DC Comics Names Noveck Sr. VP, Creative Affairs

Gregory Noveck has been named to the newly created position of Senior Vice President, Creative Affairs at DC Comics. He will be charged with exploring DC Comics’ vast character universe to identify characters and properties that lend themselves to feature film and television production, and to establish relationships within the creative community to move those projects forward.

Reporting directly to DC president and publisher Paul Levitz, Noveck will also work closely with Time Warner’s filmed entertainment subsidiaries (Warner Bros. Pictures, Warner Bros. Television, New Line Cinema, HBO Independent Prods.) to further their development and production of titles drawn from the DC library. He will split his time between DC Comics’ offices in New York and Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, Calif.

"While Warner Bros. Pictures has two mega-brands in Batman and Superman, plus films based on Catwoman, Wonder Woman and Constantine in various stages of production, creatively, we have barely scratched the surface of DC," says Jeff Robinov, president of production for Warner Bros. Pictures. "Having someone dedicated to working with our development team will be invaluable in mining this amazing resource."

Prior to joining DC Comics, Noveck served as Sr. VP, Television at Silver Pictures, where he started a new television division for producer Joel Silver and developed and co-executive produced NBC’s upcoming series Next Action Star. Before that, he was Sr. VP of creative affairs/producer at Platinum Studios, responsible for exploiting the extensive Platinum comics library and where he co-produced the Showtime sci-fi series Jeremiah. He has also served as head of television development at Gaumont Television in Los Angeles, director of production and development at New Line Television and director of creative affairs at Rysher Ent.
