Joint-Venture between BRAINPOOL and Banijay Entertainment
The international media group Banijay Entertainment headquartered in Paris is acquiring a 50% stake in BRAINPOOL.
Banijay Entertainment was founded in 2008 by TV producer and long-standing Endemol France CEO, Stéphane Courbit, with the aim of developing an international network of independent production companies. As one of Germany's largest production companies, BRAINPOOL is now joining the ranks of one Russian, one Spanish and four French production companies in the Banijay Entertainment network.
No changes are to take place in BRAINPOOL's executive management: Jörg Grabosch, Ralf Günther and Dr. Andreas Scheuermann will continue to represent the company as independent authorized managing directors.
Jörg Grabosch comments, "As a creative production company, Brainpool has always valued developing outstanding artists and formats very highly. Being part of the international Banijay network of creative producers opens up an exciting international outlook: producing top-of-the-line entertainment that can have worldwide presence and be accomplished in a direct way."
