Fox Networks Group Slates First Simulcast With ‘Cosmos’ Premiere

Fox Networks Group will see its first cross-network simulcast with the premiere of “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.”

On March 9, the nonfiction, science-based series will roll out on the FNG nets including Fox, FX, FXX, National Geographic Channel, Fox Sports 1 and Nat Geo Wild. “Cosmos” will then continue its 13-episode run on Sundays on Fox and Mondays on Nat Geo. Program is hosted by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson and hails from Cosmos Studios and Seth MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Prods.

“’Cosmos’ is the kind of rich, epic storytelling that we hope will not only be phenomenal entertainment, but also ignite curiosity and move a generation to take a deeper interest in science and the larger world from which we come,” said Peter Rice, chairman and CEO, Fox Networks Group. “Seth, Ann, Neil and the entire team behind ‘Cosmos’ have created one of the most incredible experiences ever imagined for television, and we’re supporting it with the biggest launch we’ve ever orchestrated at Fox Networks Group.”

FNG isn’t the only network family getting into the simulcast biz. In late 2013, A+E Networks bowed event series “Bonnie and Clyde” across its portfolio of cablers, including History, A&E and Lifetime.
