Cartoon Network, Warners Partner for DC Programming Block
DC Entertainment, home to such superheroes as Batman and Superman, is teaming with Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network for a multiplatform block of original content called DC Nation on the network.
Debuting next year, DC Nation will feature on-air and online programming, interstitials, exclusive behind-the-scenes looks at Warners’ theatrical releases and an inside look into the world of DC, Cartoon Network announced Wednesday.
“DC Nation on Cartoon Network will be the first-ever dedicated broadcast destination to showcase the depth and breadth of the DC Universe,” DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson said in a statement. “We and our partners at WBTV are thrilled that fans will be able to immerse themselves in DC’s phenomenal stories, experience a wide spectrum of amazing characters and stay up-to-date on the latest happenings of the world’s greatest superheroes and their creators, both on-air and online.”
Green Lantern: The Animated Series, from Warner Bros. and based on the long-running DC comic, was also among Cartoon Network’s new series pickups unveiled at its upfront presentation Tuesday in New York.
Warner Bros. will release its big-screen Ryan Reynolds starrer Green Lantern on June 17.
