Fox has reorganized some of its production units, combining two studios involved in television production. Deadline.com reports that the company formed Fox 21 Television Studios out of Fox 21 and Fox TV Studios, two studios focused mainly on cable production.
Bert Salke will run the new entity, the report notes. FTVS President David Madden’s recent move to Fox Broadcasting Co. prompted the merger.
“We had two competing companies within our own family,” Fox TV Group Chairman Dana Walden told Deadline. She added: “There is a great upside in being able to unite the organizations — there are fantastic executives on each side — and being able to approach the creative community with a unified voice.”
The Fox 21 roster includes “Homeland,” while FTVS’s productions include “Burn Notice” and “The Americans.”
