Fox Entertainment Group was an American network of studios specializing in filmed entertainment owned by 21st Century Fox. Following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney, the group's assets were folded into various Disney units. The film studios 20th Century Fox, Fox Searchlight Pictures and Blue Sky Studios were folded into Walt Disney Studios.[1] Television studios such as 20th Century Fox Television, Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions were folded into Walt Disney Television.[2]

Its former owner, 21st Century Fox, was formerly known as News Corporation, which acquired all the stock of Fox Entertainment Group in 2005. In 2013, News Corporation was renamed 21st Century Fox and its publishing assets were spun off into the newly formed News Corp as part of a corporate re-organization.[3][4]

It was named after William Fox, born Vilmos Fried Fuchs, who created the original 20th Century Fox Film Corporation.

History

Fox Entertainment Group is formed in the 1990s after the purchase of the Metromedia-owned independent stations by the 20th Century Fox film studio, at the time jointly owned by Australian-American media mogul Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and Denver billionaire Marvin Davis. These stations would later become the foundation of the Fox television network (launched in October 1986), which would become the foundation of the company (named after the TV network) itself. Not long after the Metromedia deal was made, Murdoch purchased Davis's shares and News Corp assumed full control of the film studio, which was then placed within Fox Entertainment Group.

In 1995, Saban entered into a joint venture with the Fox children's television network to form Fox Kids Worldwide, which was best known for the first ten Power Rangers series. In 1997 it was renamed Fox Family Worldwide.[5] On July 23, 2001, it was announced that Fox Family Worldwide (now ABC Family Worldwide Inc.) would be sold to Disney from News Corporation and businessperson Haim Saban.[6] On October 24, 2001, the sale was completed.[7]

In 2013, Fox Networks Group launched the new channel FXX, which leans toward comedy shows and targeting younger viewers, and relaunched the FXM program block on Fox Movie Channel as a full-fledged network. Together with the flagship FX, they would form the FX Networks division.[8]

After Disney completed the acquisition of the 21st Century Fox assets on March 20, 2019, Fox Entertainment Group assets became Disney properties and are now reorganized under other Disney units.[9]
