Foxtel’s Executive Director of Television, Brian Walsh, today announced a newly created Arts and Music division.

Foxtel Arts, the dedicated HD Arts channel, and Foxtel’s suite of music channels – [V] HITS, MAX, Foxtel Smooth and CMC – will be managed by a joint team under newly appointed Group Channel Manager – Arts and Music Fraser Stark.

Brian Walsh said: “Foxtel is Australia’s only television provider providing the local music and arts industries with curated locally produced channels and we will continue to do so with the same passion, enthusiasm and excitement which we’ve been doing since 1995. Our music and arts offering is very important both to us and our customers and we are proud to be the home of music television with unique and specialised music brands and content that Australians love.”

“Fraser has done an exceptional job building and refining Foxtel Arts, since its launch last year; to become a channel like no other and we’re incredibly proud. His energy, imagination and commercial approach will build on the incredible talents of the Arts and Music team to provide a complete music and live performance offering for our subscribers.”

Fraser Stark said: “I am incredibly excited about this new opportunity and there is great synergy between the Arts and Music brands. I look forward to leading the strong and passionate music team to continue providing these great channels for Foxtel’s viewers.”

Vice Principals
New HBO comedy starring Danny McBride premieres Mondays from August 22 at 8.30pm only on The Comedy Channel

Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill (co-creators of HBO’s Eastbound & Down), Vice Principals is a dark comedy series that tells the story of southern suburban school, North Jackson High, and the two people who almost run it – the Vice Principals.

Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down, This Is The End, Tropic Thunder) and Walton Goggins (Justified, The Hateful Eight) star as Neal Gamby and Lee Russell, a pair of ambitious administrators waged in an epic power struggle to ascend to the top spot after the long-time Principal (Bill Murray) steps down to look after his terminally ill wife.

However both VPs plans are foiled when the school board installs a replacement Principal choosing neither for the role. When Dr. Belinda Brown (Kimberly Hebert Gregory) swoops in to claim the job, Gamby and Russell put their mutual disdain aside and forge an unholy alliance.

Operating by the adage that “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” the unlikely pair team up for an all-out, take-no-prisoners effort to bring down Dr. Brown, the only person who may in fact have the school’s best interests at heart. The VPs will go to extreme lengths to overthrow their new boss – no-one is safe and nothing is off limits.

Joining McBride and Hill as Executive Producer and Director is long time collaborator David Gordon Green (Eastbound and Down, Pineapple Express).

The nine episodes in Season One of Vice Principals premiere Mondays from August 22 at 8.30pm on The Comedy Channel, exclusive to Foxtel.
