Business news

As the Sky/Fox/Comcast/Disney clash of tectonic plates continues, sign of another splinter. Endemol Shine, producer of a vast portfolio of British TV, is putting 'For Sale' signs up.

Endemol is 50/50 owned by 21st Century Fox and US private equity firm Apollo Global Management. The asking price could by up to $4m, half of which would pass to Comcast or Disney, if either took over Fox programme-making.

Endemol companies make Masterchef, Broadchurch, Mr Bean, Peaky Blinders, Big Brother, Grantchester, The Bridge, Good Karma Hospital, Humans, All Together Now and a pile more. CEO is Sophie Turner-Laing, formerly of both Sky and the BBC, and Peter Salmon is Chief Creative Officer.
