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.

TV

Ben McKenzie, the star who plays lead character James Gordon on FOX’s “Gotham,” has been waiting a long time for the 16th episode of the show’s third season, which will air Monday, May 1, at 8 p.m. ET/PT: It will be the first time he’ll be credited as a director.

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.

Company

September means back-to-school season, the end of summer and loads of new television programming. It’s a particularly exciting month for FOX and FX Networks, which are unleashing a huge wave of fall series and season premieres for audiences to enjoy.
