Channel 4 Boss Ian Katz On ‘Big Brother’ Revival, ‘The Circle’ Renewal & E4’s Hunt For Tentpole Reality Show
Exclusive: Channel 4’s director of programs Ian Katz has said he would consider bringing back Big Brother, and revealed that youth channel E4 is conducting a major hunt for a new reality show.

In an exclusive interview with Deadline, Katz said he would not dismiss out of hand an approach from Endemol Shine Group producer Initial after Viacom’s Channel 5 ditched the longrunning reality show last year.

Asked if he would revisit Big Brother, he said: “I’d keep an open mind about pretty much any format.” Katz later added: “One of the things we’ve learned in the last few years is how effectively almost any historic format can be rebooted in really interesting, creative ways.”

His comments come amid rumors that Endemol Shine is keen to find a new UK home for Big Brother, although Katz did make clear he has not held any direct talks with the production group.
