The Turk / El Turco

The Turk / El Turco

will start filming a new historical series on the Disney Plus digital platform in the coming weeks. It is curious that for a long time the role was offered to another actor. What do we know about the show right now?

Disney Plus is preparing to enter Turkey’s digital market by betting on numerous Turkish stars. Recall that while the Turkish market is divided by Netflix, and Blu TV, however, by the end of the year the situation may change dramatically due to the appearance of many shows produced by Disney Plus.

One of such projects will be the new series of Ay Yapim company “The Turk / El Turco”, which is an adaptation of the popular historical novel by Orhan Yeniaras. As the well-known journalist Birsen Altuntas confirmed, Can Yaman will be the star of the series.

Recall that in the center of the story is the fate of a Turkish soldier who, by the will of fate, ended up in an Italian village, where he raised an uprising against the feudal lords. Written by Kerem Deren. Directed by Uluç Bayraktar. The journalist promises that a world star will become Can’s partner, and this will surprise everyone.

It is curious that the idea to adapt the book by Orhan Yeniaras came to the producer Kerem Catay back in 2016. The first who was offered a role in the film “The Turk / El Turco” was Kenan İmirzalıoğlu. However, the actor did not like the script and refused to work on the film. In 2022 Disney Plus approved the script idea, made a series out of the film, and Can Yaman was cast in the main role.
