LANA TV, the Iraqi general-entertainment TV channel, is exclusively broadcasting Kacak, a hit series from Turkey, for the first time in the region, starting today.
Kacak, produced and directed by Surec Films, has been acclaimed as one of Turkey’s top series of 2014.
The drama focuses on the story of a family man who is dragged back into a war with old Mafia adversaries. The show’s protagonist, Serhat (played by Gürkan Uygun) is a former policeman who puts away the son of a notoriously cruel Mafia Don and is forced to change his identity and live out the rest of his days in a small village.
Gürkan Uygun is known for his famous role as Memati in the Turkish action series, Valley of the Wolves: Iraq (2006), and also for Gallipoli: End of the Road (2013) and Kurtlar Vadisi: Pusu (2007).
Kacak has been a smashing success for ATV in Turkey, attracting 15% of audience share on average, and has already been slated for a second season.
