Cartoon Net plans Green Lantern animated series

By George Szalai

Turner's Cartoon Network is planning a "Green Lantern" animated series.

Green_lantern Phil Kent, chairman and CEO of Time Warner's Turner networks unit, showed a slide with some of Cartoon Network's original programming here Thursday at TW's investor day.

It included the title "Green Lantern: The Animated Series."

Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Barry Meyer later in the day mentioned this as an example of increasing collaboration and coordination between his unit and Turner. He said the Cartoon show is based on the DC Comics character and Warner's "Green Lantern"  movie, scheduled for a June 17, 2011 release.

The TV series is expected to launch as soon as fall, 2011.
