“The unscripted arena is a cornerstone of the global television ecosystem, and some of FOX’s biggest hits have been based on international formats.

Our goal is to create and adapt the hits of tomorrow, and our sponsorship of the MIPFORMATS International Pitch will keep us at the forefront of introducing that next ground-breaking concept to viewers. 

The team and I are very much looking forward to reviewing this year’s submissions when the business converges in the Palais in April.”
