Peter Rice

Long known as a favorite of News Corp chairman Rupert Murdoch and rising star at Twentieth Century Fox, Peter Rice was promoted two years ago from running motion picture subsidiary Fox Searchlight to being in charge of entertainment for Fox broadcast network and FX channel. Now he's taking over all programming as chairman and chief executive of the Fox Networks Group, including Fox Sports and Fox International and National Geographic channels. At television, only the Fox News operation is still run by someone else: Roger Ailes.

Will the studio be next? Fox motion pictures has long been run by seasoned co-chairmen Jim Gianopulos and Tom Rothman (who also rose in the ranks from running Searchlight). When their time, for whatever reason, inevitably comes up, Rice will be ready to take over.
