FremantleMedia Buys Dutch Factual Programming Company No Pictures Please

FremantleMedia has acquired a 75% stake in Dutch business No Pictures Please, the factual programming company owned by popular TV host/producer Ewout Genemans.

The No Pictures Please deal, brokered by Blue Circle CEO Georgette Schlick, is the latest in a number of recent acquisitions by FremantleMedia. The company acquired Wildside (Italy), Fontaram (France) and Corona Pictures (UK).

FremantleMedia’s entertainment and scripted businesses in the Netherlands already include Blue Circle and FourOne.Media.

No Pictures Please is best known for De Roze Wildernis (Fathers Pride), a format about gay sons and their fathers; Super Fans: Mijn idool is mijn leven (Super Fans: My idol is my life), which follows fans as they try to get closer to their idols; and From Russia With Love, a look at the men who travel to the former Eastern bloc to find love.

“Ewout has been on Dutch screens for more than ten years and has developed a very keen eye for what audiences want,” said Schlick.

Genemans added, “Being a part of Blue Circle and ultimately FremantleMedia presents a great opportunity to work with a fantastic Dutch operation as well as a globally established network of some of the best creative minds in television.”
