Sam Register Upped To President Of Warner Bros. Animation, Will Head New Digital Unit

The second part of the title refers to Register’s role as head of a newly formed live-action digital content production unit where he will oversee the development and production of original live-action digital series, working with both Warner Bros TV-based creative talent as well as outside writers and producers.
