A few years after flooding the Middle East with soap operas focused on their Ottoman past, Turkish TV is now turning to the rowdy, riveting present. This project examines the power that television studios have to manipulate, course, and reflect contemporary Turkish life as the country heads towards prime ministerial elections in 2015.
