rose. This series, which has been very well received by the audience, is about a rude, violent and morally ambiguous police officer who is the head of the homicide department in Ankara. His team consists of five people: Harun, Hayalet (Ghost), Akbaba (Vulture), Cevdet, Selim and Eda. Behzat Ç and his team usually work together with the prosecutor Esra, who later becomes his love interest. They perseverely hunt down criminals and solve murders while sometimes (and often unintentionally) getting involved in different cases. This series consists of 8 episodes.
One of the highlights of the company's offer is the Turkish drama Love for Rent (Kiralik Ask), which consists of 202 episodes in a dramatic story that ranked at the top of Turkish television. The series tells the story of the waitress Defne, who, with money problems, agrees to try to win the heart of businessman Ömer, but everything risks falling apart when her affections are divided between him and her partner Sinan. . Other important contents are the Greek dramas Wild Bees and Sasmos. Wild Bees is a 125-episode drama, which generated high ratings in the local market, telling the story of three sisters (Eleni, Asimina and Drosso), who try to survive alone, while the richest landowner in the area wants his son, Sergios, to marry the eldest of the three girls (Eleni), to take charge of their properties. Sasmos, for its part, with 135 episodes and also with a story of great acceptance among the audience, is the drama of two families in conflict and two young people who experience love.
Apart from these products, the distribution company has great expectations with humorous programming, so much needed and accepted by the audience in current times. In this genre, SOMOS Distribution presents Enchufe.tv, the successful 72-episode Ecuadorian production that satirizes everyday situations in an entertaining and hilarious way, parodying family parties, mother-son relationships, funny situations, conversations between friends, and other topics. The humor offering also includes Novocomedy shorts, more than 4,000 hours of non-verbal comedy shorts featuring candid cameras, home videos, children and animals in funny situations, magic acts and extreme sports bloopers. This format allows the use of these contents in various ways that lighten the programming or as extended spaces.
Somos Distribution, apart from these products, will show its extensive catalog of films, series, documentaries and soap operas, both from content represented and from sister companies of the SOMOS Group, with series as successful as "Hasta Que te Conocí", "Súbete a Mi Moto" and the most recent “Gina Yei”.
Content Americas will be attended by Luis Villanueva, President and CEO of SOMOS Group, Francisco Villanueva, VP and COO of SOMOS Distribution, and Mariana Villanueva, Sales Director of the company, among other executives.
