Fox Channels Preview Programs

NEW YORK — Fox Family Channel is developing 11 new original series for its primetime schedule, including four reality shows, and also has 17 original movies in development.

Fox Family’s daytime schedule will feature four new series, including one from Alicia Silverstone, and Fox Kids Network is adding eight new series, including an animated version of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Evolution,” an animated series based on the DreamWorks movie of the same name that is set for release during the summer. The networks announced their respective development slates Wednesday at an upfront presentation.

“We all got together and formed a new (development) team in June, (and) one of the first things we set out to do was redefine what a family channel could be,” Fox Family Channel and Fox Kids Network president Maureen Smith said. “Our goal was to prove you could be a family channel and deliver adults in primetime.”
