Discovery and AT&T Close WarnerMedia Transaction

Combination of Discovery and WarnerMedia Creates Warner Bros. Discovery, Global Leader in Entertainment and Streaming

Warner Bros. Discovery to Begin Trading on the Nasdaq as “WBD” on Monday, April 11

NEW YORK and DALLAS, April 8, 2022 – Today Discovery, Inc. and AT&T Inc.* (NYSE:T) announced that they have closed their transaction to combine the WarnerMedia business with Discovery. The combination creates a premier standalone global media and entertainment company, Warner Bros. Discovery, Inc., which will begin trading on the Nasdaq with the start of trading on Monday, April 11, under the new ticker symbol “WBD.”

Warner Bros. Discovery will create and distribute the world’s most differentiated and complete portfolio of content, brands and franchises across television, film and streaming. The new company combines WarnerMedia’s premium entertainment, sports and news assets with Discovery’s leading non-fiction and international entertainment and sports businesses, including Discovery Channel, discovery+, Warner Bros. Entertainment, CNN, CNN+, DC, Eurosport, HBO, HBO Max, HGTV, Food Network, Investigation Discovery, TLC, TNT, TBS, truTV, Travel Channel, MotorTrend, Animal Planet, Science Channel, New Line Cinema, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Turner Classic Movies and others.

“Today’s announcement marks an exciting milestone not just for Warner Bros. Discovery but for our shareholders, our distributors, our advertisers, our creative partners and, most importantly, consumers globally,” said David Zaslav, Warner Bros. Discovery chief executive officer. “With our collective assets and diversified business model, Warner Bros. Discovery offers the most differentiated and complete portfolio of content across film, television and streaming. We are confident that we can bring more choice to consumers around the globe while fostering creativity and creating value for shareholders. I can’t wait for both teams to come together to make Warner Bros. Discovery the best place for impactful storytelling.”

“We are at the dawn of a new age of connectivity, and today marks the beginning of a new era for AT&T,” said John Stankey, AT&T chief executive officer. “With the close of this transaction, we expect to invest at record levels in our growth areas of 5G and fiber, where we have strong momentum, while we work to become America’s best broadband company. At the same time, we’ll sharpen our focus on returns to shareholders. We expect to invest for growth, strengthen our balance sheet and reduce our debt, all while continuing to pay an attractive dividend that puts us among the top dividend paying stocks in America.

“In WarnerMedia, Discovery inherits a talented and innovative team and a dynamic growing and global company that is well positioned to lead the transformation that’s taking place across media and entertainment, direct-to-consumer distribution and technology. The combination of the two companies will strengthen WarnerMedia’s established and leading position in media and streaming. And our shareholders will now have a significant stake in Warner Bros. Discovery and its future successes. We look forward to seeing what the WBD team accomplishes with these industry-leading assets.”

Under terms of the agreement, which was structured as a Reverse Morris Trust transaction, at close AT&T received $40.4 billion in cash and WarnerMedia’s retention of certain debt. Additionally, shareholders of AT&T received 0.241917 shares of WBD for each share of AT&T common stock they held at close. As a result, AT&T shareholders received 1.7 billion shares of WBD, representing 71% of WBD shares on a fully diluted basis. Discovery’s existing shareholders own the remainder of the new company. In addition to their new shares of WBD common stock, AT&T shareholders continue to hold the same number of shares of AT&T common stock they held immediately prior to close.

TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” Returns with Seven Standout Couples





TLC’s “90 Day Fiance” Returns with Seven Standout Couples
The show’s ninth season premieres on TLC and discovery+ Sunday, April 17 at 8:00/7:00c.
[via press release from TLC]
TLC’S “90 DAY FIANCÉ” RETURNS WITH SEVEN STANDOUT COUPLES

— New Season Premieres Sunday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – The original 90 Day series that started it all and sparked obsessive conversation around the world is back! Seven couples have 90 days to figure out whether their love can go the distance when the ninth season of 90 DAY FIANCÉ premieres on TLC and discovery+ Sunday, April 17 at 8PM ET/PT. Last year, 90 DAY FIANCÉ was the #1 unscripted show with all key adult and women demos, and since the show’s original debut in 2014, 4.3 billion hours of 90 Day content have been consumed. The show has truly taken the globe by storm, having filmed in 46 countries, aired in 181 territories and even been broadcast in 39 different languages.

Following K-1 visa rules, the couples will have 90 days to wed before the visa expires and their fiancé is sent back to their home country. The pressure is on and with travel guidelines more challenging than ever, there’s even more at stake with these international love stories. This season, couples aren’t just navigating unique lifestyle and cultural changes when arriving in America – many of them must also adjust to parenthood and nontraditional family lifestyles. And while absence makes the heart grow fonder, personalities and temperaments have changed and not always for the best… will these seven couples make it to the altar?

Meet this season’s couples:

Emily, 29 (Salina, KS) and Kobe, 34 (Cameroon)

Emily left her small town for the bustling city of Xi’an, China to teach English. While out clubbing one night, she met Kobe and the connection was instant. Within two weeks, their one-night stand turned into an engagement, and a pregnancy followed soon after. When Emily returned to Kansas, they both assumed Kobe’s visa would be quickly approved, but the pandemic delayed him by almost two years. During that time, Emily gave birth to their son and has been raising and supporting him on her own, while Kobe has not even had the chance to meet him yet. The pair is ready to reunite and become a family, but will their relationship be the same given all the physical, geographical and familial changes since that fateful night out in China?

Ari, 30 (Princeton, NJ) and Bini, 31 (Ethiopia)

Viewers first met Ari and Bini on 90 DAY FIANCÉ: THE OTHER WAY, and after several seasons of relationship hurdles, the couple is giving it one last try in the United States. The pair first met crossing the street in Ethiopia and the rest is history: Ari found out she was pregnant and moved to Ethiopia to be with Bini. But when their son, Avi, needed surgery, Ari moved back to the United States, and the distance, amplified by Bini’s poor communication skills, strained their relationship. In spite of it all, Ari and Bini plan to wed, but will religion, family introductions and Bini’s past get in the way?

Kara, 29 (Charlottesville, VA) and Guillermo, 23 (Venezuela)

Guillermo, a Venezuelan living in the Dominican Republic, caught Kara’s eye while she was on a work trip there. The two kept in touch after she returned home, not thinking it was anything serious, but that all changed when Kara’s job asked her to relocate to the Dominican Republic. Things escalated from there – Kara moved in with Guillermo upon her arrival, and an engagement quickly followed, raising eyebrows amongst Kara’s skeptical family and friends. Due to the pandemic, Kara moved back home, and the two have been separated for nine months. With his visa approved, Guillermo is now set to move to Charlottesville, but will their whirlwind romance be able to survive Kara’s partying habits and Guillermo’s insecurities?

Bilal, 42 (Kansas City, MO) and Shaeeda, 37 (Trinidad and Tobago)

The sparks flew instantly when Bilal and Shaeeda finally met in person after connecting online months before: in fact, Bilal proposed after spending just one week together! Their lives couldn’t be more different, as Bilal is a divorced father of two while Shaeeda still lives at home with her parents. Shaeeda is ready to start a family of her own with Bilal, but he isn’t sure he wants any more children. On top of that, Bilal wants Shaeeda to sign a prenup, causing a further rift between the two. Will the pressures of moving to the United States, taking care of a family, and fostering a healthy relationship prevent them from walking down the aisle?

Jibri, 28 (Rapid City, SD) and Miona, 23 (Serbia)

It was a picture-perfect moment: Jibri noticed Miona in the audience of his band’s show in North Serbia. They’ve been together ever since, and Jibri proposed during one of their trips around the world. Miona can’t wait to move to the United States and envisions a lavish life in Los Angeles, but Jibri recently moved back to his family’s home in South Dakota. Will Miona be able to accept a life with Jibiri in a small town, or will the strains of living with his family, combined with her jealousy, prove to be too much?

Yvette, 48 (Albuquerque, NM) and Mohamed, 25 (Egypt)

Despite a 23-year age gap, Mohamed slid into Yvette’s DMs after noticing their shared love of fitness. The flirtation became an engagement when Yvette traveled to Egypt to meet Mohamed in person. At home, Yvette has a twelve-year-old son with special needs, meaning Mohamed is going to be closer in age to his future stepson than to his wife if they say “I do.” On top of that, the culture norms in the States are different from what Mohamed is used to, and he’s not sure he’s comfortable with the independent and carefree way Yvette lives her life. Will the realities of a life together be too much for this couple’s relationship to survive?

Patrick, 31 (Austin, TX) and Thaís, 25 (Brazil)

When Patrick traveled to Brazil to reconnect with his father’s side of the family, he decided to look for a Portuguese teacher on dating apps. Thaís swiped right and was more than happy to help him out. Patrick courted Thaís over several trips to Brazil, winning her heart, showering her with lavish gifts and eventually proposing. Despite never having been to the United States, Thaís is excited to start a new life with Patrick, but will he be able to give her the extravagant life she’s used to in Brazil? And will the deep emotional wounds Patrick sustained from his first divorce cause him to think twice about his pending nuptials?

TLC, THE DEFINITIVE DESTINATION FOR UNFORGETTABLE MEDICAL TRANSFORMATION PROGRAMMING, ANNOUNCES TWO NEW LIMITED SERIES: “STUCK” AND “BODY PARTS”

— STUCK to premiere on TLC on Wednesday, February 16 at 10pm ET/PT following the season premiere of DR. PIMPLE POPPER —

— BODY PARTS to premiere on TLC on Wednesday, April 6 at 10pm ET/PT —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Nobody does extreme, emotional and heart-palpitating medical programming like TLC. Home to hit medical series such as DR. PIMPLE POPPER, MY 600-LB LIFE and MY FEET ARE KILLING ME, viewers flock to the network for unmatched stories of transformation, rare medical conditions and outstanding medical personalities. Beginning this February, TLC, the #1 network for W25-54 and W18-49 in 2020 and 2021, will introduce two new limited medical series: STUCK and BODY PARTS.

“We can’t wait to introduce Allison Vest, an endearing anaplastologist who will have patients and viewers in tears as she transforms lives using her gifted skills in art and science to recreate missing BODY PARTS,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “And in another vein, our new immersive medical series STUCK promises a rush of anticipation as doctors try to pry out objects that have invaded patient’s bodies in places they should very clearly not be STUCK.”

In the new medical series STUCK, imagine a high heel through the face, a bug lodged deeply inside an ear, an arrow through the wrist – you get the idea. Cameras are given access behind the surgical curtain to witness these particularly jaw-dropping medical conundrums and the incredible lengths that medical professionals go to fix them. Viewers will witness foreign body extractions and removal procedures as they happen in real time, as well as interviews with patients, doctors and medical staff who will reveal the extraordinary details behind how these accidents took place. From inside several different medical facilities around the country, STUCK promises the wildest, most fascinating and downright unbelievable interventions required to free objects lodged inside of peoples’ bodies, with no easy exit in sight.

Our next project, BODY PARTS, features certified anaplastologist Allison Vest who has over 20 years of experience. For the first time, this top-of-her-field professional is opening the doors to her practice and sharing the most devastating cases of patients who have lost major body parts, giving them a second chance by creating amazing, realistic prosthetics to help restore their lives to normalcy. Oftentimes, her prosthetics go undetected thanks to the skillful combination of skin color correction, hair placement, and even delicately painted veins. But, for her patients, there’s nothing discreet about the impact these parts have, from a woman who lost her hands after an extreme case of pneumonia to a boy missing both ears after a dog attack. Enter Allison’s body part workshop to experience a world of wonder, hope, healing and strength.

STUCK is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment for TLC.

BODY PARTS is produced by Lucky Dog Films for TLC.

FOUR FABULOUS, LARGER-THAN-LIFE BEST FRIENDS WORK TOGETHER TO CHANGE THEIR LIVES IN A NEW TLC SERIES, “1000-LB BEST FRIENDS”

— New Series Premieres on TLC and discovery+ on Monday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Building on the success of 1000-LB SISTERS, which continues to deliver ratings gold with its highest-rated season ever, TLC today announced its newest transformation series, 1000-LB BEST FRIENDS. Vannessa and Meghan are larger-than-life best friends, and along with their pals Tina and Ashely, they are battling obesity with heart and humor. This gregarious girl gang will embark on a journey of sisterhood, weight loss, and self-discovery. 1000-LB BEST FRIENDS premieres on TLC and discovery+ on Monday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT.

“The ratings success of 1000-lb Sisters has made one thing clear – our audience loves personal journeys of transformation featuring authentic, bold and very boisterous personalities, which is why we’re excited to introduce this brand-new series, 1000-lb Best Friends,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “This show is about weight loss and leading a healthier lifestyle just as much as it is about a tight-knit group of girlfriends that love to have a good time. By the end of the first episode, viewers will be asking themselves if their friend group has a Vannessa, a Meghan, a Tina or an Ashely.”

Vannessa and Meghan, whom viewers first met on TOO LARGE, were bullied for their weight all the way back in middle school and ever since then, they have had each other’s backs. When Meghan peaked at almost 600-lbs, they decided it was time to take control of their lives and pursue weight loss surgery. Meghan qualified while Vannessa didn’t, however Meghan’s weight loss has stalled out since she went ahead with the surgery. Power comes in numbers and now with Tina and Ashely, they are making a pact and recommitting to their original goal to turn their lives around. Ashely previously underwent weight-loss surgery, but she’s put back on all the weight she lost and is once again pursuing surgery to get back on track. Tina, on the other hand, isn’t ready to take on the risks of surgery, so she plans to lose the excess weight on her own.

From camping to swimming in the ocean, these friends are determined to get out of the sedentary habits that have led them to where they are now. Whether it’s exercise, doctors’ appointments or therapy sessions, they’ll rely on each other to get through it all. But with four big personalities, they are bound to ruffle each other’s feathers. Will the gang be able to overcome their insecurities and self-doubt in time to attend their high school reunion as a fiercely fabulous, united front?

Viewers can go behind-the-scenes in the digital midform series 1000-lb Best Friends: Inside the Episode, premiering on discovery+ and TLCgo, where Meghan & Vannessa sit down, spill the tea, and provide commentary on all episodes. Meghan & Vannessa are also giving their two cents on high fashion, trendy hairstyles, and Gen Z slang in a hilarious social media series.

TLC CONTINUES GROWING THEIR TUESDAY NIGHT FAMILY LINEUP WITH NEW SERIES “I AM SHAUNA RAE” PREMIERING ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 11 AT 10PM ET/PT

— New Series Follows the Life of 22-Year-Old and 3’10 Shauna Rae, Whose Growth was Stunted Following a Rare Form of Brain Cancer —

(Los Angeles, Calif.) – Shauna Rae may look like a child, but she desperately wants to be treated like an adult. Premiering on Tuesday, January 11 at 10PM ET/PT, I AM SHAUNA RAE follows Shauna as she navigates the extraordinary challenge of trying to live a normal adult life despite her appearance. Diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer at six months old, Shauna’s treatment allowed for remission, but resulted in a side effect no one predicted – she stopped growing. The chemotherapy made her pituitary gland almost dormant, leaving Shauna with a childlike appearance and standing at only 3 feet and 10 inches tall– the average size of an 8-year-old. Except, Shauna is 22.

“When I first heard about Shauna Rae, I couldn’t stop asking questions. I was fascinated by her life and it became quite clear TLC needed to tell her story,” said Howard Lee, President of TLC Streaming and Network Originals. “Similar to so many series on TLC, hers is one with its own unique set of challenges and she faces those with courage, heart, and a punch of sass.”

Shauna is determined not to let her size stop her from trying to live her best life, even though by appearances, the world has trouble seeing her as an adult. With her zest for life and wicked sense of humor, Shauna wants to assert her independence and explores dating, driving, and moving out of her parents’ house. All of this with the help of her supportive and hilarious family, who only have her best interest in mind, but can sometimes be overly protective. Viewers will experience life through Shauna’s eyes, as she gives an unfiltered and honest view of what life is like.
