“Female audiences are becoming more demanding and sophisticated when it comes to choosing a series that they want to get hooked on. They demand quality productions with emotional impact and substance. I’m convinced that “La Trampa del Amor” will resonate with the female audience in the U.S., because they are asking for stories like these, which masterfully combine humor and romance, essential elements that make a great difference these days,” said Francheska León de la Barra, Marketing Manager of Kanal D Drama in the U.S. and LatAm.
Turkish actor and model Çağlar Ertuğrul (Kerem), and the dazzling Burcu Özberk (Ayşe) star in Kanal D Drama’s new romantic comedy, which will captivate the Spanish-speaking audience in the U.S., right from the first episode. The series tells the story of Ayşe, a humble young woman who works at a textile factory whose family includes two controlling older brothers. She dreams of going back to university and marrying her lifelong boyfriend Berk. Kerem, is part one of the wealthiest families in istanbul who happen to own the textile factory where Ayşe works. He is smart and handsome, but also a playboy who is always struggling for his father’s approval. After Ayşe catches her boyfriend betraying her, she comes up with a plan to save her from an arranged marriage by trapping Kerem into marrying her. Skeptic at first, Kerem accepts to be part of Ayse’s plan and their lives are bound to take a radical turn.
It should be noted that the stellar performance of Çağlar Ertuğrul (Kerem) in this series won him an award last year as best romantic actor in the Golden Butterfly Awards, which annually recognize the best Turkish TV productions. “La Trampa de Amor” (Afili Aşk) was produced by Arc Film for Kanal D in 2019.
