Pre-BB: Endemol in talks to merge with Fox

Big Brother format owners, Endemol, are in talks to merge with Fox

The creators of the Big Brother format, Endemol, are reportedly in talks to merge with Fox, a deal that would see Endemol merge with Shine Group and Core Media Group.

Fox and Apollo said in a statement they’ve reached a “preliminary agreement” to jointly run the company, but also said “no assurances” that the deal will be completed.

This comes just a few weeks after Viacom purchased Channel 5 in a deal worth £450 Million from the current owner Richard Desmond – who previously asked for £700 Million for the broadcaster.
