Fox cable nets going to NATPE

TV confab attracting top companies

The National Assn. of TV Program Executives has added another media heavyweight to the companies taking space on the exhibition floor of its convention: the Fox Cable Networks.

“We’re eager to expose our programmers to TV syndicators, producers and production-company executives,” said Tony Vinciquerra, head of the Fox Networks Group.

The cable networks owned by Fox that will be looking to do business at the Natpe convention — which kicks off in Las Vegas Jan. 18 — are FX, National Geographic Channel, Speed, Fox Sports Net, Fuel, Fox Sports World and Fox Sports En Espanol.

Vinciquerra said so many production companies and independent producers make the trip to Natpe that networks like the Fox Cable Group “can save six-to-eight months and tens of thousands of dollars” by holding meetings at the convention rather than journeying all over the country to seek out these producers piecemeal.

The decision by Fox Cable Networks to rent a booth on the floor puts it in the company of the Universal TV Group, MGM TV, CBS Enterprises (made up of King World and CBS Broadcast Intl.), NBC Enterprises and Carsey-Werner-Mandebach Distribution.

That’s Natpe’s best convention-floor turnout in three years, said a spokesman for the association.
