Banijay UK Productions (branded as Banijay UK and formerly Endemol Shine UK Ltd) is a British production company. Since 2020, the company has been a subsidiary of Banijay.
Banijay UK incorporates a number of production brands, including Artists Studio, Darlow Smithson Productions, House of Tomorrow, Initial, Remarkable Television (previously Brighter Pictures and Cheetah Television), Tiger Aspect, Tigress Productions, Zeppotron, and their digital divisions: Endemol Games and Endemol Digital Studio.
With the advent of a joint venture with 21st Century Fox, additional companies under the new Endemol Shine UK umbrella include Dragonfly, Kudos, and Princess Productions (now defunct). The various television production brands specialize in a broad range of genres including entertainment, reality series, drama series, specialist factual, arts, live events, music entertainment, documentaries, youth shows, and comedy.
In the United Kingdom, Endemol is mostly known for producing both Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother from 2001–2018.
The UK branch of Endemol originated from Peter Bazalgette's sale of his television company Bazal to the Guardian Media Group (GMG) in 1990. In September 1998, Endemol acquired a 50% stake and the division was named GMG Endemol. Endemol bought the company outright from GMG in August 2000.
Since 2000, a series of corporate owners and public stock transactions has culminated in the joint venture of 2014 with 21st Century Fox's Shine Group to form the rebranded Endemol Shine UK, effective January 2015.
In January 2016, Endemol UK acquired the short-form and branded content production house Electric Robin and the digital talent management firm OP Talent.
On 30 June 2020, the European Commission approved Banijay's purchase of Endemol Shine UK's parent company Endemol Shine Group. The purchase was completed on July 3. Endemol Shine UK retained its name until March 2023, when it rebranded under the Banijay name.
The subsidiary which produced the show is listed in the bracket.
