I am writing to express our dismay at the news that Endemol is producing a ‘Celebrity Circus’ reality TV show in Portugal which, apparently, will feature performing animals.
Endemol has earned a reputation for pioneering many popular TV shows, but this move to include in one of your productions, animals that have suffered deprivation, confinement and often beatings during training, would not only seriously damage your company’s reputation, but flies in the face of public opinion on this issue.
We would like to reassure you that we would happily support Celebrity Circus if it focused upon human talent, and did not include animals. Shows with human only acts have been the biggest growth area in the circus sector of the entertainment industry. This has not just been in the travelling circus, but in places like Las Vegas where there have traditionally been a lot of animal shows – almost all have been replaced by human only shows (such as Cirque du Soleil).
We would urge you to only proceed with this format if it doesn’t employ animals and we would ask that you end your endorsement of Circo Victor Hugo Cardinalli.
We hope that Endemol will be able to take a clear ethical position on this matter. Companies like Endemol have a responsibility to uphold society’s disapproval of violence, whatever the species being victimised. Furthermore you have an opportunity to not only keep Endemol at the forefront of entertainment, but also in taking an ethical stance in the entertainment world.
We look forward to hearing from you.
