Kenan Imirzalıoğlu premieres this week his new series, 'Alef'
The protagonist of Ezel was combining the recording of the novel with his new challenge as presenter at the head of the television contest Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

While programs and filming in Turkey are paralyzed by the coronavirus crisis, some actors, such as the successful Kenan Imirzalıoğlu, are still lucky enough to be able to launch their projects. The protagonist of Ezel was recording his new series, Alef, during the last quarter of 2019, before the virus paralysis hit almost all countries. On Friday April 10, it premieres on the digital platforms Blu TV and Fx.


During those months Imirzalıoğlu was combining the filming of the novel, where he works together with another renowned Turkish actor, Berkay Ates (Cenzig in Mother), with the presentation of the popular television contest Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. For several months it caused a sensation among the public in front of the program. Now the actor will continue in force for his followers thanks to his new soap opera on air.


A mystical and suspense story

Alef is a suspense and mystical production, one of the few of this genre made in Turkey, although recently Netflix produced and aired another original from that country with similar overtones, Atiye, starring Beren Saat. Alef's story revolves around two policemen: Kemal (Kenan Imirzalıoğlu), a young and ambitious detective, and Settar (Ahmet Mümtaz Taylan), more veteran and experienced. Throughout just 8 episodes, the duo investigates several murders of a serial killer, while secrets of Ottoman and Islamic history emerge.

The discovery of a murdered body in the Bosporus is the beginning of the plot, which will bring to the scene a university student, Yasan, played by the young film and television actress Melisa Sözen. He faces the detectives and ends up revealing a secret of the empire's history.

The word aleph indicates the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and is shown with the symbol, א, which appears on the series poster. Its numerical value is 1 and it has no sound.

This series has meant the return of Kenan Imirzalıoğlua the small screen, after in 2018 he made his latest novel, Fatih Sultan Mehmed. The handsome 45-year-old actor had triumphed in 2009 with Ezel, alongside Cansu Dere. With a long history and great recognition in his country, Kenan is also very focused on his personal life, next to the famous actress Sinem Kobal, with whom he has been married for three years and they form one of the strongest couples in the Turkish interpretive world.
