20th Century Fox Television is a television studio owned by Walt Disney Television, which ultimately became a division of Disney Television Studios. Since the acquisition of much of 21st Century Fox on March 20, 2019, it has been owned by The Walt Disney Company. 20th Television is the syndication arm of 20th Century Fox Television.


Founded in 1949 as many movie studios were turning to television. As part of 20th Century Fox, it was bought by News Corporation in 1985, and it was spun off into 21st Century Fox in 2013. Disney's acquisition of most of 21st Century Fox's assets, which included 20th Century Fox Television, closed on March 20, 2019.
