Fox Asia subsidiaries to co-produce Chinese-language content for global distribution

Fox International Productions (FIP) and FOX Networks Group Asia (FNG Asia) are teaming to develop and co-produce Chinese-language content, including films, mini-series and TV series.

The fruits of the partnership between the two Fox entities, including 20th Century Fox's international production arm, are intended primarily for global distribution. However, the firms say they will also expand their current film productions in the Greater China region, what they regard as the most lucrative international film market.

Since its inception in 2010, FIP has produced, co-financed and distributed more than 50 local-language titles in 11 countries and has produced films specifically for the Greater China region such as Hot Summer Days; The Butcher, The Chef & The Swordsman; Love in Space; Kwai Boo: Crazy Space Adventure; and Bride Wars. Both FIP and FNG Asia have recently been actively producing and investing in Chinese-language content.

The two subsidiaries are confident that their resources and expertise will further strengthen their capability and competitive edge in the production business, making them the go-to platform for local creative talents to work with in creating high quality content for audiences in China and around the world. The collaboration will include development of new scripts and remake of existing Fox titles. The first title will start production in 2017.

“Greater China, and Asia overall, represent a very significant portion of our strategic focus on the production of feature films globally,” explained Tomas Jegeus, president of Fox International Productions. “FIP joining forces with FOX Networks Group Asia will now solidly position us as a go-to, one-stop shop for our local partners, and amongst the creative community overall in the region.”

Added Zubin Gandevia, president of FOX Networks Group Asia: “There is an appetite for high quality Chinese-language content and FNG, through our well established and renowned Chinese movies channel brand SCM, is perfectly placed to drive positive developments in this area ... There is so much talent in Asia and so much potential in Chinese and Asia film and TV making. FNG is committed to producing great content in and for this region. We look forward to working with FIP to help shine an international spotlight on Chinese content and see the genre gain the recognition and status it deserves.”
