FOX Heads to Saturday Night Prime Time Animation
FOX already dominates the market in late-night and prime time adult animation with Animation Domination on the Sunday night block. The Big Cartoon Database Blog reports that FOX is setting its sights on “creat[ing] a new unit to oversee the development and production of alternative animated series, shorts and user-adapted material for a brand new late-night animated programming block and new digital multi-platform network.” Nick Weidenfeld, former head of program development for Adult Swim, will run the new unit. It will be available on all digital platforms and fans will be able to submit their own content with the possibility of it being picked up by FOX for syndication. New talent will be able to open doors that they might have never reached through this new interactive venture.
