FremantleMedia UK, formerly independent production company talkbackTHAMES, is the UK production arm of FremantleMedia, the global production and content business of the RTL Group, Europe’s largest television and radio company.
It was formed in January 2012 when the company was restructured into a portfolio of labels: Boundless, Newman Street, Retort, Talkback and Thames. Then, in 2014, Euston Films was relaunched within FMUK. Each label is managed by a creative leader.
The labels are supported by FremantleMedia UK, led by interim CEO and Managing Director of Thames, Richard Holloway. The structure has been designed to give the company’s market leading talent greater creative freedom and autonomy in order to deliver the best programmes for customers.
Across the group, the labels provide award winning programming for all major terrestrial, digital channels and digital outlets. With an unparalleled range of programming including: The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Celebrity Juice, Through the Keyhole, Virtually Famous, Hard Sun, Take Me Out, Sarah Beeny’s Four Rooms, Grand Designs, Great British Railway Journeys, QI, Birds of a Feather, Count Arthur Strong, Escape to the Country and The Keith and Paddy Picture Show – the Group has aired over 360 hours of programming on terrestrial TV in the past 12 months alone.
