'Hekimoglu' will premiere in the US on Kanal D Drama via Xfinity and Verizon FiOS and also on its streaming app.
Kanal D Drama will release medical drama Hekimoglu on November 16, to broaden its bouquet of premieres of Turkish series fully dubbed into Spanish for the US Hispanic audience.
The series will release with an exclusive presentation of the show’s virtual premiere on Facebook on Monday, November 15 at 9:00 PM Eastern/6:00 PM Pacific.
Francheska León de la Barra, Marketing Director for Kanal D Drama in the US and LatAm, said: “Audiences have always had a thing for medical dramas on television for decades, and now more than ever in a post-pandemic era. In this series, the main character inspired by the award-winning medical drama Dr House, plays a sarcastic and antisocial doctor. Dr Hekimoglu, while unlikeable, is a genius, and he develops a great reputation for solving the most perplexing medical cases. I’m sure this captivating drama will resonate with the Hispanic audience from the first episode.”
Hekimoglu is an adaptation of the US series House, M.D. The Turkish version features Timuçin Esen (Cruzando Mares) in the lead role of Dr Ateş Hekimoglu, a renowned physician in infectious diseases and nephrology. Each episode of the series follows this exceptional doctor, with his somewhat gruff and antisocial character, who is as witty as he is arrogant, leading a team of young doctors, who do everything possible to help their patients and solve the puzzling medical cases that arrive at the hospital.
It will air Monday through Friday at 8:20 PM Eastern/ 5:20 PM Pacific via Xfinity and Verizon FiOS (channel 1586), and it will also be available for streaming via Kanal D Drama’s app.
Kanal D Drama is the first 24/7 channel that presents Turkish dramas in Spanish. It is owned by Kanal D International Networks and currently reaches 14 countries on three continents.
