“We’ve designed this deal as the template for the future of our North American business,” said Jonny Slow, CEO of Zodiak Americas. “It allows producers like Jeff to remain independent and maintain a distinctive voice while simultaneously providing them with a highly motivated international partner and the global infrastructure necessary to drive a hit show.”
Apploff and Zodiak already share a history, since Apploff created and produced almost 150 hours of RDF/Zodiak gameshow “Don’t Forget the Lyrics.”
Apploff Entertainment will now be based in Zodiak’s Santa Monica office. Shingle will also now have access to Zodiak’s local development teams in over 20 countries around the world as a part of the deal.
