Granada, a division of ITV Studios, is moving aggressively into fictional production in Germany, a strategic expansion also seen at one of Granada's main international competitors, Endemol.

RTL and Granada have partnered before on entertainment formats. The German net has just commissioned a third season of the BBC's "Strictly Come Dancing" format, which Granada's Cologne-based operation will produce and Granada's German version of ITV Studios' "I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" has been a ratings champ on RTL.
