Turkish TV series that have been canceled in the 2019-2020 season
In early summer, the Turkish media discussed the series that will be released in Turkey in the new season 2019-2020. However, life made its changes severely disappointing many fans. So what kind of series was canceled in the new season?
Dr. House / House M.D. Karga 7 Pictures for several months has been preparing for a remake of the famous American series. However, at first Halit Ergenç considered the venture too risky and refused to star in the project. Then the directors Yağmur and Durul Taylan left the show. And in the end, TV8 channel decided to cancel the order. The company is currently negotiating with channel D but there is little hope.
Alien / Yaban. This project has not yet been canceled, but Ilker Kaleli who was supposed to star in it chose to leave the series at the last minute. The actor went to Thailand where he will play in the series of the BBC The Serpent. True, there he will not have a leading role, and he will appear in only two episodes but the series will be released on Netflix. Pinar Deniz who was approved for the leading role along with Ilker is waiting for a new partner.
The series of Cansu Dere for the TV8 channel which Medyapim company was supposed to make. Alas, the actress did not like the script. And 400 thousand Turkish lira per episode did not convince her. Cansu terminated the contract with the channel and left. As a result, the series was simply canceled.
Boss / Patron. The biggest disappointment of this summer. The television company Tims & B that did a project for Show TV signed Burak Deniz for the leading role. His partner was to be Dilan Çiçek Deniz. Alas, it never happened. The channel considered that the budget of the series was too big and it was impossible to sell the show at the preparation stage, since Burak and Dilan were not well-known abroad. As a result, all contracts with the staff were terminated and now producer Timur Savci is looking for another channel or Internet platform that would take the series. Of course, completely different actors will act in it.
Doctor Foster. Another failure of TV company TIMS & B. A remake of the popular British mini-series about a woman who decided to take revenge on her unfaithful husband. Bergüzar Korel who was supposed to star in the project is pregnant. After the birth of a child, she is not going to return to show business soon. The series has been shelved for now perhaps later they will return to it.
These crazy Turks / Şu Çılgın Türkler. And again the failure of TIMS & B. One of the most expensive projects in production, based on the bestseller of Turgut Ozakman on the creation of the Turkish Republic after the First World War. Alas, TV channels are not eager to take on a series that will cost a fortune and it is not yet known whether it will become popular or not. Producer Timur Savci was never able to sell his brainchild to television. Perhaps he should turn to Internet platforms?
However, not everything is so sad in Turkish show business. In a few days, a new television season will begin, in which we are waiting for both the return of old series and the premiere of new ones.
