NEVER IN FRONT OF THE KIDS (TV SERIE 2003-?)
NEVER IN FRONT OF THE KIDS! is not just another TV show in Turkey, it’s a TV phenomena now! It started in 2001 in a minor TV channel, but turned to the greatest TV blockbuster ever in Turkey in a few months. Even its re-runs broke every rating record on Turkish TVs and the show became a tremendous success for the coming years. In 2004, the show had a break due to some casting problems, but when it restarted in 2010 it was still one of the bests on Turkish TVs.
NEVER IN FRONT OF THE KIDS! is about very little issues of a family in real life. Making ends meet at the end of the month, bringing up children, man-and-wife problems, business lives, friends, neighbors etc… Our show is as funny and as dramatic as the real life. There is a balance of semi-real life and semi-drama. Every spectator will say “Oh, that’s my father!”, “That’s my wife!” or “That’s my child!” as they watch the characters in this show. The show is about the marriage of a “real” man with an “ideal” woman. The show is told through the eyes of the male lead and he is simply in dispute with everything and everyone.
THOSE IN THE BACK ROW (TV SERIE 2007-2011)
This TV drama is about the growing adventures of a group of students at a high school in a poor district of Istanbul.

The school’s students can hardly go on to colleges, but there are still some young hearts who want to break the unlucky spell over their lives and there are families who struggle for the better days together with them…
OUR LESSON: ATATURK (MOVIE 2009)

A group of students are trying to prepare a paper about the recent history of Turkey, but they realize that they don’t really know too much about their own history. Grandpa of one of the students is a well-known historian ad he starts telling the young about the history from the day Mustafa Kemal Ataturk was born and he tells all about the War of Independence of the Turks to found the Republic of Turkey…
