21st Century Fox was well-represented at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2017 last weekend, as 20th Century Fox Film, FX Networks, FOX Broadcasting Company and National Geographic provided plenty of trailers, panels, parties and activations for fans. Here’s a quick rundown.

Heritage

FOX Broadcasting Company (FBC) debuted on Oct. 9, 1986, with “The Late Show with Joan Rivers” – a queen of comedy deployed to take on NBC’s king of late night, Johnny Carson. Rivers’ inaugural quartet of iconoclast guests included Cher, David Lee Roth, Elton John and Pee-Wee Herman, and the show was gangbusters.
