Regency Enterprises is a Los Angeles-based entertainment company formed by Arnon Milchan and Joseph P. Grace. It was founded in 1982 as Embassy International Pictures, but the company name changed to avoid confusion with Norman Lear's Embassy Pictures (known from 1975 to 1982 as Avco Embassy Pictures). Its most successful film is Mr. & Mrs. Smith, released on June 10, 2005.

New Regency

New Regency Productions is a production company founded in 1991 by Arnon Milchan and a subsidiary of Regency Enterprises.[1] It is located on the 20th Century Fox lot. New Regency primarily produces movies, and has at least 100 movies to its credit.

In September 1997, Milchan signed a 15-year distribution pact with 20th Century Fox worldwide in all media outside of foreign TV rights, ending a previous association with Warner Bros. Fox's parent company News Corporation (now 21st Century Fox) funneled $200 million in New Regency, in exchange for a 20% stake in the company.[2] In 2011, Fox and New Regency extended the pact, to expire in 2022.[3]

Regency Television

Regency Television is a joint venture between Regency Enterprises and Fox Television Studios founded in 1998. Regency's best-known TV shows include The WB sci-fi drama Roswell and the Fox sitcoms Malcolm in the Middle and The Bernie Mac Show.

On July 17, 2007, Regency Television shut down all production and closed its business after nearly ten years in operation.[4] On January 17, 2011, New Regency announced a return to the television business after 20th Century Fox extended its distribution business with Regency until 2022.[5]
