Background

All American-Fremantle International, Inc. was an international division of Pearson Television (now "FremantleMedia") that was initially formed as a joint venture of All American Television with Fremantle International after All American Communications closed down in 1998. Its basic function was to produce shows for the international market.

(1995-1998; 1998-1999)

Logo: Virtually the same thing as the 1994 All American Television logo, but with the glowing white "FREMANTLE" in Copperplate Gothic, replacing "ALL AMERICAN TELEVISION" and has the byline "A Pearson Television Company" below it.

Variants: Two are known to exist at this time:

  • For Germany, the text "FREMANTLE" is in bold Times New Roman, and the byline "Fernsehproduktions GmbH" appears underneath in a smaller version of the same font. It either wipes in or stretches in.
  • For the Greek version, the words "FREMANTLE HELLAS" appear stacked, underneath the logo. The font used is a thin, san serif font, like Arial.
  • For Swedish and Polish regions, the thin font version is used, but the words are "ALL AMERICAN FREMANTLE INTERNATIONAL INC".
  • A Polish copyright licensing variant of the thin font version exists.
  • There are also two other versions where this logo is shown with the BBC or the Carlton logo on the bottom with their copyright notices on them.
  • On some shows, a short version existed.
  • On Highway Hangouts, the logo is in black background and says "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" at the top, and "ALL AMERICAN FREMANTLE" at the bottom.

Music/Sounds: The 1994 All American Television theme or a closing theme of the show. Sometimes, a short version of the 1994 theme exist.

Music/Sounds Variant: On a January 1996 episode of the German version of Jeopardy!, the logo is accompanied by a German announcer over the end theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare.

  • However, this company didn't founded until 1998, but it started uses their logo starting in 1995 and as a primary company in 1998.
  • The standard (first) version was recently discovered on a Polish TV show aptly named Miodowe lata.
  • Comments on the video of the version above led to the discovery of the two other variants. The German variant was found on a January 1996 episode of the German version of Jeopardy! on YouTube, while the Greek version was found on a 1995 episode of Ο Τροχός Της Τύχης, the Greek version of Wheel of Fortune.
  • The thin font version has been spotted in 2 Mot 1 and Idź na całość.
  • Again, however in 1999, it stopped using their logo accidentally, and it was switched to Pearson Television International logo.

Editor's Note: This is a prime example of identity laziness. By 2001, All American-Fremantle International was folded into FremantleMedia International.
