The crime suspense drama “A Mother's Guilt,” will soon hook viewers in Turkey as ABS-CBN landed its first format adaptation deal of the hit series with leading Turkey content production company, Limon Yapim, and set to air in one of the country’s most watched free TV channels, FOX Turkey.

“A Mother’s Guilt", is a co-production with ABS-CBN and Limon Yapim, and is set to begin filming within the second quarter of 2019. The format buy also marks ABS-CBN’s first presence in Turkey as the media and entertainment company ramps up its global expansion. 

ABS-CBN programs are currently present in over 50 territories all over the world, selling over 50,000 hours of content worldwide. 

“The local adaptation of ‘A Mother's Guilt’ 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 EMEA sales head said. 

Talented Turkish actors and actresses are being eyed to portray the characters of the show such as Sonya (Sylvia Sanchez) and Paco (Arjo Atayde). 

The contract signing of ABS-CBN and Limon Yapim took place in Cannes, France during MIPTV, an international event dedicated to content and development and distribution. Limon Yapim is a reputable production company in Turkey with a roster of top-rating TV series and films. 

During its run on Philippine TV, “A Mother's Guilt” garnered a strong reception, with audiences applauding the inventive narrative, ode to women empowerment, and incredible performances from the cast.
