Pearson TV placed on Fremantle

Name change reflects merger to create RTL Group

All divisions of the company will be rebranded immediately, including Pearson TV North America and Pearson TV Intl.

Fremantle was the name of an international gameshow producer acquired by Pearson TV during the 1990s.
