The TV series Sadakatsiz, which gave a very successful performance last season on Kanal D, was an adaptation of Doctor Foster. Again, a good result was obtained with the adaptation of an English series. With the successful performance of Cansu Dere and Caner Cindoruk duo, Sadakatsız did a very successful job.
After this big break in the TV show Sadakatsiz on Kanal D, Show TV gained great encouragement for the adaptation of Yalancı, another British production. The duo of Burçin Terzioğlu and Salih Bademci met in the lead role in the series, which will come to the screen with the name Yalancı.
It was a remarkable detail that the experience of Kanal D had a positive effect on Show TV for Yalancı series, and the British TV series came to the fore. The success of English productions after the South Korean and Japanese adapted series makes the channels’ appetite in this regard. It would not be wrong to say that there has been an effect of Sadakatsiz in the recent increase in interest in British projects.
Anibal Güleroğlu, one of the writers of Milliyet Blog, commented on the subject: “In addition to the romantic comedies made in South Korea or Japan, the Turkish versions of the English serials come to the screen with content and performances that do not match the originals, and even surpass them when necessary. For example, ‘Sadakatsiz’, which blew like a storm on the screen last season and whose new episodes were eagerly awaited!
The series, which did not disappoint Kanal D, not only opened a new dimension to the trio of love-betrayal-mystery, but also performed above ‘Doctor Foster’, which had a two-season screen life of five episodes, despite being adapted with longer episodes than the original production. He also revealed the point reached in the scenario.
Undoubtedly, new examples would appear on our screens with the courage gained after this successful course. As a matter of fact, it provided another successful British script material for this season to our series makers. ‘Liar’, which is very popular with its two seasons consisting of six episodes on the ITV channel and nominated for BAFTA awards, seems to bring another ambitious adaptation to our screens with its psychological drama content. In this context, I wanted to look at the original and share my preliminary opinion about the local adaptation of ‘Yalancı’.”
