“Fox increased its viewership outside of the U.S. by 13%, cementing its place as the biggest entertainment brand in TV,” says Lopez, who as president and CEO of Fox International Channels is responsible for that growth. Perhaps the most notable achievement under his watch has been the rapid growth of Fox Sports, now reaching 73 million homes in 88 countries outside the U.S. On the content side, Lopez oversaw the launch of Fox International Studios, which is expanding FIC’s original scripted and non-scripted programming. Indeed, he says the biggest story in cable this year is “the continued increase in quantity and quality of scripted content being offered.”
