Endemol has secured a three-year development and distribution deal with UK producer Amber Television.
This will see Endemol provide development funding and deficit financing for a new slate of Amber-produced shows in exchange for first-look distribution rights.
Amber is planning to create a slate of scripted series for the UK, US and international TV markets that Endemol Worldwide Distribution will take to the global market.
Amber is behind films such as the recently-released Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, and Molly Moon and the Incredible Book of Hypnotism.
The opportunity to work with the Endemol team gives us access to the best television talent in the world,” said Amber Illen Maisel and Lawrence Elman in a statement. ‘”To be brought into the Endemol family fold gives our vast content access to multi platforms with the strongest company in the business in the evolving world of television.”
