Fox Networks Group is launching a formats division to increase its footprint in the unscripted world.
The division – Fox Look – will be headed by David Lyle, who was most recently president of Fox Reality Channel, which closed last year. It will license formats internationally by setting up partnerships with existing international production companies as well as establish new production entities in a number of territories.
Fox Look will assume responsibility for existing formats from the Twentieth Century library including Tempation Island, Beauty and the Geek and Celebrity Spelling Bee.
Lyle will report to Fox Networks Group chairman and chief executive Tony Vinciquerra and will also work closely with Marion Edwards, president of international television, Fox.
