The screenplay was written by Atilla Engin, who also worked on the TV series “Resurrection Ertugrul”.
It is not yet known who will become Uğur’s co-star in the show, but the well-known journalist Birsen Altuntas has already announced the name of the actor who will play the second main role. This is Burak Tozkoparan, who recently completed shooting in the series “Legend / Destan” of the same producer. He will play a character named Selim. Uğur Güneş will play an officer named Hakan.
The series tells the story of a mysterious plane crash near the city of Isparta, which killed the leading engineers of the Turkish military-industrial complex in 2007.
