London– FremantleMedia has acquired a 51 percent majority stake in Abot Hameiri, an Israeli production company specialising in entertainment formats, scripted reality and drama.

The company is a key strategic acquisition for FremantleMedia as they sought a partner who had a complementary creative approach and strong relationships within the thriving broadcast and production community in Israel.  Abot Hameiri will be FremantleMedia’s creative hub in Israel, providing a strong pipeline of content which FremantleMedia can then produce and distribute through its international global network.
