Perhaps one of the most curious productions of the season was the Süslü Korkuluk series. Because the fans of Çağatay Ulusoy, who have not been working on the television screen for many years, were eagerly waiting for the series, which was said to be broadcast on TV8. The fact that her partner was Alina Boz, one of the most admired young actresses of recent years, also increased the excitement for the series.
It was expected that the shooting of the series would start after director Cem Karcı, who came back from abroad and took the description of the series, caught the coronavirus. However, for an inexplicable reason, it turned out that the series would not be broadcast on tv8.
It was learned that OGM Pictures partners Onur Güvenatam and Gülseren Budayıcıoğlu could not agree with tv8’s boss Acun Ilıcalı and that the project was abandoned at the last moment. Afterwards, the doors of other channels were knocked down and it was spoken backstage that the new digital platform was agreed with Disney Plus.
After this claim, another claim had been circulating for a while. It was on the agenda that the Süslü Korkuluk series could be broadcast on Netflix. According to the news during the week, an agreement was reached with Netflix regarding the series.
In addition to all these rumors, a claim that emerged for the first time was an indication of why the Süslü Korkuluk series could not be broadcast on tv8 and why there was no channel to broadcast it afterwards!
According to the backstage information given by journalist Birsen Altuntaş, it is said that the producer sent the news “wait for us” to the actors and that the project was not cancelled. In addition, the reason why the series is still not found to be broadcast is hidden in another claim!
There are allegations that the main problem with the series stems from the budget. It is stated that an agreement could not be reached with tv8, especially since the budget of the first episode reached 2 million. It is said that the negotiations with other channels and digital platforms also cause negative returns due to this high budget.
Of course, the audience’s anxiety about the Süslü Korkuluk series, which is such an ambitious production with such a high budget, has naturally grown. Concerns arose that a failure to agree on the budget could lead to the cancellation of the project. Many channels cancel the productions with low ratings when they cannot meet their budgets. As mentioned in the first step, there was a difficult process for the Süslü Korkuluk, which will start with a large budget, but in the end, an agreement was reached with Netflix.
