Last week, Fox revealed its public health situation-proof 2020 fall TV lineup, making the network the first broadcaster to announce a specific fall schedule since the outbreak of this global health crisis.
“The effects of this global health crisis leave no business unaffected. As a media company that prides itself on an entrepreneurial spirit and the focus that comes with doing fewer things better, we mobilized, swiftly creating an entirely new, original-programming lineup for the fall to share with our partners this upfront,” said Charlie Collier, CEO, Fox Entertainment.
