Now that Walt Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets is officially done, Fox is looking to assure viewers its new slimmed-down company will still carry their favorite TV shows.
In the 90-second promo, which aired Wednesday night, Fox celebrated this “fresh start” by showcasing the programming that will continue to run on its remaining networks following the acquisition of its studio by Disney. These shows include “The Simpsons,” the musical drama “Empire” and the Ryan Murphy dramedy “9-1-1.” Several of these series, including “Empire,” are produced by Twentieth Century Fox TV, which is now owned by Disney.
Fox used clips from its shows to address to the shakeup happening at Fox. “The company we knew and loved is changingit’s time for us to build an entirely new empire,” said “Empire” character Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard, in the spot.
