Eccho Rights adds "Heart & Soul" and "Water Mirror" from SIC

Eccho Rights has signed an exclusive worldwide representation agreement with Portugal’s leading broadcaster, SIC, including the global distribution of SP Televisão’s series "Heart & Soul" and "Water Mirror".

‘Portuguese TV dramas are very powerful productions with a strong global appeal. We are very honoured to represent SIC as they produce some of the country’s most successful long running series as the #1 channel in the country’. said Fredrik af Malmborg, MD at Eccho Rights.
‘International sales is becoming increasingly important in drama production, and series from Portugal have a long tradition of success, with multiple international awards and recognitions in recent years. We are impressed by the global organisation of Eccho Rights and this co-operation is a logical step to increase our international presence’, added Cristina Vaz Tomé, Chief Revenue Officer at Impresa.
Heart & Soul (+300x’45) and Water Mirror (327x’45) will be launched at MIPCOM in Cannes this October. The first one was nominated in three categories at last month's Seoul International Drama Awards (Best Serial Drama, Best Screenwriter - Serial Drama, Best Actress - Serial Drama). Earlier this year, the series picked up an award at the 20th World Media Festival in Hamburg, and was nominated for the Rockie Awards at the 40th Banff World Media Festival.
Second one has been nominated for a host of international drama awards, including Seoul International Drama Awards, Banff, and the New York Festivals TV & Film awards.
