BBC Worldwide, the main commercial arm of the U.K. pubcaster, wasted no time in acting on its commitment to new joint ventures. The company today announced the formation of Me, Myself and Someone Else GmbH, the offspring of a deal between Worldwide and German prodco Me, Myself and Eye.
The joint venture company will have the chance to further exploit the BBC’s Top of the Pops brand across all media throughout Germany, but MME will continue to produce the German version of the popular BBC chart show for RTL. The potential also exists for MMSE to manage other core music properties. In addition to music programs, MME produces reality TV, documentaries and fiction shows.
BBC WorldWide holds 49% of MMSE, while MME retains 51%.
