Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. Key Developments

Warner Bros Announces Executive Changes

Warner Bros. worldwide marketing and international distribution chief Sue Kroll will take over domestic oversight duties when the studio's veteran distribution chief Dan Fellman exits at the end of 2015. Kroll will become president of worldwide distribution, adding North America to her portfolio. International distribution chief Veronika Kwan Vandenberg will take over Fellman's day-to-day responsibilities, continuing to report to Kroll. Her title will be president of domestic and international distribution. The moves consolidate the studio's domestic and international film distribution into a global function and were announced by Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros., to whom Kroll will report.

Sky Faces European Commission Competition Objections over Geoblocking

The European Commission has accused Sky and major US studios of anti-competitive behaviour for blocking access to Sky services in the rest of Europe. The EC sent a statement of objections to Sky and the studios Disney, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Sony, Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros, outlining its concerns about clauses in their content licensing deals that prohibit EU consumers located elsewhere to access, via satellite or online, Sky's pay-TV services available in the UK and Ireland. The case represents a clear test of the EC's plans to end so-called geoblocking, where content is limited to specific countries, and reform EU copyright law to allow for cross-border, multi-country distribution of audio and video content. Sky and the studios will have the chance to respond to the EC's allegations before the Commission decides to bring formal charges of competition violations.

Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. Announce global agreement

Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. have announced that together, the two firms are intensifying their ongoing partnership with a global deal that will build on the firm's two-network strategy by bolstering the pipeline of original content being developed for the newly rebranded Boomerang, the beloved network popular for its funny and timeless contemporary animation. The deal, which signifies the first-ever original content being created exclusively for Boomerang, includes almost 450 half-hours of programming from Warner Bros. Animation. Along with prospective crossover with Turner Broadcasting's Pogo, Boing, Toonami and Cartoon Network (U.S.), the content will premiere on all Boomerang channels globally and on some Cartoon Network channels worldwide. The alliance also expands Boomerang's access to the classic animation portfolio from the Hanna-Barbera, MGM and Warner Bros. Animation collection, a total of 3,500 titles.
