Turkish TV shows have resumed filming
The past week has been very difficult. While the rubble was being cleared and the victims rescued, there was no way that the TV shows could be broadcast. However, the situation gradually calmed down, and the first signals appeared about the resumption of broadcasting of Turkish serial productions.
Last week, film crews of a Turkish TV series went to the south of Turkey in an organized manner to help clear the rubble and provide assistance to people left homeless after the devastating earthquake that shook the country.
Caravans, generators, and labor force still remain in the disaster zone, providing assistance to the inhabitants of the affected region. However, the huge Turkish TV series industry, which employs thousands of people, cannot stand idle. The production companies have decided to resume filming the series using the funds they have left in Istanbul. Don’t be surprised if the number of indoor scenes increases drastically, and location shooting is not used for the time being.
It is not yet known when the broadcast of the TV shows will resume; the channels are waiting for a joint broadcast on Wednesday evening. Psychologists insist that the Turkish people return to their usual routine as soon as possible.
It is assumed that the broadcast could resume as early as Thursday, but a more realistic date is Monday, February 20th. In the meantime, the premieres of the new series “Family” starring Kıvanç Tatlıtuğ and Serenay Sarıkaya, and “My Name is Farah” starring Demet Ozdemir and Engin Akyürek have been postponed.
