2waytraffic is a television production company based in Hilversum, Netherlands. It was established in 2004 by former Endemol executives Kees Abrahams, Unico Glorie, Taco Ketelaar, and Henk Keilman. It currently has offices in London, New York, Budapest, Stockholm, and Madrid.

History

The company expanded significantly in 2006 with three acquisitions, beginning with the mobile solutions provider Emexus in June and then the content developer Intellygents in August.[1][2] The most notable acquisition, however, was that of the rights of the UK company Celador International and its programme library, including the international Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? franchise, on December 1, 2006.[3][4]

On March 14, 2007, Celador International Limited was relaunched as 2waytraffic International.[5]

Sony era

On June 4, 2008, 2waytraffic was acquired by 2JS Productions, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment.[6] On September 29, 2waytraffic became the distributor of the entertainment formats by SPTI.[7]

On April 1, 2009, Sony Pictures Entertainment consolidated its US and international television companies under the SPT roof such as: 2waytraffic, Embassy Row, Starling, Teleset, and Lean-M. Sony Pictures Television International now operates in-name-only.[8]

In April 2012, it became "Sony Pictures Television International Formats", with the 2waytraffic logo immediately being replaced by the Sony Pictures Television logo on internationally licensed shows. It's currently an in-name-only unit of Sony Pictures Television.
