Leyla ile Mecnun, which attracted great attention when it was broadcast on TRT1 screens and remembered as a different production on the screen with its absurd comedy story, met with their fans again.

After Acun Ilıcalı bought the rights of the series for the Exxen platform from TRT, there was a period of re-negotiation with the team. The biggest problem in this process arose because of Cengiz Bozkurt, who played the character of Erdal Bakkal. Because the actor did not want to be in the series again.
