French group Banijay Entertainment, founded by Endemol France’s former boss Stphane Courbit, has announced the acquisition of UK independent production company Zig Zag Productions.
Based in London and Los Angeles, Zig Zag was created in 1999 by Danny Fenton and Kevin Utton, and has already produced more than 400 hours of programmes. Favorite genres include factual entertainment, docusoap, game shows and reality with formats such as Relentless (Channel 4), The Truth Behind... (National Geographic Channel), Super Agents (BBC) and BodyShock (Channel 4).
Besides Zig Zag’s International Rights Division and post production-facilities, Banijay also acquires subsidiary HooHah - a digital creative agency specialising in short form and branded entertainment content.
Since its creation in 2008, Banijay has already taken majority stakes in eight European companies including French indies like Air Prod, but also Brainpool in Germany, Nordisk in Scandinavia, Cuarzo in Spain. Last year, it has also set up joint-venture Angel City Factory in the US.
