Fox Sport's "Lunch w/Benefits"
RUBIK'S CUBED: The show likely to create the most buzz is "Cubed," where three "office drones" talk about sex and sports, often using foul language. Fox' release says, "Nothing is off limits as this show plans to push the line as far as it will go. ... The easily offended would be advised to surf elsewhere." Fox is selling ads to support the show and will integrate them using pre-roll and product integration. So far, three of the five shows have sold, though Husvar would not identify which shows or advertisers have climbed on board. Fox Sports' George Greenberg and Judy Hoang and FoxSports.com' Ed Bunnell will be part of the digital entertainment unit, reporting to Husvar.
