The Emmy Award-winning producer, writer, and performer signs exclusive development and production agreement to create original animated programming for all WarnerMedia platforms.
Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS) have just signed an exclusive, multiyear cross-studio overall deal with Emmy Award-winning producer, writer, and performer Wyatt Cenac. Under the agreement, Cenac will develop and produce original animated programming at both WBA and CNS for a variety of audiences, including preschool, kids, adult, and family/co-viewing across all WarnerMedia platforms, as well as external outlets and services.
Currently, Cenac has two projects in active development at the studios – an animated longform movie and adult animated series – in addition to assisting on other various series development. He joins Looney Tunes Cartoons executive producer and showrunner Pete Browngardt as the second person to sign an overall cross-studio deal at WBA and CNS that allows development of original material and access to the extensive character and franchise libraries at each studio. This marks a return to the medium for Cenac, now as a producer, having begun his career in animation in 2002 as a writer for four seasons on King of the Hill.
“It is a huge win to have someone as funny, insightful, and unique as Wyatt join us at the studios,” commented Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios president Sam Register. “His creative voice further expands the variety of stories we can tell, and I look forward to a great partnership.”
“All that time I spent watching cartoons instead of doing my homework is finally starting to pay off,” added Cenac. “Thank goodness (and I suppose WBA too).”
Cenac is represented by UTA, Avalon Management and attorney Jared Levine.
