Warner Bros. Discovery and Amazon are teaming up to produce new DC animated projects


In a keynote session at C21Media’s Annual London Content Event This week, Warner Bros. president Channing Dungey. Television Studios has revealed some of the new moves the company plans to make as part of Zaslav’s vision for its future. Based on Diversity, Dungey expressed particular excitement for her department and pointed out that Zaslav’s willingness to work with outside production companies is one of the main reasons why. Unlike the old guard who feels like “everything has to stay in the house; we don’t want anything to leak out,” Dungey said that Zaslav was very interested in the idea of ​​working with others and putting the studio’s content on platforms it doesn’t fully own.

“David Zaslav was a lot more open to exploring all of our animated IPs and was able to do that across different platforms,” Dungey said. “Obviously, HBO Max will be our first stop, but we’re in the process of finalizing a major deal with Amazon to bring some of our DC-branded content to the animation.”

While Dungey doesn’t go into detail about all that Amazon’s big deal entails — like whether these new projects will live on both Amazon Prime and whatever HBO Max is meant to be — at the beginning of this month, Zaslav made it very clear his wish is to double the current IP as Superman. Zaslav’s also stated that he is interested in returning to the world of Harry Potter in order to cash in on the franchise’s surging popularity, Dungey echoed a sentiment and said that the studio is currently having “a number of different conversations about.”

“I wish I could tell you that something is about to happen on the horizon but there is a lot of interest and passion going into it, so it definitely is,” Dungey said in response to a question. Ask about whether a scenario has been planned. Harry Potter maybe in the works. “Our team that didn’t follow the description did a great job Back to Hogwarts special for HBO last year was a huge hit, then we did a quiz show, Tournament of Houses, for which Helen Mirren is the host. The audience is ready, they want to go, so we just have to figure out what the right next step is.”

Before the recent layoffs and restructuring at Warner Bros. Television, it makes perfect sense for the studio to move some of that work out to third parties. But the optics of Warner Bros. Discovery taps Amazon to create DC superhero-themed content while it’s also trying to figure out how to keep Harry Potter involved is a bit sad and it looks like Zaslav’s intention was to stick to his gun by going back to the well-known IP well.
