Cartoon Network veteran Sam Register has joined Warner Bros. Animation as exec VP of creative affairs. The Hollywood Reporter says he will be in charge of running the day-to-day operations of the unit, overseeing development and production. He will report to Warner Bros. TV president Peter Roth. Former Warner Bros. Animation president Lisa Judon left the post in April.
Register has been based at Warner Bros. Animation as a producer since November when he inked a multiproject development and production deal. He developed Cartoon Network hits such as Ben 10, Teen Titans and Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi. His recent exec producer credits include Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Transformers: Animated.
