DC Entertainment to launch digital hub26 April 2017
DC Entertainment, home to Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, is launching its own digital service in 2018.
DC is partnering with Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group on the direct-to-consumer digital platform.
The announcement marks the second major new service launched by Warner Bros Digital Networks — launched in 2016 with the mandate of building WB-owned digital and OTT video services — following the recently introduced animation platform, Boomerang.
The new service is expected to be more than a traditional OTT service; it is designed as an immersive experience with fan interaction and will encompass comics as well as TV series.
The first series for the platform has already been commissioned: Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter will produce live-action series Titans; while animated series Young Justice relaunching as Young Justice: Outsiders.
