Fox hires Kline for videogame arm

Former Ubisoft VP to oversee licensing

Twentieth Century Fox has tapped Adam Kline, a former biz development VP at vidgame publisher Ubisoft, to oversee its videogame licensing operations.

In the newly created post of VP of new-media enterprises, Kline will oversee videogame projects based on the studio’s film and TV properties.

In addition, he’ll work on the studio’s growing number of initiatives to sell licensed content directly online through its own websites, such as Thesimpsonsshop.com.

He reports to Elie Dekel, exec VP of domestic licensing.

Like other studios, Fox is increasing the number of properties it is licensing to the vidgame biz. In the past year, publishers have put out games based on “24” and “Family Guy.” Later this year, Electronic Arts will release a new “Simpsons” vidgame.
