The highly awaited Turkish thriller drama series ‘As the Crow Flies’ is releasing globally by June 3, 2022 on Netflix at 3:01 am EST.

What is ‘As the Crow Flies’ all about?

The story revolves around the power struggle and friction between intern Asli Tuna and a well-known news anchor Lale Kiran who are working together on the same news channel. The emphasis will solely be on how Asli tries to prove her credibility in the organization and pulls out all stops which could be fair or unfair to bring down her former idol and current nemesis Kiran.

The official synopsis reads, “A young fan maneuvers her way into a seasoned anchor's newsroom but soon confronts the dark side of ambition, envy and the desire to be seen”.

“While Gen X tries to keep up with adapting to the new world, social media, new ways of business, they still are not aware of the bigger picture. The gap and the differences between both generations are undeniably strong. In this backdrop, we'll follow Asli's story who tries to fly as the crow instead of relying on the merit of hard-work to be able to climb the stairs. The series will question whether Asli can win or lose with the methods of the new world, in order to reach the summit and be the most reputable person on the table”.
