Fremantle, the production company behind Fox’s ‘American Idol’ and the upcoming ‘The X Factor’ as well as NBC’s ‘America’s Got Talent,’ has signed a three-year agreement with the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.

The new deal will cover programs made for U.S. broadcast and cable networks.

‘This new enhanced agreement underlines our commitment to working with Fremantle Media North America on some of the biggest programming brands on television,’ said Matthew D. Loeb, international president of IATSE.

Previously, IATSE had agreements with some individual Fremantle shows but not the entire company.
