A huge congratulations  is in order for Pam Lifford. She has been promoted to President, Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences, with responsibility for Warner Bros. Consumer Products, DC, Themed Entertainment and a new Global Franchise team.

In a statement to Deadline, Lifford says,

“This is an incredible opportunity for us to super-serve our fans across a variety of platforms and venues throughout their lifetimes,” said Lifford, the highest-ranking African-American woman at WB, reporting directly to Tsujihara. “Warner Bros. has world-class characters and brands that are beloved around the world — from our licensed DC Super Heroes and the Looney Tunes and Hanna Barbera animated superstars to a library of over 10,000 films and TV shows — and we’re now making it a priority to bring these properties to fans in new and exciting ways.  I’m thrilled to take on this challenge and look forward to working with my colleagues across the Studio to make this new business a great success.”

Lifford will also coordinate with Warner Media sister companies HBO and Turner as well as various AT&T divisions when needed. She joined the Warner Bros Team as an overseer for Consumer Products in 2016. She was in charge of all WBCP business functions including domestic and international licensing and worldwide marketing. Lifford’s new position is a testament to hard work paying off.

Warner Bros. Announces ‘DC Super Hero Girls’ Animated Series Coming To Cartoon Network

By Posted on 0 1 m read

If you’re a fan of the DC Super Hero Girls web series, than you’re in for a treat. Warner Bros. has announced that the popular line will now find its way to the TV screens as DC Super Hero Girls will officially become a full, animated series on Cartoon Network.

The TV series will premiere some time in 2018 and will include the expected, popular cast of: Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Bumblebee, Harley Quinn, and Poison Ivy. We will also see new recruits such as Zatanna and Green Lantern Jessica Cruz.

Via an official press release, here’s what to expect

The world may know them as Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl, but not-so-typical teenagers Diana, Kara and Barbara, alongside their Super Hero friends have much more to deal with than just protecting the citizens of Metropolis from some of the most sinister school-aged Super-Villains of the DC Universe. After all, being teens is tough enough, what with school, friends, family and the chaos that comes with managing a social life. But add super powers and a secret identity to the mix, and things can get a lot more complicated.

Since 2015, the DC Super Hero Girls line has been an inspirational success. With a focus on teaching young kids (especially young girls) that they can do anything they set their mind to, we’d confidently say DC and Warner Bros. are succeeding so far.

New Ish For Netflix!

By Posted on 4 1 m read

If you’re anything like us you’ve probably been wondering when Netflix would be getting some new material for you to burn through instead of boo-loving on rainy days. Well hunger no more! In an official press release, Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. Television Group announced they will be joining forces with the streaming media pioneer for a multi- year agreement.

Beginning March 30, 2013, Netflix members will have access to past seasons of animated and live-action shows from Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation and Adult Swim, as well as in January 2014 the relaunched TNT series Dallas. This means that you’ll now have access to show’s like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, Children’s Hospital and my personal favorite The Boondocks!

This is both a big AND a small step for Netflix. Small in the sense of the amount of new material they’ll be receiving. Large in the sense of the relationships that are being established and what that could possibly make available in the near future? What show’s would YOU like to see come to Netflix?
