Netherland-based Talpa has entered into an exclusive partnership deal with Nicole Plas’ newly formed production company Dok1 Media in Belgium, giving Dok1 Media the exclusive rights to the Talpa format catalogue starting July 2018. The newly formed collaboration follows Plas’ decision to step down as managing director of EndemolShine Belgium after 23 years, to focus on her own projects.
Commenting, Plas (left) said: “I’m very excited about this partnership. I believe Talpa will be an excellent partner and look forward to a long-term collaboration and producing many great formats together.”
Plas has an extensive track record of producing reality and entertainment shows like Big Brother, Deal or No Deal, Star Academy and The Wall. During recent years, she also produced multiple shows for Talpa, including all seasons of The Voice and The Voice Kids. Plas’ first production under the Dok1 Media label will be The Voice Belgique season 8 for RTBF, expected to air in Spring 2019.
