Herr P, the production company founded and headed by national TV presenter and producer Jörg Pilawa, has been acquired by Endemol’s German operation for a majority stake.

As part of the acquisition, the two companies will pool creative and production resources to develop and produce entertainment formats for both the German and international markets.

Endemol Germany’s managing director Marcus Wolter will join Pilawa as joint managing director of Herr P.

Pilawa and Endemol Germany have a track record of working together with Pilawa coproducing and presenting The Money DropRette die Million! for ZDF. Some of Pilawa’s other work includes developing and producing TV formats in Germany, such as Pilawas großes Geschichts-Quiz’ (Pilawa’s big history quiz) and ‘Kennen Sie Deutschland?’ (How well do you know Germany?).

Further projects are in development and will be announced at a later date.
