Global Agency has acquired the international rights to the new FOX romantic comedy “Mr. Wrong” starring Can Yaman and Ozge Gurel. The agency has announced that there is huge interest in the series and there are ongoing negotiations in several territories.

The romcom is produced by Gold Film, one of the top producers in Turkey behind proven series such as “Daydreamer”, “No 309”, “Iffet”, “Dila” and “Never Let Go”. Mr. Wrong premiered on FOX Turkey and was the highest rated series on Friday among all target audiences.

It tells the story of Ezgi and Ozgur. A lifetime of betrayal destroys Ezgi’s hopes of ever finding Mr. Right and when she meets the womanizer Ozgur, “Mr. Wrong”, it seems a recipe for disaster. But fate, and nagging mothers, conspire to seek a happy ending. The quest for romance can lead a woman in the wrong direction. No matter how much she seeks Mr. Right, she ends up falling for the wrong man despite her best efforts. Such is the story of the beautiful Ezgi, whose love life is a sorry tale of deception and betrayal.

Can Yaman and Ozge Gurel are the leading actors in the new series. They shared leading roles in “Bitter Sweet” in 2017, in which they had great synergy. Can Yaman, the popular actor of “Daydreamer” and “Bitter Sweet” was the winner of TV's Top Leading Man 2019, in which the majority of votes came from Spain, Italy and Philippines. Both of his series have achieved great success in many countries. The romantic drama “Daydreamer” has quickly become a hit, doubling its channel’s average market share in international markets such as Spain, Greece, Israel and Italy.

Izzet PINTO, Founder & CEO of Global Agency, said: “Mr. Wrong” was the most anticipated series of the summer. We are very happy to continue our cooperation with Gold Film and represent the new series of Can Yaman. This series is our first major collaboration with FOX TV and we look forward to building a stronger partnership.

Yadigar Belbuken, FOX Networks Group Turkey - VP, Thematic Channels & Content Distribution, said: “We’re delighted with the successful launch of the show and the buzz it’s been generating internationally at such an early stage. There seems to be an increase in demand for lighthearted content with humorous plot lines. We hope Mr. Wrong will resonate with viewers around the world. And to that end, we’re excited about our collaboration with Global Agency and hope to announce new titles in the coming months.”
