According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has ordered its first Turkish-language series, giving a 10-episode order to an action drama inspired by the history, and legends, of the Ottoman empire. According to Netflix, the drama focuses on a young man who discovers that he has special powers and who, when Istanbul is threatened by dark forces, must team up with a group of misfit friends to save the city and all of mankind. O3 Medya, the Istanbul-based shingle behind several local ratings hits, will produce the as-yet-unnamed series for Netflix, with Onur Guvenatam acting as executive producer. The show will be written and produced in Turkey and is expected to launch on Netflix around the world in 2018.
