FremantleMedia (doing business as Fremantle) is a British-based media conglomerate company founded on August 20, 2001, as a merger of Pearson Television and CLT-UFA; the companies merged to become "RTL Group" and by renaming the production arm to FremantleMedia, who currently owns the All American, Mark Goodson, and Reg Grundy libraries, among other formats.

In 2003, FremantleMedia acquired Australian production company Crackerjack Productions, who merged with Grundy Television to form "FremantleMedia Australia".

On September 7, 2018, the company changed its onscreen name to simply "Fremantle", though FremantleMedia remains its legal name. Today, Fremantle is a division of the RTL Group, and is 90% owned by German media conglomerate Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA, which is 80.9% owned by the Bertelsmann Foundation and 19.1% owned by the Mohn Family.


Logo (January 31, 2002-)

Visuals: On a royal blue background, white paint bubbles out in the center, then pulls back and to the right as the paint orbits around to form a stylized atom design. The text "FREMANTLEMEDIA", in Futura font with different font weights, blurs in to the left of the atom. Afterwards, four white paint drops appear around the atom.


  • On North American-produced shows, the words "NORTH AMERICA", in a non-bold Futura typeface, appear right under "FREMANTLEMEDIA" next to the bubble.
  • For Australia, the word "AUSTRALIA" would appear under the name.
  • For Poland, "POLSKA" would appear under the name in a basic font (either Arial or Helvetica).
  • Starting in 2005, the logo was remade in HD, and a 5th paint drop is also added.
  • In some cases, the paint drops randomly appear.
  • On old Familiada episodes, a paint stroke appears, until the show fades. Also after it gets done, it crossfades into the Astro logo.
  • On the North America variant, the short version sometimes fades in.
  • The text "Distributed by" appears above the name for distribution of shows from the UK.
  • The text "Distributed by FREMANTLE INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION" appears underneath the logo for global distribution since 2003.
    • On some international airings of older episodes of Neighbours, the AUSTRALIA variant at the end appears as normal, but a few seconds after, the AUSTRALIA text fades out and another text "Distributed by FREMANTLE INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION" fades in.
  • For other shows that they produced or distributed globally such as MTV's Eye Candy, either the text Enterprises or International fades in.
  • A 16:9 stretched to 4:3 variant of the "International" logo also exists, which is seen at the end of the French dub of the live-action series of Mr. Bean.
  • A 16:9 stretched to 4:3 variant of the "Enterprises" logo also exists, which was seen at the end of a December 9, 2022 airing of S01E29 of Dale's Supermarket Sweep on Challenge, following the 1990 A Central Production for ITV endcap.
  • An early variant has been spotted with a white background, black text, a blue atom, and no animation on the final season of Bruce's Price is Right, an early 2000s reissue print of a 1996 episode of Neighbours (following the mid-1996 production variant of the 1988 Grundy Television logo), and a September 14, 2022 airing of The Sweeney episode "In From The Cold" on ITV4, plastering the 1969 Thames Colour Production endcap. Some episodes of U.S. TPIR from 2002 (like the 30th Anniversary Special, which was the first ever programme to use this logo) also have this logo. This variant is also used on games based on TV shows. It is also seen at the start of very early UK DVD releases between 2001-2002.
    • An in-credit version appears on the first two seasons of Tree Fu Tom, along with the second series of Kate & Mim-Mim (with white text); season 1 of Kate & Mim-Mim used an in-credit variant with the white background.
    • On the Finnish TV quiz show Voitto kotiin from 2002, the black text and a blue atom are seen quickly fading in on a white background.
  • Another variant of the early version has an enlarged second half of the blue atom on a white background on the first half; beside it is a small FremantleMedia logo. Copyright information is below.
  • The logo is on the right on some shows like Philippines Got Talent (blue atom, black text on white background).
  • A long version exists. In this version, a splash of white paint flies through the air, going from left to right. Then, it fades into a scene of two more splashes: one other direction, and the other flying down from left to right. Afterwards, it fades in to what is described in the more commonplace short version.
  • Some versions of this logo are stretched out, such as the one appearing after episodes of The Price Is Right $1,000,000 Spectacular from 2008.
  • On the 2014 Australian version of Family Feud, the short version of the logo is superimposed onto a blue background with a shining yellow line on top of it, This is superimposed onto the final few seconds of the program.
  • Starting with the 36th season of The Price Is Right, the FremantleMedia logo can be seen on the show's credits, replacing the Mark Goodson Productions logo. "FREMANTLEMEDIA" is in white, and the atom symbol is royal blue. The logo is accompanied by the following announcement: "This is (announcer's name) speaking for The Price is Right, a FremantleMedia production."
  • There is a B/W variant.
  • On some BBC airings of Neighbours in the 2000s, the URL "" appears below.

  • An in-credit version appears above the Endemol logo on the Netherlands' version of TPIR, Cash en Carlo.

  • A still shot version of any of the variants exist.
  • On older editions of X Factor Romania, an in-credit notice with the logo in a white box appears. The phrase "Produs în asociere cu FremantleMedia" (Produced in association with FremantleMedia) fades alongside it. After a few seconds, a copyright stamp also appears.
  • One of the last programmes that used this logo was the New Zealand soap drama Shortland Street (which still airs as of September 2023), where the AUSTRALIA logo appears in-credit. It was used up until March 13, 2020.

Technique: Computer animation mixed with live-action footage, all produced by Lambie-Nairn.

Audio: First, there is a low guitar strum, segueing into a synthesized percussion-driven instrumental. It then culminates with a three-strum guitar jingle, the last note of which echoes. This was composed by Score Productions, who also did the 1978 and 1990 versions of the theme music to ABC's World News Tonight and the music for The Price is Right, Family Feud and the 1986 Lorimar-Telepictures "Crashing Comets" logo.

  • On DVD releases of the 1983 television film Adam, the closing theme of this movie is heard, and, after the logo has finished, then the short version of the 1978 Alan Landsburg Productions theme over the finished logo. The ALP logo is seen before the FremantleMedia logo.
  • On the DVD release of the 1988 TV movie Where the Hell's that Gold???!!! and the Direct Source Special Products DVD release of the 1991 TV movie Baby of the Bride, it uses the low tone variant of the 1996 Pearson Television music on the "North America" version, as a result of double plaster.
  • A variant that has the long version jingle played on the common variant "paint bubble" also exists. The logo freeze-frames for a few seconds here.
  • On the Komunikata variant, a voiceover in Indonesian says "Komunikata is a production of FremantleMedia in association with TPI. Nusrin Nuerdin speaking". The closing theme is used (sometimes after the jingle plays).

    • It is also seen on 2014-2018 Familiada episodes.
    • The Polska version is seen on Season 1 of Brzydula and later episodes of Kuba Wojewódzki.

Legacy: It's not seen as popular due to its wide prevalence on television, in part due to its plastering of older logos, though it's not on the scale of Sony Pictures Television, the pre-2020 20th Television or CBS Television Distribution. Despite this however, it is still a favourite to many.
