Endemol, the Netherlands-based television production giant behind CBS’ “Big Brother” and NBC’s “Fear Factor,” has acquired a majority stake in the Israeli production company Kuperman.
Co-owner Elad Kuperman has been named CEO of the new venture.
“We couldn’t ask for a stronger partner than Endemol,” said Kuperman in a release this morning. “Joining forces will provide us with the expertise, global network and resources to create and exploit world class content whilst also allowing us access to one of the industry’s largest and most valuable portfolios of entertainment IP. Our plan is to pursue significant expansion together.”
