MIPTV: FremantleMedia Pacts with ‘Deal or No Deal’ Creator Dick De Rijk

CANNES — FremantleMedia, whose formats include “Idols,” “The X Factor” and “Got Talent,” has inked an exclusive multi-year co-development deal with Dick De Rijk, the creator of “Deal or No Deal.”

De Rijk developed several hit formats during his exclusive partnerships with John de Mol, Endemol and Red Arrow Intl. “Deal or No Deal” has been on air in more than 150 countries. Other formats include “Set for Life,” “Show Me the Money” and “You Deserve It.”

De Rijk, who is based in Hilversum, the Netherlands, will work with Rob Clark, FremantleMedia’s director of global entertainment development, to create the next generation of game and entertainment formats.

Clark said: “Dick is an ideas man, with a fantastic understanding of the global TV market, and you can see from the formats that he’s developed, that he thinks creatively and strategically. I hope that alongside our global network of production companies, we can together build the next global entertainment TV franchise.”

De Rijk said: “A distributing partner of this size, both creatively and geographically, offers every opportunity to create some new fireworks in the television landscape. Working closely with Rob is a privilege, and will be great fun.”
