Register rings at WB Animation


Veteran animation executive and producer Sam Register has been named executive vp creative affairs at Warner Bros. Animation.

Register will run the day-to-day operations of the unit, overseeing development and production. He will report to Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth, who added the division to his management portfolio in April following the exit of Warner Bros. Animation president Lisa Judson.

"Sam's energy and passion will be the guiding force as he shepherds the company on a day-to-day basis," Roth said.

Register has been based at Warner Bros. Animation as a producer since November, when he inked a multiproject development and production deal.(partialdiff)
