The co-creators of game shows The Weakest Link and Who Wants to be a Millionaire are joining forces.

Fintan Coyle (pictured), co-devisor of The Weakest Link, has signed a creative agreement with company Boxatricks, a format company launched last month by Who Wants to be a Millionaire? co-creators Michael Whitehill and David Briggs.

Under the deal, Coyle will work with Boxatricks to create formats for the international market and co-develop some existing formats.

“Fintan has one of the most creative brains in the industry and we are delighted to be working with him in this way,” said Boxatricks creative director Colman Hutchinson in a statement. “Together, we are aiming to fast-track the development of a range of formats with global appeal.”

“I am really looking forward to working with this creative team to craft and execute market-leading formats,” added Coyle.

Launched in September, Boxatricks is looking to co-develop new game show and factual entertainment format ideas with outside production partners.
