Veteran animation exec Sam Register has inked a multi-property development and production deal with Warner Bros. Animation.
Register has been at the top of the Cartoon Network food chain for almost 10 years, serving as executive producer for several series, including Teen Titans, The Batman and most recently CN original and hit Ben 10, now in its third season of production. He also created Japan-pop-influenced Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. With the new WB deal in place, he’ll continue to work with Cartoon Network through a first-look development agreement struck last fall.
He joined Turner Broadcasting in 1995 as creative director for Turner New Media and eventually returned to Cartoon Network in 1997 as SVP/creative director of Cartoon Network Online, where Register developed a creative plan to build network’s online presence.
