Kurtlar Vadisi - The Valley of the Wolves was a Turkish television drama which originally aired on Show TV. After discontinuation from Show TV, the show moved to Kanal D, and then to ATV for its final season.

The show focuses on Agent Polat Alemdar, an undercover operative who joins the Mafia and becomes the partner of a Mafia gunman, Süleyman Çakır, after a plastic surgery operation. The show makes direct and indirect references to Turkish politics and to political history from the viewpoint of an undercover agent.

Kurtlar Vadisi became the most successful TV show in Turkey[citation needed] (ratings reached more than 50%). Multiple successful feature films were made based upon the show, including Valley of the Wolves: Iraq, Valley of the Wolves: Gladio and Valley of the Wolves: Palestine City, Palestine.
