KIT Film Studio signed an agreement with the international company Global Connection International Media Group for the joint production of the made-for-TV film Sultan Moego Serdtsa (Sultan of my heart) for Channel One.

The filming of the 24-episode television film will begin in late September 2017 and will take place at one of the largest Turkish film studios, Maya Productions Ltd. Kocaeli Studios, which is located near Istanbul. The series will feature Russian and Turkish actors, as well as actors from other countries. The film will be shot in Turkish and dubbed into Russian in Russia.

On the Turkish side, the production will be carried out by Maya Productions film company, whose interests on the international market are represented by Global Connection International Media Group.

The partnership agreement was signed by the production director of KIT Film Studio Alexander Bondaryov and the general coordinator of the project from Global Connection International Media Group Onur Taysu.

Alexander Bondaryov, production director of KIT Film Studio: “With this project we are rising to a new level of international co-production in the making of series. I hope that we will please the viewers of Channel One with a quality, international television product. The Russian viewers, at one time, fell in love with the series Velikolepnyi Vek (The Magnificent Age). I hope that Sultan Moego Serdtsa will also win the hearts of our TV viewers. When making the decision about cooperation, it was very important for us that the main female role in the series is played by a Russian actress.”

Onur Taysu, general coordinator of the project from Global Connection International Media Group: “This is our first experience of international joint production and we are confident that it will be an excellent cooperation! I want to say that the project Sultan Moego Serdtsa has all the qualities necessary to become a successful and gripping series not only in Russia and Turkey, but also in the whole world.”
