An iconic name in animation is resurrected.
Kids’ content is “the most heated front in the streaming wars.”
The announcements closely follow the news that responsibility for HBO Max’s kids and family programming has shifted to Warner Bros.
As part of the restructuring, Cartoon Network boss Tom Ascheim says that the brand will “not always be cartoons.”
Combined, the two studios he’s leading currently produce more than 30 series.
The veteran executive served as the programming block’s creative director at its launch in 2001.
The executive will join Warner Bros. as president of global kids, young adults, and classics just after the launch of HBO Max.
