WARNERMEDIA RESURRECTS LEGENDARY HANNA-BARBERA NAME FOR EMEA STUDIO

Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe Joins WarnerMedia’s Collective of Premiere Animation Studios Including Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios

Sam Register and Vanessa Brookman to Co-Lead Studio

Burbank, CA (April 7, 2021) – WarnerMedia is revitalizing one of the most storied names in animation history, establishing Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe (previously Cartoon Network Studios Europe, operating from Great Marlborough Productions) as its flagship television animation studio within EMEA. The new studio name was announced today by Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS) and Vanessa Brookman, Head of Kids EMEA, will co-lead the London-based studio.

Tom Ascheim said: “Earlier this year, we aligned two of the industry’s most powerful animation studios in Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios and their collaboration is already yielding some very exciting results. Now with Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe, these three brands represent some of the most talented artists, iconic characters and properties in the entire history of animation, making us more than formidable in the increasingly competitive global media landscape.”

The original studio, Hanna-Barbera Productions, was founded in 1957 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and became the first studio to have significant success with television animation. Many of the artistic styles, story-telling devices, production techniques and sound effects the studio pioneered more than 60 years ago are still used today. Hundreds of iconic characters were created by the studio, including Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Yogi Bear and more.

Alongside industry leaders WBA and CNS, Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe will further WarnerMedia’s global kids content strategy. Combining the tremendous creative talents of the animation community in the UK and across EMEA with the expertise and resources of the overall studios group, Hanna-Barbera Studios Europe is poised to be a unique entity in the world of animation. The studio will build on its award-winning pipeline of local productions including The Amazing World of Gumball, The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe, and Elliott from Earth while seeking out new production opportunities. The studio will focus on developing and producing new originals while embodying the spirit of its beloved library of characters, embracing the same high-quality, whimsical and classic look that enchanted Hanna-Barbera’s audiences for decades.

The studio is currently in development on The Amazing World of Gumball Movie (wt) – the upcoming feature-length TV movie based on the hit Cartoon Network series The Amazing World of Gumball, which follows the hilarious misadventures of Gumball Watterson and his goldfish best friend, Darwin.

Sam Register said: “There are few names in the animation industry that elicit such reverence and joy as Hanna-Barbera. Saturday mornings and series animation would not be the same without the work that came out of that studio and, as television is once again evolving, it’s only fitting that Hanna-Barbera returns to be an impactful part of it. I cannot wait to get started and I’m humbled at the opportunity to be creating cartoons under this banner again.”

Vanessa Brookman added: “It is an enormous privilege to be expanding our EMEA studio in the name of one of the most prestigious and beloved brands in animation history. Sam and I share an ambitious vision for growing our European pipeline of content, fueled by the talented team behind the award-winning success of our existing productions across the region. We look forward to bringing our kids and family audiences around the world even more exceptional content as we start this new chapter in our global animation strategy.”

This is WBTVG’s first overall pact with Harris-Lawrence and her first with any studio. Per Studio practice, terms were not disclosed.

The newly signed agreement continues WBTVG’s relationship with Harris-Lawrence, who serves as executive producer and showrunner of the Studio’s acclaimed, Peabody Award-winning lyrical drama “David Makes Man” for OWN, as well as executive producer/co-showrunner of the CBS drama “All Rise.”

This includes dramas, comedies and potential longform projects for streaming services (including WarnerMedia’s HBO Max) and cable, as well as the broadcast networks.

Dee Harris Lawrence said: “I am thrilled to be continuing my relationship with Warner Bros. They’ve been collaborative and supportive on both “David Makes Man” and “All Rise,” and I am looking forward to the next chapter of creating new content and amplifying visionary storytelling.”

For her work on the critically acclaimed first season of “David Makes Man,” Harris-Lawrence and the show’s creative team won the prestigious Peabody Award and were nominated for both a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Drama and an IFP Gotham Award for Breakthrough Series – Long Format. “David Makes Man” was also named to several critics’ year-end “best of television” lists for 2019, including Time Magazine.

Her other writing credits include “Any Day Now,” for which she won a PRISM Award; “Kevin Hill,” starring Taye Diggs; “New York Undercover” and more.

This includes projects for HBO Max, HBO and other WarnerMedia-affiliated outlets, as well as external streaming services, premium and basic cable channels, and the five broadcast networks.

Under this pact, Jefferson plans to create thoughtful character dramas and comedies, as well as affecting unscripted projects, a callback to his roots as a journalist.

Jefferson co-wrote (with Damon Lindelof) the critically beloved “This Extraordinary Being” episode of “Watchmen” and went on to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special. Jefferson was also nominated for the USC Scripter Award for Television and the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series for the episode.

Warner Bros. Television Group Signs Overall Deal with Artist, Author, Political Strategist and Black Lives Matter Co-Founder & Executive Director Patrisse Cullors

Warner Bros. Television Group Signs Overall Deal With Artist, Author, Political Strategist and Black Lives Matter Co-Founder & Executive Director Patrisse Cullors

Warner Bros. Television Group has signed an exclusive, multi-year overall deal with artist, author, political strategist, and Black Lives Matter Co-Founder & Executive Director Patrisse Cullors. This marks Cullors’ first pact with Warner Bros. and her first studio overall agreement. Per Studio practice, terms were not disclosed.

Under terms of the wide-ranging content partnership, Cullors will develop and produce original programming for all platforms: streaming services, cable, and the five broadcast networks. This includes but is not limited to live-action scripted drama and comedy series; longform/event series; unscripted docuseries; animated programming for co-viewing among kids, young adults and families; and original digital content.

For the last 20 years, Cullors has been on the frontlines of criminal justice reform and advocating for Black lives. Since co-founding the global Black Lives Matter social movement seven years ago in 2013, she has become one of the most influential thought leaders in American public life, focusing long-overdue attention on racial inequity throughout society and leading a global campaign against anti-Black racism. Through this agreement, WBTVG and Cullors will collaborate on programming that will amplify the work of the Black Lives Matter movement and will create further opportunities for prominent Black storytelling.

Quote from Patrisse Cullors: “Black voices, especially Black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling. Our perspective and amplification is necessary and vital to helping shape a new narrative for our families and communities. I am committed to uplifting these stories in my new creative role with the Warner Bros. family. As a long time community organizer and social justice activist, I believe that my work behind the camera will be an extension of the work I’ve been doing for the last twenty years. I look forward to amplifying the talent and voices of other Black creatives through my work.”

The agreement continues WBTVG’s long-standing commitment to collaborate with singular creators and distinctive voices, and to support their storytelling vision by taking advantage of the artistic freedoms that the Studio can provide – producing series for HBO Max, HBO and other WarnerMedia-affiliated channels, as well as external platforms not affiliated with the company.

Artist, organizer, educator, and popular public speaker Patrisse Cullors is a Los Angeles native, co-founder and executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, and founder of the Los Angeles-based grassroots organization Dignity and Power Now. Cullors’ work for Black Lives Matter recently received recognition in TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020 list and TIME Magazine’s 2020 list of the 100 Women of the Year. Cullors is a New York Times Best Selling author of “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir” (2018). She is also the faculty director of a new Social and Environmental Arts Practice MFA program that she developed at Arizona’s Prescott College. Cullors is a former staff writer at Freeform’s “Good Trouble” television series, as well as an actress on the show. For the last 20 years, Cullors has been on the frontlines of criminal justice reform and led Reform LA Jails’ “Yes on R” campaign, a ballot initiative that passed by a 73% landslide victory in March 2020.

Cullors is repped by CAA, 3 Arts, Sarah Weichel, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman

KYAC/Warner Bros. Animation Announce Preschool Action-Adventure Comedy Series “Batwheels” in Production for Cartoon Network and HBO Max

(Burbank, CA) – Buckle up and put on your capes! Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) is beginning production on “Batwheels,” a preschool animated action-adventure comedy series starring the most heroic and iconic vehicles from the DC universe. The upcoming series will air on Cartoon Network and HBO Max, as well as globally across all Cartoon Network platforms.

“‘Batwheels’ is the perfect show to headline our new foray into preschool,” said Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC). “I can’t wait for all the aspiring super heroes out there to meet this whole new batch of crime-fighters.”

They are a team of incredible crimefighters who have banded together to oppose evil, combat crime and clean up the streets of Gotham City. They are… okay, they’re NOT Batman and Robin. They’re the Batwheels – an awesome group of sentient super-powered crime-fighting vehicles defending Gotham City alongside Batman, Robin, Batgirl and a host of DC Super Heroes.

Having just been created by the Batcomputer, our heroes are essentially kids with little to no life experience. Led by Bam (The Batmobile), the Batwheels – Bibi (The Batgirl Cycle), Red (The Redbird), Jett (The Batwing) and Buff (The Bat Truck) – must navigate the growing pains of being a newly formed super team as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid. This relatable and aspirational series will follow the journey of this dynamic team as they thrill and entertain with their heroic adventures as well as demonstrate to kids the value of self-confidence, friendship and teamwork.

Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios said: “From ‘Batman: The Animated Series to Teen Titans Go!,’ superhero storytelling has definitely been one of our superpowers here at Warner Bros. Animation. We are so excited to bring that expertise over to the preschool space and take something that all kids love, cool vehicles, and give it a turbo boost with Batman!”

“Batwheels” is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register (“Looney Tunes Cartoons”) serves as executive producer. Michael G. Stern (“Doc McStuffins”) serves as co-executive producer, Simon J. Smith (“Baymax Dreams”) is supervising producer and Steven Fink of Bang Zoom Ltd. is producer.
