FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE     Tuesday, Feb 19, 2013                                  
No. 1 Digital Channel for Scripted Drama Created By Jon Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia 
Explores Female Characters in Original Series 
Extends FOX’s Efforts to Discover and Nurture Talent and Content on Digital 
Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has entered into a multi-year pact with YouTube 
original drama channel WIGS. Building upon News Corporation’s initial 
investment, FOX and WIGS have formed a programming, marketing and distribution 
partnership designed to expand the breadth of offerings through the WIGS 
channel, and test and nurture dramatic concepts and talent in the digital 
realm.  Under the terms of the partnership agreement, FOX will assume a 
collaborative role in developing and marketing the channel to grow its base of 
female viewers, with an eye toward building content that can be programmed on 
FOX and/or other channels. 
“Our overarching goal is to create an ecosystem where creative people and ideas 
can find expression independently in the online environment, but benefit from 
the resources that the larger platform of the network affords,” said Kevin 
Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “It takes unique 
creators and operators like Jon and Rodrigo and Jake Avnet, who not only 
understand the unfettered and entrepreneurial digital system, but also have a 
firm grasp on the mainstream – and can capitalize on both. They’ve spent a year 
building a novel production process and a vibrant alternative pipeline, and 
we’re excited to help them take those tremendous stories and talent and develop 
them into long-term digital or on-air assets.” 
“Rodrigo, Jake and I are looking forward to working with Kevin and his team on 
the next iteration of WIGS. We will continue to write, direct and produce 
quality scripted entertainment with many of the most talented actors, writers, 
directors and producers in our business for our YouTube platform. FOX will 
allow us to expand our horizons and offer us limitless possibilities, which we 
intend to fully take advantage of in all traditional media platforms, as well,” 
said Jon Avnet. 
WIGS was launched in May 2012 by director/producers Avnet (“Black Swan,” “Fried 
Green Tomatoes,“ “Risky Business”), Rodrigo Garcia (“Albert Nobbs,” “In 
Treatment,” “Big Love”) and Jake Avnet, and is now the No. 1 channel for 
scripted drama on YouTube, with over 22 million views to date and more than 
100,000 subscribers. The channel offers high-end original series, short films, 
and documentaries, all starring female leads. Popular series on the WIGS 
channel include “Blue,” about a mother with a secret life, starring Julia 
Stiles, Uriah Shelton, and Jeanne Tripplehorn; “Lauren,” a narrative about the 
complications from a military rape, starring Troian Bellisario and Jennifer 
Beals; “Serena,” a story of lust, temptation and forbidden love, starring 
Jennifer Garner and Alfred Molina; and “Jan,” about a young woman whose first 
job goes awry, starring Virginia Madsen, Stephen Moyer and Caitlin Gerard.
Additional WIGS offerings have included such actors as America Ferrera, Alison 
Pill, Dakota Fanning, Jimmy Wolk, Allison Janney, Walton Goggins, Maura 
Tierney, Michael C. Hall, Sarah Jones, Jason Isaacs, Catherine O’Hara, Chris
