21st Century Fox took home 11 awards at the 48th NAACP Image Awards this past weekend. “Hidden Figures,” “Empire” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” each received multiple accolades.


FOX made the rounds at the winter 2017 Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour in Pasadena, California on Wednesday and had a number of big announcements to share.

When all was said and done, 21st Century Fox walked away from the 68th Emmy Awards with 27 awards across its businesses. FX Networks took home 18 Emmys on its own, setting a new record for basic cable, thanks in large part to “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

Social Impact

In its ongoing endeavor to develop directors with diverse voices, backgrounds, life experiences and perspectives, Fox Audience Strategy has begun it second annual Fox Global Directors Initiative (FDI). The directors who have been named Fox Director Fellows will participate in comedy or drama apprenticeship programs and be pitched for directorial opportunities across Fox entertainment programs.

Social Impact

Fox Audience Strategy has announced that writer Ester Lou Weithers is this year’s FOX Writers Intensive (FWI) Fellow. Ester, who was selected from a group of 12 finalists announced earlier this year, has received a script development deal with FOX Broadcasting Company and 20th Century Fox Television.


21st Century Fox received a grand total of 103 Emmy Awards from the Television Academy today, which means there will be plenty of anticipation here when the winners are announced at the 68th Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18.

FOX’s blockbuster television drama “Empire” certainly has eye-popping numbers to boast about: a total multiplatform audience of 23 million, a more than 20 percent lead over the second most popular broadcast show and 39 nominations for a variety of prestigious awards, for example. But stopping at the show’s numbers and rankings is missing the larger story.

New Girl

“New Girl” introduced the world to a heartbroken Jess Day and her three single male roommates when the show premiered in September 2011. On Tuesday, March 8, at 8/7c, FOX’s hit comedy series starring Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Lamorne Morris and Hannah Simone will air its 100th episode.
