The Turkish drama Bir Zamanlar Çukurova (Terra Amara) will soon be broadcast in Italy. Indeed, the broadcasting rights of this Turkish soap have been bought by Mediaset. This is what has just been announced.
This Turkish series, whose international name is bitter land, is currently broadcast in many countries. While the series is still being broadcast in Turkey where the original name is Bir Zamanlar Çukurova, the series is being broadcast in Spain under the name Tierra Amarga. It is also broadcast in several Latin American countries under the name “Züleyha”.
After the success of the series in Spain, under the title Tierra Amarga, it is the turn of the Italian public to discover the series. Mediaset Italia has acquired the broadcasting rights of the series Terra Amara (Bir Zamanlar Çukurova) for İtaly.
When will the series bitter lands be broadcast in Italy and on which channel?
The series Bitter Lands (Bir Zamanlar Çukurova) might be broadcast on the Italian channel Canal 5. The channel is currently broadcasting another Turkish series brave and beautiful, but the series will end soon. The last episode of brave and beautiful could be aired at the end of June. So it is possible that Canal 5 will start broadcasting the series Bitter Lands (Bir Zamanlar Çukurova) this summer.
There was a rumor that the romantic comedy Ada Masali was going to be a summer soap opera on channel 5, but finally the rumor has been denied. The Turkish series Ada Masali will not be the serie of the summer in Italy.
The Italian channel decided not to broadcast the romantic comedy Ada Masali, preferring the series Bitter Lands (Bir Zamanlar Çukurova). This Turkish series is a drama with a strong plot and a poignant story.
The news is not yet confirmed, but what is certain is that Mediaset has bought the broadcasting rights of the Turkish series Bitter Lands for Italy.
Bitter land (Terra Amara/Bir Zamanlar Çukurova) is still broadcast in Turkey on the ATV channel. Thanks to the ratings that the series gets every week, it has been able to stay on the screen. The series Bir Zamanlar Çukurova (Bitter Lands) has been airing since September 6, 2018. It has 4 seasons and 141 episodes. Each episode lasts between 140 and 150 minutes (the last episode of the series Bitter Lands will be broadcast on June 16, 2022 in Turkey).
In Turkey the series is broadcast once a week and the episodes last 140 minutes. On the other hand, in the Middle East countries and in Spain where the series Bitter Lands is already aired, the episodes are broadcasted several times a week and last between 30 and 40 minutes.
It is therefore likely that the series will be broadcast in the same way in Italy. Episodes every day from Monday to Friday with a duration of 30 to 40 minutes.
