Can Yaman, who has been continuing his career in Italy for a while, was expected to return to Turkey for the shooting of the series, which will meet with the audience on Disney Plus. However, it has become clear that the player, who now lives entirely in Italy, will not come to Turkey.
The shooting of “El Turco”, which tells a half-fiction, half-truth story, will take place in Italy and Croatia. The series is about settling in Moena village in Italy after the 2nd Siege of Vienna and liberating the village from the feudal lords.
In Orhan Yeniaras’ historical fiction novel “El Turco”, Ottoman Intelligence Officer Balaban Ağa, who was found injured by the Moena people during the 2nd Vienna Siege, settled in this village and a successful peasant uprising is organized against the feudal lords, who tied the people to tribute.
Kerem Deren is penning the series to be directed by Uluç Bayraktar.
