Legendary American Bandstand host Dick Clark's eponymous production company is the latest venerable American asset to sell to a Chinese bidder.
Chinese billionaire Wang Jianlin announced on Friday that he would pay $1 billion for "So You Think You Can Dance" producer Dick Clark Productions. Wang's other assets include AMC Entertainment Holdings ( AMC) and Legendary Entertainment, and he's also held talks to buy a 49% stake in Paramount Pictures from Viacom ( VIAB) .
Chinese conglomerates have snapped up American media assets recently. Last month, for example, Alibaba Pictures Group, backed by Alibaba Group Holdings ( BABA) , acquired a minority stake in Steven Spielberg's Amblin Partners production company.
