FOX Takes Second Window on Prime Video’s The 1% Club


The new U.S. adaptation of The 1% Club has secured an exclusive telecast on FOX, which will broadcast each episode after its debut on Prime Video.

The series based on the hit international format, produced by BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and Magnum Media, will premiere on Prime Video in the U.S. and Canada. Patton Oswalt (The Goldbergs, A.P. Bio, Ratatouille) has been named the host.

The original series debuted on ITV in the U.K., and the BBC Studios-distributed format has sold in the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, France, Israel, Spain and Turkey, with Mexico and Greece set to come.

“Patton exudes all attributes of an iconic host, and we are thrilled he has joined us for the first ever game show on Prime Video,” said Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD originals, unscripted and targeted programming at Amazon MGM Studios. “Patton’s distinct combination of warmth and wit made him the ideal person to bring this addictive format to life for North American Prime Video customers and Fox’s linear audience. In addition to our creative passion for the series, The 1% Club marks a strategic business growth opportunity, expanding our ad-friendly content portfolio and allowing us to explore unique dual premiere strategies. Thanks to FOX, BBC Studios, Patton, Andy and Dean for being such great partners as we break new ground.”

“As a proud member of the 90%, it’s a privilege to host this show,” said Oswalt.

“FOX Entertainment is excited to partner with innovative companies and pedigree talent to deliver premium content like The 1% Club,” said Rob Wade, CEO of FOX Entertainment. “By teaming up with Amazon, we effectively showcase the complementary value of linear and streaming audiences through this differentiated launch strategy.”

“Patton is an absolute comedic force with an unrivaled ability to connect to audiences and contestants alike, and we are beyond thrilled to have him aboard hosting our U.S. series,” said Ryan O’Dowd, executive VP for entertainment and music at BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and The 1% Club executive producer for BBC Studios. “From the very beginning, the entire Amazon team has displayed a deep, unwavering passion for the creative heart of the show, a steadfast commitment, and a collaborative spirit that makes us incredibly excited about this new partnership. The opportunity to broadcast our series in an exclusive window on FOX makes this collective launch that much more undeniably powerful.”
