New historical Turkish drama by Ertugrul writer to hit screens

If you're a fan of historical dramas such as Magnificent Century or Resurrection: Ertugrul, you won’t have to wait too long to feast your eyes and ears on Turkey’s next big hit.

One of the creative members in the writers’ guild of the globally-popular Turkish drama “Resurrection: Ertugrul,” Serdar Özönalan, has penned a new history-based drama that will be broadcasted on state television TRT 1, reported Yeni Safak.

Here is the teaser of new drama series.

The TV show titled "Nizam-ı Alem" --which literally means “world order” -- is set to cover the 300-year period of the Anatolian Seljuks, from the 11th century through the 13th century.

Akli Film, the Turkish production company, has officially inked a deal with TRT for show’s pre-production, according to reports.

Nizam-ı Alem is expected to garner great success just like Kuruluş Osman (The Ottoman), the sequel of Resurrection: Ertuğrul.

Often described as the Turkish Game of Thrones, the series is woven around 13th century Anatolia and tells the story prior to the establishment of the Ottoman Empire. It illustrates the struggle of Ertugrul Gazi, father of the empire's founder.
