Warner Bros. Chairman And CEO Kevin Tsujihara Resigns

Warner Bros. Chairman And CEO Kevin Tsujihara Resigns

Warner Bros. Chairman And CEO Kevin Tsujihara Resigns

Today (18th March), Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) – Kevin Tsujihara announced that he’s stepping down and leaving the movie studio. Kevin has worked for Warner Bros for 25 years, and since 2013, he was in charge of the studio. He had a promising future at Warner Bros. because of a newly expanded job role, with popular brands such as Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Boomerang, TCM and Crunchyroll added to his supervisory responsibilities after the announcement of the reformation of WarnerMedia only two weeks ago. Kevin Tsujihara was also the first person of East Asian descent to run a Hollywood studio.

In a Hollywood Reporter article from 6th March, it was emerged that text messages were exchanged between Kevin and actress Charlotte Kirk, according to the texts, Kevin attempted to get movie auditions for Charlotte in exchange of a sexual relationship. Charlotte Kirk has appeared in two Warner Bros. films: 2016’s How to Be Single and 2018’s Ocean’s 8. Kevin’s personal attorney claimed that Kevin had no direct involvement in hiring Charlotte Kirk. The allegations are overshadowing of what could be an exciting time at Warner Bros. and WarnerMedia as a whole.

Before resigning, Kevin left an internal memo for his colleagues at Warner Bros., the memo reads as follows:

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past week and a half, I have been reflecting on how the attention on my past actions might impact the company’s future. After lengthy introspection, and discussions with John Stankey over the past week, we have decided that it is in Warner Bros.’ best interest that I step down as Chairman and CEO.

I love this company and the people that make it so great. I’ve been honored to head this organization and work alongside all of its talented employees over the past 25 years. Together we’ve built this studio into an unequivocal leader in the industry.

However, it has become clear that my continued leadership could be a distraction and an obstacle to the company’s continued success. The hard work of everyone within our organization is truly admirable, and I won’t let media attention on my past detract from all the great work the team is doing.

I am overwhelmed and grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from colleagues and industry partners during this difficult time.

Again, I am so proud of the great work that you do every day to make Warner Bros. the gold standard in our industry. It has been a pleasure to work alongside each and every one of you, and I wish you all the absolute best.

Kevin’s boss, WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey also made a statement regarding his departure:

“It is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners for Kevin to step down as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Kevin has contributed greatly to the studio’s success over the past 25 years and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes are inconsistent with the Company’s leadership expectations and could impact the Company’s ability to execute going forward.”

John Stankey and WarnerMedia’s board of directors has yet to announce who will replace Kevin Tsujihara as Warner Bros. new CEO. This is an unusual time at the company, after seeing the announced departure of the CEOs of Turner (David Levy), HBO (Richard Plepler) and Warner Bros. (Kevin Tsujihara) within the space of a fortnight. An interim Warner Bros. leadership team will be announced tomorrow (19th March).

What does Kevin Tsujihara’s resignation mean for Cartoon Network?

The resignation of Kevin Tsujihara shouldn’t directly affect Cartoon Network’s operations, as Turner remains to be a going concern as the restructuring process can be a lengthy and difficult process and WarnerMedia’s future plans were only announced two weeks ago. Christina Miller remains to be President and General Manager of Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Adult Swim.

Adult Swim And Anime Streaming Service Crunchyroll Announce Partnership

Today (12th March) Cartoon Network USA’s nightly young adult programming service – Adult Swim and Ellation’s Crunchyroll have announced that they have announced a programming partnership for Adult Swim’s Japanese anime block – Toonami which airs on Saturday nights. From now on, both Crunchyroll and Adult Swim will work together on licensed content, co-productions and distribution opportunities. The news of the partnership follows the announcement of a corporate reshuffle at WarnerMedia last week which led to the break up of Cartoon Network’s owners – Turner, causing CN, Adult Swim and Ellation (Crunchyroll’s owners) to move to Warner Bros’s brand new Global Kids and Young Adults division. At present, Turner is still a going concern until the complex process of restructuring at WarnerMedia is completed.

Crunchyroll was founded in 2006 and WarnerMedia inherited the streaming service through its merger with telecommunications company AT&T, last August, AT&T fully acquired Otter Media, the owners of Ellation, which owns Crunchyroll.

Ever since the Time Warner/AT&T merger, Adult Swim and Crunchyroll have worked together and even announced a new anime series called Blade Runner – Black Lotus based on the Oscar-winning movie Blade Runner 2049, which is co-produced by Alcon Television Group. The English-dubbed episodes will premiere on Toonami in the United States and Crunchyroll will handle worldwide streaming. Crunchyroll and Adult Swim have also collaborated to distribute the anime series – Mob Psycho 100, which premiered on the Toonami programming block last year.

Jason DeMarco, senior vice president, creative director for on-air at Adult Swim and co-creator of Toonami, made this statement in regards of the new partnership with Crunchyroll:

“Our partnership with Crunchyroll will open up exciting new possibilities for both of us. This will expand Toonami’s already great programming to include even more premiere and original anime. It’s a great time to be an anime fan!”

Crunchyroll’s general manager – Joanne Waage also added:

“Our mission is to grow anime globally, which makes Adult Swim the perfect partner as Toonami has been incredibly influential in the growth of anime here in the U.S. We can’t wait to show our fans what we have in store for them through this new programming partnership. Expect new co-productions, expanded distribution of dubs, and generally more accessible anime!”

From The DC Comics Press Release: The Next Adventure Of DC Super Hero Girls Continues With New Graphic Novels By Amy Wolfram: New Series Writer Joined by DC Super Hero Girls Veteran Artist Yancey Labat for DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH

DC announced today that the publisher will continue its critically acclaimed DC Super Hero Girls (DCSHG) graphic novel series with new stories told by animation and comics writer Amy Wolfram. Wolfram’s graphic novels will tell original stories starring Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and many more popular DC characters set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that will air Sundays at 4 p.m. ET/PT on Cartoon Network beginning March 17, 2019.

Wolfram is best known for her work on such fan-favorite animated shows as Teen Titans Go!, and most recently contributed several episodes to the DCSHG animated shorts.

“I’m very excited to be working on DC Super Hero Girls,” stated Wolfram. “Not only do we get to see these iconic superheroes in action as they protect Metropolis, we also get to peek behind the masks and capes to see their secret identities as they deal with an even greater challenge–being a teenager in high school!”

Joining Wolfram for the first installment is longtime DCSHG artist Yancey Labat.

“I’m so excited to work with Amy on this new series,” explained Labat. “The new look is fun to draw. The characters are very expressive and over-the-top, and I love the zaniness and looseness of the designs.”

The first book, DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH, will follow Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee and Zatanna as they try to balance their superhero duties with their extracurricular activities.

The DCSHG graphic novels will be published under DC’s new middle grade publishing imprint, DC Zoom. For complete details on the upcoming AT METROPOLIS HIGH graphic novel, see below:
