Pearson Television was the American-based television production and distribution arm of British company Pearson PLC.

History

In 1994 after a bidding war Pearson, PLC. bought the production arms of Thames Television, Hill-Fields Entertainment and ACI Worldwide Distribution making their way into the television industry. In 1996 Pearson, PLC. bought the production company All American Television, and re-branded it as Pearson Television. This acquisition gave them the rights to various libraries, including Mark Goodson Productions, LBS Communications and more. Pearson Television ended in 2000 when Pearson PLC sold the division to CLT-UFA, who later went on to form the RTL Group. The following year Pearson Television was re-branded as FremantleMedia International.
