The Turkish detective “A universally compelling crime thriller set against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities in the world” Clemens said that Barbara Nadel’s novels come to life in this series.
It will also be released in countries where Paramount Plus is not available.
The Turkish Detective is published on the Paramount+ platform, which is currently only active in a few countries. In other countries it is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution. If Paramount Plus does not come to the Turkish market by 2023, we will have to wait for the series to be released on a digital channel in our country.
A Paramount spokesperson told ShiftDelete.Net “We have no plans to launch the Paramount+ service in Turkey yet.” used the phrase.
Incidentally, that’s not what the Paramount+ press release says, but it does claim that famed director David Fincher will also be in the series. We don’t know if it’s safe as this information doesn’t come from official sources.
