Fox Television Stations gets rights to game show library Buzzr TV
Some beloved game shows are coming to Fox-owned television stations in a new deal between Fox Television Stations, FremantleMedia, and Debmar-Mercury.
Buzzr TV will showcase episodes from its 40,000-plus episode library of classic game shows—including Family Feud, Let’s Make a Deal, and Password—on Fox stations.
“There is nothing else like BUZZR TV,” said Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, co-presidents of Lionsgate-owned Debmar-Mercury in a statement. “It will be the only game show network operating in the digital multicast universe, providing stations with a highly marketable asset. We believe the depth of the FremantleMedia library will allow the network to secure its future, offering viewers a proven, quality and unique alternative to other digital channels.”
The network plans to launch this summer.
