Karadağlar is a Turkish television drama loosely based on the novel The Brothers Karamazov[3] by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It airs on Show TV every week on Monday evenings at 20:00 local time, and is repeated on Wednesdays at 23:00, as well as on Sundays at 16:45.


Karadağlar is set in the 1930s,[1] when Turkey was suffering the effects of the Great Depression,[4] and it focuses on the generally strained relationships of the landowner, Halit Karadağ, with his sons, as well as the relationships between his sons. Set in the fictional village of Payidar, the series also shows the tensions that exist between the area's rich landowners and poor villagers.[5]
