A TV production co. 'A', wants to make a 'quiz app' based on

Resolved Question:

A TV production co. 'A', wants to make a 'quiz app' based on my TV persona 'The Beast'. I originated the persona for 'The Beast'. I have used this persona in TV series in the US produced by 'B' and in the UK produced by 'C' (other TV production companies). I want to know if I am entitled to adopt the persona for the quiz app to be made by 'A'. it may be that the US prod co and the UK prod co did develop the persona. Please advise.
Thanks.
