Kevin Reilly To Step Down As Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company

Kevin_Reilly

Kevin Reilly announced today that he will depart Fox Broadcasting Company by the end of June.

“21st Century Fox is a great company that has provided me with choice seats at the head table of pop culture over two very rewarding stints both at FBC and FX, and I am grateful to have benefitted from the leadership of Peter Rice, Chase Carey and Rupert Murdoch,” said Reilly. “Peter and I have been discussing this transition for a while, and now with a robust new slate of programming for next season and strength in the FBC ranks, it felt like the timing was as right as it could be. I couldn't be more thankful to my team – a group of creative, tireless and fun people whose fellowship I will miss.”

Peter Rice, Chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group, said, “Kevin’s undeniable creative gift and passion for talent have left an indelible mark on our company, and we’re extremely grateful to him for his leadership, beginning with ‘The Shield’ and ‘Nip/Tuck’ at FX and continuing through GLEE, NEW GIRL, THE FOLLOWING, SLEEPY HOLLOW and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE at FOX. Kevin and I have been discussing his desire for a new challenge for some time, so while everyone at the network will miss his enthusiasm for adventurous television, we all respect his decision and agreed that after the upfront presentation was the right time. I’m personally extremely grateful to Kevin for his partnership during the past five years and look forward to working with him again in the future.”

During the transition period, before naming a replacement, Reilly’s senior executives will report to Rice.

Reilly, who joined FOX in 2007 and was named Chairman of Entertainment in 2012, has distinguished himself as a force in both cable and broadcast television, leading FOX to five of its eight consecutive winning seasons and shepherding seminal hits like GLEE, “The Sopranos,” “The Office” and “ER.” Under his leadership, the network launched Golden Globe Award-winning comedy BROOKLYN NINE-NINE; Emmy Award-nominated and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon GLEE; this season’s breakout hit drama SLEEPY HOLLOW; as well as Emmy Award-nominated NEW GIRL, THE FOLLOWING and THE MINDY PROJECT.

Interview: Connor Buckley

MV5BMTUwNjE1MTk2OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODM0MjE1OQ@@._V1_SY653_SX452_AL_

Hopes where high when FOX announced that it had picked up family comedy Surviving Jack as a mid-season show for the network. After only a handful of episodes, the network decided to cancel its freshman comedy. Almost instantly, fans created online petitions, videos and went to social media to express their anger over the cancellation of the show. One of the stars of Surviving Jack, Connor Buckley is also one of the thousands who is pushing for the show to get a second life.

Connor sat down with the Pop Culture Principle to talk about Surviving Jack, his thoughts on why the show was cancelled and what fans can do to help spread the word to bring Surviving Jack back.

Pop Culture Principle – For those who still haven’t seen Surviving Jack, can you tell us what the show is about?

Connor Buckley – Surviving Jack takes place in the 90s. I think it’s the first show of its kind that focuses on the 90s. It has all the great music and clothes from the 90s and it’s a really nice throwback to that time. The show centers on a family in San Diego. The father is an oncologist and the mother was formerly a stay at home mom, but now she is going to law school. So the father, Jack, is now in charge of parenting us and his style of parenting is a lot more act first, ask questions later; which is what a lot of the comedy centers around.

FOX Cancels 'Dads', 'Surviving Jack' And 'Enlisted'

survivingjack

We guess you can say that FOX cleaned the comedy house today with three of its freshman comedies. According to Deadline, FOX has pulled the plug on Surviving Jack, Enlisted and Dads.

All three comedies struggled to find an audience and as recently as a week ago, there was talk that Dads might squeak by with a renewal.

FOX also decided to pass on comedy pilots for Fatrick, Dead Boss and No Place Like Home. That only leaves comedies Sober Companion and Cabot College in contention for a series pickup.
