Is Netflix's Tailor Based on a True Story?

Netflix's 'Tailor' is a Turkish mystery drama series created by Onur Güvenatam and directed by Cem Karcı. It is about the famous tailor Peyami Dokumacı, who tries to protect a dark secret from his past. However, Peyami's life is turned upside down when he unintentionally falls in love with Esvet, a young woman with secrets of her own. Given the show's exploration of complex interpersonal relationships and its study of human behavior, viewers must wonder if it's based on real events. If you're wondering if Tailor was inspired by a true story, here's everything you need to know!

Is The Tailor A True Story?

'The Tailor' is partially based on a true story. The television series comes from a story by the writer Gülseren Budaıcıoğlu. It was adapted to the screenplay by screenwriters Rana Mamatlıoğlu and Bekir Baran Sıtkı. Director Cem Karcı directed the project and Onur Güvenatam is cited as the creator of the series. Therefore, it is safe to say that the creative quartet is responsible for shaping the television series. However, the show is probably not a direct representation of real events, as several sources have claimed.

Gülseren Budaıcıoğlu created the main story of the series. Budayicioglu is a famous Turkish writer and television writer. However, she started her career as a psychiatrist before becoming a television presenter and later publishing her own novels. Budaıcıoğlu's novels such as 'Inside the Medallion', 'The Girl in the Pine' and 'Back to Life' have been the source of many television programs. Some sources claimed that Terzi was an adaptation of the author's third published book, Hayata Dön. The book, first published in 2011, describes the traumatic events of a young girl named Ala.

It also includes several anecdotes and stories that the author uses to shape the narrative. However, 'The Tailor' does not appear to be a direct adaptation of the book as its narration differs from Ala's story. Instead, the show is likely inspired by some of Budaıcıoğlu's other interactions with his patients. Budaıcıoğlu also mentioned other series adaptations in an interview he gave in 2023. The author explained that he was inspired by real people he interacted with. However, Budaıcıoğlu also explained that he avoids showing real people and their lives as they are in order to protect their identities. He still manages to create realistic characters.

Budaıcıoğlu publishes a blog for the Hürriyet website. Budaıcıoğlu shares his experiences as a psychiatrist through his blog and raises awareness about mental health. He also shares his thoughts on letters written to him by people with mental health problems. It is likely that one of these letters was the primary inspiration for the television series. However, as mentioned above, Budaıcıoğlu constructs certain people and events, that is, 'The Tailor' is a fictional story.

'The Tailor' explores the traumatic past of the protagonist Peyami Dokumacı, who struggles with his father's mental health problems. Meanwhile, Esvet is a young girl who was forced into marriage by her family to an abusive partner. Thus, the series explores the relationship between the physiological effects of parents' actions on their children. Next, the series explores taboo topics and complex relationships that resonate emotionally with viewers.

After all, 'The Tailor' is a television series that is deeply interested in exploring the psychological states of its characters. These characters may or may not be inspired by real people, but due to Budaıcıoğlu's understanding of human nature, they appear to depict realistic emotions. It explores complex themes such as domestic abuse, mental health, marriage, adoption, and parenting. So, despite the heavily dramatized and convoluted narrative, the series retains an image of realism.
