Fox Searchlight Enters the TV Business, and Potentially a New Turf War Inside 21st Century Fox

  • Indiewire
As Disney and 21st Century Fox approach the merger of their production assets, Fox has one more opportunity for infighting with the announcement of Searchlight Television, a new division of Fox Searchlight Pictures that will develop for broadcast, cable, and streaming.

David Greenbaum and Matthew Greenfield have been promoted to presidents of production for film and television, effective immediately. Searchlight Television said it would develop “scripted series, limited series, documentaries and more.”

However, about that timing. Once the Disney/Fox merger is consummated, 21st Century Fox employees will be in a state of wait and see. The future for all Fox content producers — Fox Searchlight, 20th Century Fox Film, 20th Century Fox TV — is unclear.

This also creates more TV production competition inside 21st Century Fox. Searchlight Television won’t fall under the domain of Fox Television Group chairmen Dana Walden and Gary Newman, whose oversight includes the Fox network,

Trust: Season One Ratings

FX has racked up some Nielsen ratings wins with anthology series like American Horror Story, American Crime Story, and Feud.

Olivia de Havilland’s ‘Feud’ Lawsuit Against FX Thrown Out by Appeals Court
Olivia de Havilland’s feud with FX appears to be over, at least for now. An appeals court has thrown out a lawsuit filed by “Gone With the Wind” actress de Havilland that she filed over her portrayal in the FX series “Feud.” De Havilland sued FX and “Feud” producer Ryan Murphy in July, on the eve of her 101st birthday, alleging that her identity was used without her authorization in the FX series, and that the actress, who was portrayed by Catherine Zeta-Jones in the miniseries, was placed in a false light.

Olivia de Havilland’s ‘Feud’ Suit Tossed by Appeals Court

Olivia de Havilland’s ‘Feud’ Suit Tossed by Appeals Court
A three-judge panel has tossed out the defamation suit brought by actress Olivia de Havilland, in a ruling that affirms the right of filmmakers to embellish the historical record.

De Havilland sued FX Networks last year, alleging that the miniseries “Feud” included a damaging portrayal of her. The case was closely watched because it appeared to threaten the ability of filmmakers to portray real events with fictionalized elements. But in its ruling Monday, the court unanimously held that such portrayals are protected by the First Amendment.

FX Wins Appellate Court 'Feud' With Olivia de Havilland

In a major win for docudrama creators, a California appeals court on Monday ruled that Olivia de Havilland's lawsuit against Ryan Murphy and FX should have been tossed because it's precluded by the First Amendment.

The 101-year-old actress sued in June, claiming the series Feud: Bette and Joan makes her seem like a vulgar hypocrite and gossip. Defendants asked the court to strike her claims under California's anti-slapp law, which aims to bring an early end to frivolous lawsuits designed to chill protected activity like free speech.

Judge Holly Kendig found Feud is protected speech, but also that de...

Susan Sarandon and Edie Falco Starring in Maryam Keshavarz’s “Vulture Club”


Susan Sarandon is swapping Bette Davis’ Old Hollywood glamour for ER scrubs. The “Feud” actress is toplining “Vulture Club,” a film about a veteran nurse desperate to rescue her journalist son after he’s captured by a terrorist group. According to a press release, the film will hit theaters later this year, followed by a release on YouTube Red.

The film’s synopsis reads, “After running into roadblocks with government agencies, [Helen] discovers a clandestine community of journalists and advocates who might be able to help her.” Among them are Charlotte (Edie Falco), another mother of a reporter, and journalist Sam (Matt Bomer, “American Horror Story”).

From Maryam Keshavarz (“Circumstance”), the film co-stars Lola Kirke (“Mozart in the Jungle”), Adepero Oduye (“Pariah”), and Sheila Vand (“Whiskey Tango Foxtrot”). Keshavarz wrote “Vulture Club” with Jonathan Mastro.

Olivia De Havilland, FX Argue Over the Word ‘Bitch’ in ‘Feud’ Hearing

Olivia De Havilland’s attorney argued Tuesday that there is a significant difference between the actress calling her sister a “bitch” and calling her sister a “dragon lady.”

Attorneys for De Havilland and for the cable channel FX appeared at a California Court of Appeal hearing to argue whether the actress’ lawsuit against producers of the miniseries “Feud: Bette and Joan” can move forward. A state superior court judge in August turned down FX’s request to have the suit thrown out. FX appealed, leading to Tuesday’s hearing.

Olivia de Havilland, FX Debate Whether "Bitch" is a Vulgar Term in 'Feud' Arguments

Olivia de Havilland's lawsuit over Feud: Bette and Joan has the potential to shape how filmmakers approach docudramas in the coming decades, so it's only fitting that the setting for appellate arguments would be a USC classroom packed with future lawyers. 

The legal fight began in June, when the 101-year-old actress sued FX and Ryan Murphy over her portrayal by Catherine Zeta-Jones in Feud. The star says the series was meant to look like reality, but no one consulted her and the show makes her seem like a vulgar hypocrite and gossip.

Fox boss: Netflix deals have opened a 'Pandora's box'

  • ScreenDaily
Gary Newman says SVoD giant’s talent spend is ‘unsustainable’.

Fox boss Gary Newman has claimed that Netflix has opened a “Pandora’s box” by agreeing a £215m deal with Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

The Fox Television Group co-chairman has claimed that the Murphy mega-deal symbolises “a change in the industry” in which cash-rich companies such as Netflix lure premium talent with whopping paychecks.

The exec, who oversees the 20th Century Fox Television studio as well as broadcaster Fox with co-chair Dana Walden, warned that the model will prove to be unsustainable.
