Hotsauce TV, the production shingle created by popular British TV presenter Jonathan Ross, has signed an exclusive development deal with Endemol UK to create and produce entertainment formats for the UK and international markets. Endemol will also distribute the programs and formats developed via the deal globally. Ross, the highest-paid TV presenter in the UK after signing a contract worth £18 million over three years in 2006, announced he was leaving the BBC after 13 years this past January. Ross will be presenting a new talk show on ITV in the fall of 2011 which isn’t connected to the Endemol deal, is hosting a countdown of The 100 Greatest Toys for Channel 4 over the holiday season and is said to be working on an astronomy project with the Beeb.
