ICM Partners has formed a joint venture with digital media company Screenz that will focus on developing interactive entertainment.

Screenz has created interactive dashboards, applications and online games for such television series as Big Brother, Master Chef, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show and The Million Pound Drop. The partnership would leverage the on-air creative talent and producers that ICM Partners represents.
"Our proven know-how and catalog of products combined with the agency’s wide reach and expertise will lead to great opportunities and make us the leader in the industry for interactive experiences," said Eli Uzan, The Box CEO and Screenz president.
