Universal Television is the television production subsidiary of the NBCUniversal Television Group and by extension, the production arm of NBC, both divisions of NBCUniversal.



Historically, the studio has its main roots in two studios:

  • NBC Productions - founded 1947, and renamed NBC Studios in 1996
  • Revue Productions (founded in 1943, renamed Revue Studios in 1958, reincorporated as (the original) Universal Television in 1963, renamed Studios USA Television in 1998, and finally renamed Universal Network Television in 2002).

In 2004 NBC Studios and Universal Network Television merged, forming NBC Universal Television Studio, which was renamed Universal Media Studios in 2007, and finally Universal Television in 2011.
