Viacom International Media Network, part of the American entertainment firm, is collaborating with Netherlands-based television production company Endemol to create a new entertainment channel, premiering in Poland this summer, with plans to expand globally. The channel, called Viacom Blink! will target women, ages 16-49, according to entertainment publication

The official press release states that the debut in Poland will reach more than one million households. After the pilot, Blink! will roll out in Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.
Endemol, producers of the reality television show Big Brother, will provide its extensive library of shows including dramas, documentaries and game shows.
