Fox Entertainment, a division of Fox Corp., has just acquired the Emmy Award-winning production company Bento Box Entertainment. The acquisition was announced by Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment.
Bento Box, which has studios in Los Angeles and Atlanta, is the animation studio behind “Bob’s Burgers” and two of Fox’s upcoming series, “Duncanville” and “The Great North.” Bento Box co-founders Scott Greenberg and Joel Kuwahara, COO Brett Coker and the senior executive team will continue to lead the company.
“You can’t walk around the Fox lot without noticing a decades-long passion for animation. It is in the Fox DNA and has served legions of fans, partners and investors,” Collier said. “As we grow Fox for the next generation, it only makes sense we would expand our animation capabilities by bringing on board the best in the business: Bento Box. The Bento-Fox combination brings Fox front-door access to the next wave of the genre’s creative leaders, while still maintaining Bento Box’s focus on all that makes them a terrific partner for outside producers. We’re thrilled to work with Scott, Joel, Brett and their amazing team to take all they’ve so capably built to new heights.”
