    Turkish television drama (Turkish: televizyon dizileri) is a genre of television serial dramas, melodramas, comedy dramas, romantic dramas, thriller dramas, or action dramas produced in and broadcast from Turkey.

Turkey is the world's fastest growing television series exporter and has currently overtaken both Mexico and Brazil as the world's second highest television series exporter after the United States. Turkish television dramas are among the world's lengthiest, ranging between 120 and 150 minutes per episode.

    The Turkish Radio and Television Corporation, also known as TRT (Turkish: Türkiye Radyo ve Televizyon Kurumu), is the national public broadcaster of Turkey and was founded in 1964. Around 70% of TRT's funding comes from a tax levied on electricity bills and a license tax on television and radio receivers. As these are hypothecated taxes, as opposed to the money coming from general government funds, the principle is similar to that of the television licence levied in a number of other countries, such as the BBC in the United Kingdom. The rest of TRT's funding comes from government grants (around 20%), with the final 10% coming from advertising.

  • 140journos Turkish media publisher

    140journos is a crowdsourced news outlet covering news related to Turkey. It was started as a citizen journalism and photography project in 2012 by Engin Onder, who had become disenchanted with Turkish media after military attacks on the PKK in 2011 killed many civilians. 140journos has become a grassroots organization that regularly pulls content from more than 250 volunteers across Turkey. Onder gained attention with 140journos after tweeting from inside the courtroom during a controversial trial, and the outlet had a breakthrough of sorts during the Gezi Park protests. The visual section of 140journos published Fashionista (2017), "documenting the daily fashion in the different neighborhoods of Istanbul". One of the photographers it represents, Çağdaş Erdoğan, stood trial in February 2018 on charges of supporting the PKK, a trial denounced as an attack on the freedom of the press in Turkey.
