PlotEdit

Four managers of talent agency Ego, namely Kıraç (Barış Falay), Feris (Canan Ergüder), Çınar (Fatih Artman) and Peride (Ayşenil Şamlıoğlu), deal with difficult situations every day and defend their business visions. They skillfully combine art and business, but their private and professional lives sometimes come into conflict. Managers and their assistants take us behind the scenes of the wild world of famous players; where laughter, emotions, intrigue, disappointment and tears constantly collide. Dicle (Ahsen Eroğlu), who entered this wild world for the first time, says that I am also in the war, starting from the bottom in his struggle against personalities whose egos are higher than their height.

ShotsEdit

While the building where the imaginary talent agency EGO is located is 42 Plaza[a] in Istanbul - Maslak,[5] the house where the Dicle character stayed for the first 3 episodes is in the Kurtuluş district of Şişli district. Some of the interior shots took place at the Beykoz Shoe Factory.[6]
