Among the projects that received rigor was $90 million Bat girl the movie was well produced and the cartoon Scoob !: Holiday Haunting, both premiering on HBO Max. Warner Bros. Discovery also closed a Wonder Twins movies, some shows at TBS and TNT (eg: Chad, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, The last OGand Snowpiercer), and of course, CNN+.
