RTL, Telefonica said to be in new talks

Endemol, Pearson could link up

CANNES — RTL Group, the pan-European broadcasting giant, is reported to have renewed talks with Dutch TV production heavyweight Endemol Entertainment and its Spanish parent Telefonica Media over a possible production link-up.

New rumors have revived speculation that RTL is eyeing Endemol as a potential partner to expand the group’s production activities.

RTL only recently begun bolstering the production side of its business, most notably through its merger with the U.K.’s Pearson Television.

Combining Endemol with Pearson would be of great value to RTL.

RTL and Telefonica Media – the production subsid of telco Telefonica – are already close allies in Spain and the Spanish speaking world.
