SPI/ FilmBox Presents Its New Global Drama Channel at Webit
May 13, Sofia. The global media company SPI/FilmBox was among this year’s participants at Europe's innovation and tech flagship forum – Webit. On the second day of the world-known event, May 14, the CMO of the company had a fireside chat titled "If Content is The King, Drama is The Queen - The Case for Timeless Drama Channel", and presented the newest addition to FilmBox’ wide portfolio of channels – Timeless Drama Channel (TDC). The chat focused entirely on the rapidly growing popularity of Turkish drama series and movies, and the imminent launch of TDC in Bulgaria.
Turkish drama series are taking the world to a spin. Currently every year over 100 new Turkish dramas are being produced and exported to over 140 countries, and watched by 400 million people. This turns Turkey into the second largest TV series exporter globally after the United States. Haymi Behar’s session touched exactly on this extraordinary success of Turkish dramas that crosses cultural boundaries by capturing universal themes and emotions. In a chat session with Elena Petrova, Head of Global Sales at A1 Broadcasting (A1 Telekom Austria Group), Mr. Behar presented the new TDC channel and illustrated why content might be the King, but drama is the Queen.
“I’m proud to announce the launch of first global Turkish drama channel, Timeless Drama Channel. TDC has over 800 hours of fresh content including globally acclaimed Turkish TV series such as Karadayi, Black Money Love, Kurt Seyit & Shura and many more. We are confident that TDC will reach millions of viewers and will be popular worldwide” said Haymi Behar, CMO of SPI International.
The fireside chat was broadcasted live and on the official FilmBox Facebook and Instagram pages, and is available in full on the official SPI International/FilmBox Facebook page. FilmBox operates 36 channels in 42 countries on 6 continents and is one of the biggest aggregators of native Ultra HD content in the world.
