Twentieth Television, Inc. (stylized as 20th Television) is an American television syndication studio and the syndication arm of 20th Century Fox Television, Fox 21 Television Studios, and FX Productions, with 20th Century Fox Television being a subsidiary of Walt Disney Television.

History

20th Television was formed in 1989 by Fox, Inc. (the News Corporation unit that oversaw 20th Century Fox at that time) in order to separate 20th Century Fox's television productions (which were previously handled by its 20th Century Fox Television division) from the movie studio in order to increase the latter's output.[1] During this time, 20th Television and 20th Century Fox served as two of Fox's four main units, along with the Fox Broadcasting Company and Fox Television Stations.[2] Following a 1994 restructuring of Fox's television production companies, 20th Television was refocused on syndication and "non-traditional programs"; its network television division was moved back to 20th Century Studios and retook the 20th Century Fox Television name.[3]

20th Television distributes almost all programming and documentaries from the television production unit including Foxstar Productions and its subsidiaries and the motion picture studio's output (and their own subdivisions). It owns programming from other production companies and studios they have acquired, including MTM Enterprises, most by Metromedia Producers Corporation, and most by New World Entertainment (including those by Four Star Television and Genesis Entertainment).

The company also syndicates and/or co-syndicates product from partners such as Regency Television and Debmar-Mercury (until April 2019).[4][5] The Lincolnwood Drive subsidiary of 20th Television has been used to produce the syndicated court series Divorce Court since the 2014-15 season, mainly for tax reasons.

In 1992, Greg Meidel became president of 20th Television, serving until 1995. Meidel was president of MyNetworkTV when he add 20th Television's same position to his responsibility in 2009.[6]

As part of the restructuring that stemmed from News Corporation spinning off its entertainment assets into 21st Century Fox, it was announced on July 8, 2013, that 20th Television will operate under the management of 20th Century Fox Television; it was previously under Fox Television Stations. As a result, the former company's president will now report to the latter's chairmen.[7] After the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by The Walt Disney Company on March 20, 2019, president Greg Meidel was laid off.[8]

On January 17, 2020, it was announced that the "Fox" name would be dropped from several of the Fox assets acquired by Disney. However, the renaming of 20th Century Fox Television, 20th Television, and Fox 21 Television Studios, as well as 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and Fox Networks Group International, was not made clear.[9]
