ABS-CBN Corp. is making its foray into Turkey, after it signed a deal with a Turkish content production company for the adaptation of its crime drama Hanggang Saan.

In a statement, the multimedia giant said the show, to be re-titled as A Mother’s Guilt, will be a co-production of Limon Yapim and ABS-CBN. It will air on the country’s top free TV channel Fox Turkey.

“The local adaptation of Hanggang Saan in Turkey is another proof that Filipino stories have a global audience because our tradition of storytelling is always anchored on the universal theme of love for family. We are excited for viewers in Turkey to see it,” Laarni Yu, ABS-CBN International Distribution for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) sales head, said.

ABS-CBN and Limon Yapim signed the contract during the MIPTV International Market for Content Development and Distribution, in Cannes, France.

Limon Yapim is described as a “reputable production company” with top-rating TV series and films.

ABS-CBN programs are aired in 50 territories all over the world.

Hanggang Saan is the second Philippine TV drama that has been adapted for another country. The first was Pangako Sa’yo (The Promise), which was localized by Cambodian Television Network (CTN) in 2012.
