Among the TV series that met with the audience on the Kanal D screen, the Camdaki Kız (Girl in the Glass), Yargı (Judgment) and Üç Kız Kardeş (Three Sisters) are among the top drama series of the last period. Yargı, which won the first place on Sunday evenings, also manages to be the most watched TV series of the week in AB and ABC1 groups.
The TV series Camdaki Kız and Üç Kız Kardeş exhibit similar ratings. The stories of all three of them are unique and all three have been so successful thanks to their effective scenarios. In other words, there was a thought that “if there is a good cast, if the star names that the audience likes are included, you will definitely be successful”. However, that era is now over.
With the emergence of digital platforms as a new option, it is not easy for television channels to attract and attract viewers. So, how has Kanal D achieved this recently? Sadakatsiz (Unfaithful), the BBC format was adapted from Doctor Foster and had very good results. Arka Sokaklar (Back Streets) is a unique format and has been successfully running for 16 seasons.
However, apart from these two TV series, it is necessary to pay attention to the big debut of Kanal D with Camdaki Kız, Yargı and Üç Kız Kardeş. Because these three TV series are not talked about with their cast, but with their stories. The issue of how well the actors portray the roles also increases the interaction on social media.
However, it has become clear that the “good staff, high rating” equation of the past years is no longer working. The most important thing for the rise and survival of the series is the script. If the story is not strong, it will be difficult for the series to keep up.
The Camdaki Kız series was adapted from Gülseren Budayioğlu’s novel… Yargı is the product of Sema Ergenekon’s two-year screenplay work… Üç Kız Kardeş is adapted from İclal Aydın’s best-selling novel… So, as a result, the story carries the scent of us and the Anatolian lands.
As such, the number of viewers of these serials suddenly reaches millions. Of course, it is necessary to see the tremendous impact these three TV series have had abroad. Comments on social media show that foreign interest in the three Kanal D series, which reflects Turkey’s cultural development, is also very high.
It is a great development that TV series with original stories, reflecting the spirit of Anatolia and displaying the transformation of Turkish society attract so much attention abroad. By choosing such productions in Kanal D, it gets its share of success with the ratings.
