John de Mol Expands Talpa Media in Germany with Axel Springer Deal

John de Mol has cut a deal with German media giant Axel Springer to expand the reach of his Talpa Media in Germany.

De Mol (pictured) will acquire 49.9% of Schwartzkopff TV, a production subsidiary of Axel Springer that will be renamed Talpa Germany. Schwartztkopff has already been in business with Talpa for several years, co-producing Teutonic versions of the company’s “Voice” competition show franchise. Talpa’s “Utopia” is set to launch in Germany next year.

Talpa, based in the Netherlands, has been on a global expansion push in the past few months. It has launched outposts in the U.K., Nordic region and Italy.

“Schwartzkopff TV has been our partner in the German market from the very beginning. The fact that we work together so well is an important factor in the success of the Talpa formats in Germany. I’m therefore very pleased with this strong confirmation of our partnership, which fits into Talpa’s philosophy.”
