HistoryEdit

Fox Entertainment was formed in 2019 after Fox's former television studio, 20th Century Fox Television (among other assets), were acquired by Disney.[3]

On August 6, 2019, Fox Entertainment acquired animation studio Bento Box Entertainment.[4]

In April 2020, Fox Entertainment announced their partnership with Caffeine to bring the AniDom Beyond Show, a recap show hosted by Andy Richter.[5]

Fox Entertainment also will develop scripted and unscripted projects through its Sidecar unit, identifying and incubating programming for both Fox's broadcast network and third-party platforms. Fox Entertainment will retain ownership of all series that originate under the Sidecar production unit.[6]

In August 2021, Gordon Ramsay signed an overall deal with Fox Entertainment to form Studio Ramsay Global, which acquired all of Ramsay's existing Studio Ramsay business with All3Media, and will produce his future projects.[7] In September 2021, Fox Entertainment acquired TMZ from WarnerMedia in a deal worth about $50 million.[8]

In November 2021, Fox Alternative Entertainment signed Wonwoo Park, creator of the South Korean format King of Mask Singer (which had been adapted by Fox as The Masked Singer) to a first-look deal with the studio.[9]

In December 2021, Fox Entertainment acquired television film studio MarVista Entertainment, with a focus on producing content for its streaming service Tubi.[10]
