Mediaset Distribution has closed a distribution agreement with Turkish Sera Film in cooperation with Kanal D with the aim to sell and find new business opportunities in the MENA Regions.

Manuela Caputi, head of Sales at Mediaset Library confirmed: “after 6 years of intensive collaboration in the Turkish market that Sera opened for us, we decided to work together more intensively, extending our partnership to private channel Kanal D’s distribution arm”.  In the last few years, the best-selling scripted formats Matter of Respect and Tuscan Passion were locally adapted in Turkey (Kanal D). “Our partner successfully understood the spirit of our series and this agreement will further strengthen the relationship of trust and confidence between our companies. Thanks to Kanal D’s strong penetration and experience in the MENA, we believe our Italian series can have a new horizon in these territories”, reports Manuela Caputi.
