Fox Entertainment Taps Julia Franz As Head Of Comedy, Daniel Weidenfeld As Head of Animation

  • Deadline
TV industry veteran Julia Franz is poised to become Svp and head of comedy for Fox Entertainment, while Daniel Weidenfeld is expected to be named Svp and head of animation at the broadcast network, I have learned. Franz will oversee all comedy production and development for the network; Weidenfeld will shepherd all animated production and development for ox Entertainment and third party platforms. Both will report to Fox Entertainment president Michael Thorn.

Fox has been without senior comedy executives since April, when the head of comedy, Evp Comedy Programming & Development Suzanna Makkos, left to join HBO Max as Evp Original Comedy and Animation, and Jonathan Gabay, Svp comedy development and programming, left to join Berlanti Productions as Svp Development. I hear out in the current executive transition is Roberto Alcantara, VP Comedy Programming & Development.

Fox Entertainment brass cast a wide net in its search for a new head of comedy.
