WarnerMedia & Comcast Announce Renewal of Carriage Agreement for Popular Basic Cable Networks

The Companies Also Agree to Distribute CNN+ on Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex Devices and XClass TVs

WarnerMedia and Comcast Cable announced today the companies have renewed their carriage agreement to distribute WarnerMedia’s lineup of cable networks including TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, TCM, truTV, HLN and CNN en Español plus on-demand and TVE content to Xfinity TV customers. In addition, this includes the first distribution agreement for CNN+, which WarnerMedia is launching as a streaming subscription service in first quarter. Comcast plans to make CNN+ available to its Xfinity customers via its Xfinity X1, Xfinity Flex, and XClass TV platforms later in 2022.

The multi-year cable network carriage agreement furthers a longstanding distribution relationship between the two companies.

“We’re so pleased to continue our longstanding relationship with Comcast and deliver best-in-class storytelling, essential news and premium sports to millions of customers,” said Scott Miller, Executive Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs, WarnerMedia. “It’s an exciting time in our industry as we continue putting consumers at the center of where and how they are informed and entertained. Comcast’s position as both a Pay TV provider and app platform complements our foundational business of linear TV and emerging streaming businesses.”

“WarnerMedia has been a terrific partner through the years, and we are very pleased to provide our Xfinity customers with access to their content across our industry-leading platforms,” said Rebecca Heap, Senior Vice President, Consumer Products & Propositions, Comcast Cable.

WarnerMedia’s portfolio of cable networks includes some of the most popular entertainment, news, sports, kids and young adult programming in the industry. TNT and TBS ended 2021 as the #1 and #2 rated ad-supported cable entertainment networks among adults 18-49, and CNN had its second most-watched year ever in 2021, ending as a top five network in all of cable in all dayparts. Additionally, Turner Sports is an industry leader in the delivery of its premium sports content, including expansive partnerships with the NBA, Major League Baseball, the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship and, new in 2021, the National Hockey League.

CNN+ will feature original, live, on demand and interactive programming as a standalone direct-to-consumer service with offerings that are separate and distinct from CNN, CNN International, HLN and CNN en Español linear TV channels. At launch, 8-10 hours of live, daily programming offering topical deep dives and lifestyle content will live alongside a full slate of additive and differentiated originals, including the recently announced series, Eva Longoria: Searching for Mexico, and a deep library of non-fiction, long form programming such as Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown. CNN+ will also feature a thriving community component for fans to connect directly with anchors and experts in real time conversations about the issues that matter most to them.

Xfinity delivers all the best live, on demand and streaming entertainment to customers via its X1 and Flex devices, all accessible and discoverable with the award-winning Xfinity Voice Remote. X1 and Flex customers can access WarnerMedia programming by saying the name of a channel (like “TCM” or “TNT” or “HBO”) or streaming services (like “HBO Max”) in the voice remote, or by saying the name of a desired title from the WarnerMedia channels or streaming services.

TNT’S “CLAWS” PARTNERS WITH WARNER RECORDS STAR DREAMDOLL FOR “CLAWS”-THEMED ORIGINAL SINGLE, “OH SHHH”





TNT’S “CLAWS” PARTNERS WITH WARNER RECORDS STAR DREAMDOLL FOR “CLAWS”-THEMED ORIGINAL SINGLE, “OH SHHH”

New Music Video for “Oh Shhh” Drops Today
in Anticipation of the Final Season of “Claws”
Premiering Sunday, December 19 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Watch “OH SHHH” music video here.

LOS ANGELES, DECEMBER 17, 2021 – Today, Bronx rap star and social media juggernaut DreamDoll, in partnership with TNT, is debuting an original “Claws”-themed single, “Oh Shhh,” from her forthcoming project (District 18/Warner Records), along with a new “Claws” music video. This collaboration sets the world of “Claws” into a song that embodies the series’ boundary-pushing female characters and amplifies the show themes of women finding their power, boss ladies taking charge and – of course – fierce nails.

DreamDoll shared, “This was truly an honor considering how much I love Claws. Like me, these bad-ass-boss-bitches understand sometimes you have to make certain sacrifices to achieve your dream.” On creating the new single, she mentioned, “I wanted it to sound familiar yet new, with a feel-good vibe. After going through a couple of potential tracks, I landed on this beat which samples Fergie’s ‘London Bridge.’ I’m so excited that I can finally talk about it. It’s been so hard to hold it in. I hope my fans and fans of the show will love it.”

This new release continues the rapid ascent of DreamDoll, who’s built momentum with a string of well-received singles like “You Know My Body” featuring Capella Grey, “Ah, Ah, Ah” with Fivio Foreign and “Different Freestyle,” the colorful videos for which have contributed to her 25 million YouTube views to date. She’s a press darling who’s been featured in Nylon, Office, SPIN, and Allure, and gained a large fan base online with her freestyles and fashion content that continue to impress her 1.3 million TikTok and 4.4 million Instagram followers.

The highly anticipated fourth and final season of Claws airs with a two-hour premiere on Sunday, December 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TNT. The third season of “Claws” ranked as a top 10 cable drama in 2019.

“Claws” is a midnight-dark, wickedly funny meditation on female badness set in a South Florida nail salon. The series follows Niecy Nash-Betts’ Desna Simms, who, alongside her crew of manicurists from the Nail Artisans of Manatee County salon, rises to power in the crime world to claim her share of cash and respect. It’s the story of hardworking women trying to get by in this economy, set against the surreal, bright, gritty landscape of Florida and the luscious, absurd, extreme excesses of the crime world. In addition to Nash-Betts, “Claws” stars Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Kevin Rankin, Jason Antoon, with Harold Perrineau, and Dean Norris.

“Claws” is executive produced by Janine Sherman Barrois, Rashida Jones, Will McCormack, series creator Eliot Laurence and showrunners Sharon Lee Watson and Emily Silver. The series is produced for TNT by Jones and McCormack’s Le Train Train in association with Warner Bros. Television.

LOS ANGELES (November 3, 2021) – The TNets (TBS, TNT, truTV) bolster its scripted programming slate with a new series pickup and a raft of renewals for 2022. TBS has greenlit “Kill the Orange-Faced Bear” to a ten-episode series; in addition, “Miracle Workers” has been picked up for a fourth season. Currently in its third season, truTV’s “Tacoma FD” has also been renewed for a blazing fourth season.

TBS has set Thursday, January 20 for the season seven premiere of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” and Monday, January 24 for the season 17 premiere of “American Dad!”. The third season of “Snowpiercer” will premiere on TNT on Monday, January 24.

Brett Weitz, General Manager, TNT, TBS, and truTV said: “I’ve loved the idea for Kill the Orange-Faced Bear from the minute we heard the pitch and felt that it was a dead center shot at the target of popular absurdist humor we’ve become known for. Romanski and our brilliant cast bring a fresh concept to life that’s right for our fans. We take great pride in all the series we create and all we have the honor of renewing — both scripted and unscripted. The storytellers and stars we feature are quite simply the best partners in helping us continue to carefully build foundational connections with our loyal audience.”

Adrienne O’Riain and Sam Linsky, Co-Heads of Scripted Programming, TBS, TNT, truTV said: “Miracle Workers and Tacoma FD never fail to deliver good times, good laughs, and passionate fans. We love the unique sensibility and distinctive, bold comedy of these shows. The fact that they continue to resonate so strongly with audiences speaks to the dedication of their creators and their brilliant network executives.”

The TNets have had a slew of successful launches this year including #1 premieres for “Go-Big Show,” “Wipeout,” and “Chad.” TNT and TBS remain Cable’s #1 and #2 entertainment networks and truTV joins as the Top 30 Cable Network among the 200-channel universe.

“Kill the Orange-Faced Bear” is a ten-episode comedy about one man’s epic revenge journey after a bear eats his girlfriend. The cast lineup includes Damon Wayans Jr. as Hank, the charming, funny and grieving man who’s hell-bent on tracking down Brenda the bear; Jessy Hodges as Jamie, the twin sister of Hank’s late girlfriend; Alex Karpovsky as Ronnie, an oddball park ranger; and Nate Torrence as Murray, Hank’s best friend. The voice cast lineup includes Sarah Silverman as Brenda, the sarcastic badass grizzly bear who attacked and ate Hank’s girlfriend; Nicole Byer as Pauline, a bear with perfect fur and perfect nails who uses her feminine wiles to seduce Brenda’s husband; and Sam Richardson as Steve, the charmingly idiotic bear with a dangerous habit of breaking into cars to steal snacks and beer.

The series is written, created and executive produced by Romanski (“Blue Mountain State”). Trevor Engelson and Steven Fisher of Underground (“Snowfall”), Alex Karpovsky, Jake Szymanski, and Damon Wayans Jr. also serve as executive producers. Jake Szymanski directed the pilot.

Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi are back for a fourth installment of “Miracle Workers.” Each season, the anthology comedy series features the same all-star cast playing new roles in a new setting – from angels in Heaven, to peasants in the Dark Ages, to settlers in the Old West. Where will the new season take them? You’ll have to watch to find out!

“Miracle Workers” is Cable’s #1 sitcom of 2021, reaching 18 million viewers to date. “Miracle Workers” was created by Simon Rich. The series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels. Dan Mirk and Robert Padnick serve as showrunners and are executive producers alongside Andrew Singer and Katy Jenson of Michaels’ Broadway Video, Simon Rich, Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi.

“Tacoma FD” is set in a firehouse in one of America’s rainiest cities. The firefighters keep themselves entertained with creative competitions, friendly first responder rivalries and no shortage of bizarre emergency calls. Chief Terry McConky (Kevin Heffernan) and Captain Eddie Penisi (Steve Lemme) lead the Station 24 firehouse antics, joined by the electic crew played by Eugene Cordero (Andy), Marcus Henderson (Granny), Gabriel Hogan (Ike), and Hassie Harrison (Lucy).

Season three of “Tacoma FD” is currently airing and has become one of the most DVR’d cable comedies in 2021. It ranks as a top 10 cable comedy and has reaching nearly 4 million viewers to date.

“Tacoma FD” is executive produced by Heffernan (“Super Troopers”) and Lemme (“Super Troopers”), David Miner and Greg Walter from 3 Arts Entertainment and Inman Young and Savey Cathey from A24 Studios.

“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” brings a unique perspective to stories inside the Beltway and beyond, from sexual harassment in the media to the “boyfriend loophole,” and from global warming to child marriage in the United States. “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” also travels the world to cover international stories, with segments from Rwanda, Jordan, Germany, Russia, Scotland, Mexico and Iraq. The series is executive produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Tony Hernandez of Jax Media, Miles Kahn, Alison Camillo, Kristen Bartlett and Mike Drucker.

“American Dad!” is Cable’s #3 comedy and centers on super patriotic CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn’t let him off so easily – and knows just how to push her father’s buttons. Hayley’s brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier.

The animated comedy from 20th Television Animation was created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, and is executive produced by co-showrunner Brian Boyle along with MacFarlane and Weitzman.

At the end of “Snowpiercer” season two, Layton (Daveed Diggs) and Ruth (Alison Wright), who were banished to Big Alice’s compost car, plotted to take back Snowpiercer. With the help of Javier (Roberto Urbina) and Alexandra (Rowan Blanchard), Layton and Ruth made it back to Snowpiercer and rallied with their supporters. Josie (Katie McGuiness) destroyed the Aquarium car, separating Snowpiercer’s head from the remaining 1,023 cars. Season three picks up with Layton (Diggs) and his inner circle commanding a small 10 car “pirate train” in search of Melanie (Jennifer Connelly) and a possible warm location to restart civilization; while back on Snowpiercer, Mr. Wilford (Sean Bean) is consolidating power, awaiting Layton’s return.

“Snowpiercer” is executive produced by Graeme Manson, Aubrey Nealon, Christoph Schrewe, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements, Matthew O’Connor, Ben Rosenblatt and Scott Derrickson, and the original film’s producers, including Bong Joon Ho, Miky Lee, Jinnie Choi, Park Chan-wook, Lee Tae-hun and Dooho Choi.
