Mehmet Bozdağ, the screenwriter and producer of the famous Turkish series, Resurrection Ertuğrul, announced that he has almost completed the shooting of his new historical TV series. As per Bozdağ, the new show will be broadcast in Turkey by January 2021.

The new Turkish series will follow the life of Jalal al-Din Khwarazmshah, the ruler of the Khwarazmian Empire, who initiated a tragic but united struggle against the Mongol invasion.

After failed attempts by Khwarazmshah to counter the Mongol invasion that began in the Central Asian steppes, Jalal al-Din, the empire’s last ruler, took charge. He put dynastic fights between Seljuks and Khwarazmians aside and tried to establish a united front to stop the Mongols.

He successfully defeated the seemingly invincible Mongol army in 1221 but could not sustain the invasion and fled to Anatolia. Jalal al-Din Khwarazmshah was defeated by Ala al-Din Kayqubad, the sultan of the Anatolian Seljuks. However, later it was revealed that he was killed in Anatolia by the nomad Zazas.

Bozdağ expressed:

Thanks to my previous worldwide hit project, Resurrection Ertuğrul, there was already a great demand for the Jalal al-Din Khwarazmshah series.

While speaking to a media outlet at the premiere of the series in Uzbekistan, Bozdağ said:

The new series will create a significant impact worldwide.

Talking about the new series, Bozdağ added:

We began the project two years ago with the Uzbekistan government’s request and have already shot 13 episodes. We tried to offer a new perspective in terms of “cinema language”. The series has an original concept and presents Uzbek culture, geography, and the Transoxianan region’s history.
