Netflix’s first Turkish Original series has begun production in Istanbul this week – a 10-episode super hero fantasy series that will debut later in 2018.
The series follows the epic adventure of Hakan, a young shopkeeper whose modern world gets turned upside down when he learns he’s connected to a secret, ancient order, tasked with protecting Istanbul. At the story’s start, Hakan couldn’t be further from a hero — just an ordinary guy in this city of 15 million, where East meets West and past meets present. He must quickly learn that his hometown is under threat from the mysterious, mystical Immortals, and it’s his job to stop them. It’s a task he’s not only unprepared for, but resists — will he fulfill his destiny as the last protector?
The show will star Cagatay Ulusoy, Okan Yalabik, Ayca Aysin Turan, Hazar Erguclu and Mehmet Kurtulus and is executive produced by Onur Guvenatam and created by Binnur Karaevli.
