Warner Bros. Television Distribution

Warner Bros. Television Distribution (WBTD) is an American television distribution arm of Warner Bros. Television, itself a part of Time Warner formed c. 1960. In 1989, the studio formed Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution (WBDTD) after acquiring Lorimar-Telepictures when both distribution arms folded into WBTD.

The company currently distributes the library from its television library, including television programming material acquired from Turner Broadcasting System (includes Turner Entertainment Co. (the pre-May 1986 MGM TV library, the holdings of Associated Artists Productions, Gilligan's Island and it's two animated spin-offs The New Adventures of Gilligan and Gilligan's Planet) Turner Program Services (Captain Planet and the Planeteers and The New Adventures of Captain Planet (both produced by DiC Entertainment and Hanna-Barbera)), and most of the Hanna-Barbera and pre-1991 Ruby-Spears cartoons), Lorimar Television, Telepictures, post-1974 Rankin-Bass, HBO (except for non-US rights to certain shows), and Wolper Productions.

Famous quotes containing the words distribution, television and/or warner:

    There is the illusion of time, which is very deep; who has disposed of it? Mor come to the conviction that what seems the succession of thought is only the distribution of wholes into causal series.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The technological landscape of the present day has enfranchised its own electorates—the inhabitants of marketing zones in the consumer goods society, television audiences and news magazine readerships... vote with money at the cash counter rather than with the ballot paper at the polling booth.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    Lettuce is like conversation: it must be fresh and crisp, and so sparkling that you scarcely notice the bitter in it.
    —Charles Dudley Warner (1829–1901)
