Topic: Warner Brothers Network


  
  Warner Bros. - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Warner bought Schlesinger's cartoon unit in 1944, and in subsequent decades characters such as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck became central to the company's image.
To the surprise of many, the flashy, star-driven Warner Communications merged in 1989 with the white-shoe publishing company Time, Inc. Though Time and its magazines claimed a higher tone, it was the Warner Brothers film and music units which provided the profits.
In the late 1990s, Warners obtained rights to the Harry Potter novels, and released the first one in 2001 the second one in 2002 and the third one in 2004.

The first Warner Bros. enterprise, "Warner Brothers Studios," was co-founded in Hollywood, California, in 1923 by four brothers, Harry Warner (1881-1958), Albert Warner (1882-1967), Sam Warner (1887-1927) and JackWarner (1892-1978).
During the 1930s, the Warner Bros. Studio became known for producing gritty, darkcrime films that were accused of glorifying the gangster lifestyle.
Warner Bros. also produced a number of action-adventure movies, practically monopolizing the genreof the swashbuckler and forever identifying the name of Errol Flynn with Robin Hood.

These figures are not competitive with the top networks, but they do beat out the UPN network which is their most comparable competition.

 WB NETWORK SAVES ``SISTER'' FROM THE AX
Just hours after ABC dropped ``Sister, Sister,'' Warner Brothers was in touch with producers Suzanne de Passe, Mert Rich and Brian Pollack to rescue the sitcom and commit to 22 new episodes.
With the twins, Tim Reid and Jackee Harry signed for 22 episodes, Warner Brothers launches its second season tonight with ``Sister, Sister'' at 8 on the cable superstation WGN and Saturday at 8 p.m.
Also making a leap in her career on the WB Network is Ellen Cleghorne, who first broke through on ``Saturday Night Live.'' Cleghorne told the TV writers that she regards starring in a sitcom as a new frontier.

 Smallville
The new Warner Brothers Network TV show "Smallville" was obviously inspired by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Smallville is the hometown of a teen-aged Clark Kent, long before he has adopted the Superman persona.
It was to take another 30 years before DC, then owned by Warner [the same company behind "Smallville"], recognised their obligation to the two men whose creation was the foundation of the company's success.
In the face of a concerted public campaign, Warner accepted it had a "moral obligation" to the two men, awarding them both pensions.

 The That's Warner Bros.!/Bugs N' Daffy Show Page
When the Warner Brothers' Television Network, the WB, began broadcasting in 1995, with a 'Kids' WB!' assortment of animated programs, it seemed logical that the offering should feature the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons for which Warner Brothers' animation division is famous.
The 1996 merger of Warner Brothers and Turner Entertainment gave the WB access to an additional number of shorts to air as part of the Daffy Show, and the WB's collection of post-1948 cartoons have made their way onto Warner Brothers' cartoon blocks on Cartoon Network, TNT, and TBS.
The WB Network retained the rights to the same post-1948 titles that it had been telecasting for the previous two years, and added first-run pre-1948 cartoons to compose new episodes.

Eventually it was decided that the character of Willow would discover her sapphic destiny (at the very time she was awakening to her Wiccan superpowers), and in season four she began a romantic relationship with the character of Tara.
This created some controversy in the media: the producers and the network received criticism, both from those opposed to gay characters on television, and from some pro-gay viewers who felt that the initial physical tepidness of the relationship, as well as the fact that the gay characters were both "witches", was reinforcing negative stereotypes.
Buffy is credited (alongside the teen drama Dawson's Creek) with playing a key role in the success of the Warner Brothers television network in its early years.
