Fox Look will be offering international format rights to America’s Most Wanted (AMW) at NATPE, with AMW host John Walsh in attendance.

The series, the longest running show on Fox, has helped capture over 1,000 criminals and recovered over 60 abducted children in its 23 year run. In the past 11 years, AMW has been rated number one in the Saturday night 18-49 demographic.

At NATPE, Fox Look is offering the local format rights (both semi- or fully localized versions), and  finished episodes from AMW’s 2010-11 season on FOX (series 24; 26 x 60 mins). Additionally, a new “Best Of” compilation series,  World’s Most Wanted (26 x 30 mins),  is available.

David Lyle (pictured), president of Fox LOOK, said in a release, “America’s Most Wanted is the most successful unscripted entertainment show in the history of the genre. It’s not just a compelling show on air, but also a real force for good. And if you can do good and win ratings at the same time, could you ask for anything more?”
