HDV video to 59.94

I am hoping this is an easy question. I have footage that was shot on a Sony HDV-Z1U. The FCP sequence that was used to edit it is a standard HDV 1080i60 timeline.

FOX wants the show to be
Compression MPEG‐2 or MPEG‐4
1280 x 720 (720p)
Frame Rate 59.94
Bit Rate 50 Mbps

What is the best way to accomplish this? I want to use XDCAM export to do this just not sure what to do with the frame rates?

Was this something shot before you knew their shooting and delivery specs? For example, a show that was acquired by FOX? Because you can use that to explain that your footage isn't 60fps. You can make it 720p 60...but there will be repeated frames. Can't avoid that.

What I would do is make a ProRes 720p60 sequence, copy and paste the sequence into it...apply a smart Deinterlacer (nattress filters do this)...render, and then export. Now, do they want Op1A MXF in the XDCAM codec? Or do they want a QT file?
