Warner Bros New Digital Unit Unveils Name & Slate
Warner Bros’ recently launched digital series production unit, which encompasses short-form content from all divisions of the company, has unveiled its inaugural slate. Named Blue Ribbon Content, the unit, headed up by Sam Register, is charged with developing and producing primarily live-action series for digital platforms. Its first projects include a new live-action Mortal Kombat series, which has been greenlighted, as well as a live-action Static Shock series in development, produced by Reginald Hudlin and a project from Akiva Goldsman . Also included in the slate are previously announced Justice League: Gods And Monsters Chronicles, an animated shortform series based on the animated feature Justice League: Gods & Monsters, from Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett; and Rob Thomas’ long-gestating Veronica Mars spinoff Play It Again, Dick, which stars Ryan Hansen as himself. Blue Ribbon’s development slate features six live-action projects — three comedies and three sci-fi shows.
