Fox Int’l hopes Crime pays

Italo web will air police investigation skeins

Feeding an Italian fascination for the felonious, Fox Intl. Channels is launching Fox Crime, a theme web focused on crime and courtroom drama, which will bow on News Corp. paybox Sky Italia on Oct. 31.

“Crime and police investigation programming is a proven genre in Italy and across the globe,” said Emiliano Calemzuk, topper of Rome-based Fox Intl. Channels Europe.

The 24-hour channel will air homegrown docudrama series “Delit ti” (Crimes), a realistic reconstruction of some of Italy’s most notorious — and often unresolved — felonies of the past century.

Fox Crime will offer about 100 hours of locally produced product yearly, plus lots of Hollywood series, including “CSI,” “Law & Order” and over 150 hours of Court TV.

Move reps the second time a Fox-branded channel has used Italy as its testing turf, following the femme-targeted Fox Life, which was developed and launched in the Italian market.

Chief buyer for Fox Crime will be Fabrizio Salini, head of entertainment for Fox Intl. Channels Italy.
