Fox Executive Insists Disney Will Not "Disney-fy" Their TV Shows

Fox Executive Insists Disney Will Not

(For instance, it's unclear what the Disney/Fox deal means for Gotham.) Fox as a company will shift its focus to news and sports, but does that mean Fox TV shows will be cancelled or move to something like ABC or Disney's new streaming service? The idea of Marvel's parent company owning Fox's production studio has some fans anxious about comic book television co-existence.

Ryan Murphy shared his feelings on the impending Fox-Disney merger during the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday.

It's been nearly a month since Disney finalized its acquisition of 21 Century Fox, and it seems like the Mickey Mouse House has started its overhaul of the studio's assets. "New Fox will chart a new course". Fox Broadcasting Co, along with Fox News and the Fox owned and operated stations, will be spun off into the "new Fox", explained Fox TV Group Chairman Gary Newman.

Now we're beginning to get some idea of what Fox television really is going to look like for the next 12-18 months - the period Disney will have to wait until the deal gets its expected final approval from federal regulators.

What it seems to mean for the time being: The stuff we love is staying at Fox for the foreseeable future, and it won't be watered down, on the content side, by Disney's G-rated reputation. Let us know your thoughts and concerns in the comment section below! "We won't worry about what happens down the road when this deal happens". This development season, we are reading scripts. "They were incredibly vocal to us about how much they liked our brand, how much they admired the programming", he told reporters. "They will be encouraging of our content".

There haven't even been creative discussions about the content, Newman added, though he is confident that Disney won't "Disney-fy" their shows.
