Gamezlab was a core gaming subsidiary of BBC Worldwide's BBC Multimedia division founded in 2001. Gamezlab was also a development studio that developed the technology for the BBC Three series FightBox, as well as the video game based on the show.

Gamezlab was closed in 2004 following the cancellation of a video game based on Spooks, alongside BBC Multimedia's downsizing to become solely a licensor before ceasing operations entirely in 2006.
