Well here’s something to do, in honour of Bar Best Friend Joe From Endemol (I’d love to find out who he really is, if anyone), two old features on the sorts of successful formats that really only Endemol can produce:
And you can also read my EXCLUSIVE write-ups of the British pilots of both of these formats I went to in August 2006, three-quarters of the way down, including, of course, the hilarious Dale Winton having a strop story.
What putting these up here reminds me to do is to ask the question: where’s Dick de Rijk these days? I’m aware he left Endemol to make shows on his own, although I can’t think of anything he’s been involved with since. Although Deal or No Deal probably means he never has to work again, but anyway.
