FremantleMedia-owned UFA, a production group in Germany, has restructured its subsidiaries, which includes documentary and reality outfit UFA Entertainment, to streamline under three divisions.

The production companies within the group – UFA Entertainment; drama and telenova prodco Grundy UFA; fiction prodcos UFA Fernsehproduktion, teamWorx and Phoenix-Film; variety, game and dating prodco Grundy Light Entertainment; and UFA Cinema – originally worked individually, and will now pool its talent and resources on entertainment, daily drama and fiction.

Each production subsidiary will continue to exist, but will now work together as opposed to competing with each other. Grundy Light Entertainment is behind the local versions of Idol and Farmer Wants a Wife in Germany.
