Background: Foxstar Productions was the documentary television production arm of 20th Century Fox Television, Inc. that was originally formed in 1993 as a TV movie and mini-series unit under Steve Bell, the former TCFTV network president. The first series was the Alien Nation TV movie series. In 2000, Foxstar was made a unit of Fox Television Studios (now "Fox 21 Television Studios"). Although 20th Century Fox has produced documentaries since 1987, a standard logo wasn't used until 1994.
Nicknames: "The Star Tower"
Logo: We see the Fox structure that's the same as the 1994 20th Century Fox, the 1995 Fox Searchlight Pictures, and the 1992 20th Television , but there is a giant star on top of the stack and the words:
P R O D U C T I O N S
in the lines below. Once the structure is in the familiar distance, the News Corporation byline fades in.
Later Variant: From 1999 onwards, this logo can be seen after a split-second of the Fox Television Studios logo. Both logos zoom-in slowly.
FX/SFX: The zoom-out in the original, the stormy sky, the lightning, and the logo switch in the FTS-FSP combo.
- 1994-2000: The end of Bruce Broughton's arrangement of the 1994 TCF fanfare.
- 1999-2005: The FTS-FSP combo is the same as Fox Television Studios, accompanied by a lightning strike.
Availability: Uncommon. Seen on documentaries produced by Fox. It first appeared on A Hollywood Christmas, and it appears on the VHS release of the special. Other documentaries included Rogers and Hammerstein: The Sound of Movies when it originally aired on A&E, AMC’s Backstory, and select episodes of A&E’s Biography, as well as many documentaries from The Travel Channel. The Fox Television Studios combo first appeared on the Fox Family documentary series Famous Families.
