February proves to be an extremely exciting month for FOX Philippines as the channel announces the premiere of several hit US television series. Several FOX shows are returning to the channel, including The Walking Dead
, and WWE’s wrestling programs, while new shows Legion
and 24: Legacy
are set to bring more prestige to an already strong lineup. To promote this huge boost in programming, FOX is teaming up with Philippine escape room game Breakout to host an experience called FOXtreme Breakout, which will bring elements of these shows closer to viewers in a unique escape room challenge from Feb. 9 to 12 at Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City.
The new and returning television shows premiering this month on FOX all have day and date telecasts based on exciting, adrenaline-pumping content. Legion is based on a Marvel comic book that follows the life of David Haller, who is diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder and soon discovers that he’s a powerful mutant—probably one of the most powerful that’s ever lived. Starring Dan Stevens
(Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey
), this 10-episode limited series premieres in the US on Feb. 8 and in the Philippines on FOX at 8 p.m. on Feb. 9.
Another exciting release is 24: Legacy, a spin-off of 24. The series stars Corey Hawkins
and Miranda Otto
. It follows the story of Eric Carter, an ex-Army Ranger sought by a terrorist group. He tries to stop one of the largest attacks to potentially happen in the US.
This heart-stopping 12-episode series will show exclusively on FOX at 8 p.m. tonight, after its US premiere on Feb. 5.
Meanwhile, the highly successful series The Walking Dead returns on Feb 13 at 11:35 a.m. simultaneously with the US, with an 8:55 p.m. replay. This mid-season premiere continues the explosive Season 7 of the zombie apocalypse-based show. Billions is also returning for its 13-episode second season on Feb. 20 at 9:50 p.m. exclusively on the channel.
FOX is also the Philippines’ Home of Wrestling, with its wide roster of WWE titles such as Raw, SmackDown,
and Royal Rumble.
FOX’s local production Wrestling Gods
adds to the channel’s testosterone-fueled wrestling mania when it premieres at 9:50 p.m. on Feb.14.
, director and head of Content & Marketing at FOX Networks Group Philippines, said, “The addition of new shows like Legion and 24: Legacy along with the return of hit shows like The Walking Dead, Billions, and our favorite WWE programs to FOX make it clear that we are determined to deliver the most exciting, action-packed US entertainment content to our viewers. We’re excited to share these shows and engage with FOX’s viewers at the FOXtreme Breakout game in Uptown Mall this month so that we can whet their appetites for the amazing shows they’ll see on their TV screens soon.”
