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.


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.
