Did Hande Erçel and Demet Özdemir make a mistake with the decisions they made last season?


Many famous actors made special deals for Disney projects last year. Among these names are names such as Hande Erçel and Demet Özdemir who have left their mark on the last period. The big goals set for the Disney+ platform dazzled everyone last season. With the arrival of this ambitious digital platform in our country, there was an expectation that a new direction would be given to the Turkish TV series and cinema industry. Because, together with the targets set and many famous names, Disney+ had set a goal of turning our country into a production base.

However, it is understood with the decisions taken before even a year has passed, that the appetite of the Disney + platform to produce these new projects was stuck for economic reasons. The economic measures taken by Disney globally led to the questioning of the agreements made in Turkey.

The news that the Disney+ projects, which important names have been preparing for a long time, started to be canceled one by one, were reflected in the press. Backstage information came that the planned works of Hande Erçel, Demet Özdemir and Yılmaz Erdoğan were postponed.

The fans of Yılmaz Erdoğan, who prepared the feature film Organize İşler as a series and completed the script last fall, were very excited. However, the postponement decision for the Organize İşler series caused great surprise.

Likewise, the plans for the second season of Demet Özdemir, who is the face of the platform, of the series named Dünyayla Benim Aramda (Between the World and Me), which marked last season, were also delayed. While filming is expected this summer, fans are now baffled by the news of the postponement.

It was understood that the series called Deniz Kızı (Mermaid), which MF Production is in the preparation stage for the Disney + platform together with Hande Erçel, was also caught in this postponement wave. The Deniz Kızı project, which was expected to start at the same time as Erçel’s series İki Yabancı (Twe Foreigners), which she will start shooting for Fox TV, was postponed due to its high budget.

At this point, fans of Hande Erçel and Demet Özdemir, who have made big deals for the Disney+ platform, ask; Was this deal true?

Players may have earned very good incomes, but there are also problems such as restricting their careers and shifting many of the projects that may come to them to other names. Making million-dollar deals with Disney+ may have offered actors good economic opportunities, but it is also possible that the constraints on career development will cause even greater losses.

Demet Özdemir will be on the Fox TV screen with the “Adım Farah” (My name is Farah) series next season. Hande Erçel will appear in front of the audience with the TV series İki Yabancı on the same screen. However, other names will have a chance in projects prepared for different platforms or television channels, where these two actors may have a role.

In terms of their careers, whether it was right for famous names to restrict themselves to this platform and Fox TV by making a special deal with Disney+, or was it a wrong decision, time will tell.
