Warner Bros. Animation has a new top kick:
Warner Bros. Television Group has tapped former AOL marketing exec Lisa Judson to top its toon unit.
Judson succeeds Sander Schwartz as prexy of Warner Bros. Animation. Schwartz ankled last month...
Judson's duties in the toon division include overseeing its expansion in the fast-growing area of original production for new media and broadband platforms. She will supervise traditional TV kidvid production for Kids' WB!, Cartoon Network and other outlets, as well as the development of direct-to-video titles with the Warner Premiere homevid division.
Maybe new blood is a good thing for WBA. The studio has been something less than a busy hive of cartoon activity the last couple of years.
