Fox is launching a new unit for development and production of alternative animated series, shorts and user-adapted material. It will be used for the network’s Saturday 11 PM-12:30 AM late-night block, once home of MadTV and the Spike Feresten and Wanda Sykes talk shows and currently airing reruns. The new late-night animated programming block, which will feature four new series per season, will launch in January 2013. Nick Weidenfeld, former head of program development at Adult Swim, has been tapped to run the unit.
