FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Friday 20 December, 2013


MEDIAWORKS TV INKS NEW CONTENT DEAL WITH 20th CENTURY FOX TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION

MediaWorks TV has announced a new relationship with major US studio 20th Century Fox Television, securing a raft of programming that will play across both TV3 and FOUR.

FOUR is the main beneficiary of the deal, which will see programmes like New Girl, Glee, The Simpsons, Family Guy and more returning to the channel in 2014. MediaWorks will also return to its Fast FOUR strategy later in the year, with many FOX programmes broadcast in New Zealand the ‘same week as the States.’

TV3’s most popular international drama, Sons of Anarchy, will return, and the much anticipated final season of How I Met Your Mother and new series of The Simpsons will play on TV3. The deal also includes the new Robin Williams comedy The Crazy Ones, two new network dramas, Crisis and Gang Related, and a first run feature package that gives MediaWorks movies like The Descendants, Ice Age: Continental Drift and Prometheus for both TV3 and FOUR.

MediaWorks TV Director of Programming, Mark Caulton says the new agreement provides exciting opportunities for 20th Century Fox Television Distribution and MediaWorks.

“This is fantastic news for the company, our viewers and our clients. This new deal with FOX secures some of the very best international television for TV3 and FOUR audiences, and we couldn’t be happier to have reached an agreement that works for both parties.

“We’re delighted to have our key FOX shows back on air, and we head into 2014 in the best possible position to deliver great value to our viewers and commercial clients.

Schedule information will be available in due course.
