Disney, Cartoon Network and Robin Red Breast have all been graced by my smiling presence this week ...
The Hat Building was going over to Google's calendar and e-mail when I walke through, leaving the older company-based systems behind. And board and development artists reaffirmed that A) Development has kicked up, and B) Ron and John's picture, though not in "bright green light" phase, is still moving along ... and the development art is terrific. (It ain't about Jack the Ripper, if you're wondering.)
Cartoon Network has a variety of new shows in development (always a good thing) and seems to be working with the subsidiaries of the Mother Conglomerate in ways that always seemed obvious to me, but they never did. But hey. Now they are!
Warner Bros. Animation’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series is heading to Cartoon Network for a one-hour special event.
The CG animated special will premiere November 11 with the series ultimately debuting on Cartoon Network next year as part of the new DC Nation programming block. ...
For years I was bewildered by Time-Warner's refusal to put Warner Bros. Animation product on Cartoon Network's cable pipeline. Now, happily, T-W is practicing a little synergy and doing what they should have done ... oh ... a decade ago.
But better late than never. Just because CN reports to Turner's Atlanta headquarters, while WBA checks in with Warner Bros. in Burbank, is no reason to be stupid.
Lastly, there is Robin Red Breast, subsidiary to Titmouse, an up-and-coming cartoon studio that has branches in New York (where it originated) and Hollywood, where Titmouse/Robin Red Breast is doing two Disney shows under union contract and other work without benefit of collective bargaining agreement. The studio is a beehive of activity, and expanding. They have multiple buildings in the heart of Tinseltown. (An interview with Chris Prynowski, who co-owns the studios with his wife Shannon, is here. And yeah, we'd like to have a contractual with Chris and Shannon's whole studio.)
