Endemol UK Ltd is one of the largest independent producers in the country. The UK group is part of Endemol, a worldwide network of production companies spanning 24 countries.

Endemol incorporates a number of production brands, including Remarkable Television (previously Brighter Pictures), Initial, Cheetah Television, Zeppotron, and their digital divisions: Endemol Gaming & Endemol Digital Studio. The four TV production brands specialise in a broad range of genres including factual entertainment, reality series, drama series, specialist factual, arts, live events, music entertainment, documentaries, youth shows, and comedy.

History[edit]

The company originated from Peter Bazalgette's sale of his television company to the Guardian Media Group (GMG) in 1990. In 1998, Endemol acquired a 50% stake and the division was named GMG Endemol. Endemol bought the company outright from GMG in 2000.[1]
