20th Century Fox TV, Cirque du Soleil Team to Develop Live Action Primetime Scripted Shows

Companies will develop new live action primetime scripted TV shows together

Twentieth Century Fox Television is probably flipping out over its newest partnership: The TV studio has entered into a first-look deal with Cirque du Soleil Media.

The two companies will develop new live action primetime scripted TV shows together.

Cirque du Soleil Media is a joint venture between the world-renowned Quebec-based Cirque du Soleil and Bell Media.

“Cirque du Soleil is recognized for its incredible, high-quality, artistic live entertainment. I am confident that by joining forces with 20th Century Fox Television, we will propel our brand to new heights by creating distinctive high quality television productions,” said Jacques Methe, president of Cirque du Soleil Media. “Our goal with this partnership is not to televise our live performances, but rather create content in the primetime scripted arena that will elevate the genre by drawing from Cirque’s creative vision.”

“The Cirque du Soleil brand is so vibrant and colorful and mind-bending,” added 20th Century Fox Television President of Creative Affairs Jonnie Davis. “Their productions have such soul and imagination. We think the combination of Cirque and Twentieth is a perfect fit, and we’re already searching for writers who can tap into their world to create scripted series that are as distinctive and exciting as the world famous Cirque live events.”

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) brokered the deal with 20th Century Fox Television on behalf of Cirque du Soleil Media.
