Decrypt had more on the new NFT studio:
According to Fox, the marketplace “will curate and sell digital goods, ranging from NFTs of one-of-a-kind character and background art, and GIFs, as well as tokens that provide exclusive social experiences to engage and reward super fans.”
The NFT studio’s debut will align with the premiere of “Krapoplis,” a new animated series helmed by “Rick and Morty” and “Community” creator Dan Harmon.
“As an advertiser-focused, artist-first and animation-obsessed company, Fox is going to take advertisers into the world of blockchain-powered tokens, including NFTs,” Collier said. “And Dan’s series, currently entitled ‘Krapopolis,’ will be the first-ever curated entirely on the blockchain. And just as we’re doing this for our own animation, we will also help your brands connect directly with fans and enthusiasts through NFTs.”
Fox will create NFT studio to plan and sell digital products.

Bitcoin.com had more details:
The Fox CEO noted that Harmon is working on another television series called “Krapopolis” which is “centered on a flawed family of humans, gods, and monsters that tries to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.” The new show will be crafted with blockchain technology and will be the first television series to do so, Collier insists.
“Dan’s series, currently entitled Krapopolis, will be the first-ever curated entirely on the blockchain,” Collier said during his interview. “And just as we’re doing this for our own animation, we will also help your brands connect directly with fans and enthusiasts through NFTs. With and for you, Fox will help art meet brands meet technology.” Moreover, since co-creating the animated series “Rick and Morty” with Roiland, Harmon hasn’t crafted a new show since 2013.
Michael Thorn, president of entertainment for Fox Entertainment, is pleased with Harmon’s return.
