Global Agency's groundbreaking drama series "1001 Nights" has once
again cemented its position as one of the world's most-watched Turkish
scripted shows. After a huge success in Chile, it has moved into Uruguay
and will soon be scheduled for US Hispanic audiences.
Since the beginning of March 2014, “1001 Nights” has been airing on
Mega Chile for four days a week in a prime time slot from Sunday through
Wednesday. It became an immediate leader in the prime time ratings and
has now become the most successful foreign series in the history of the
country. Chile is known for being a particularly competitive market and
this remarkable performance has opened the way for new negotiations in
other countries in the region such as Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia,
Argentina and Brazil.
Originally titled “Binbir Gece”, the series aired daily for three
seasons on Turkey's Kanal D between 2006 and 2009. “1001 Nights” is one
of the highest-rated Turkish exports, broadcasting in more than 50
countries, primarily in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East,
North Africa and Latin American countries.
Izzet Pinto, CEO of Global Agency, said of the new deals: “1001
Nights is one of the most loved dramas of all time, and we can't wait to
introduce new audiences to its compelling story and characters."'
