Miller to lead net's new animation studio

NEW YORK — As part of its $450 million commitment to original animation, Cartoon Network will open an L.A.-based animation production facility to be headed by former Nick exec Brian Miller.

The cartoon cabler has tapped Miller — most recently VP of production for Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons Animation Studio — VP and G.M. of Cartoon Network Studios, which is slated to open in late May or early June.

The producers and staff of such ongoing Cartoon Net series as “The Powerpuff Girls,” “Johnny Bravo” and “Dexter’s Laboratory” will relocate to the new facility. Until recently, Cartoon Net production was set up at Hanna-Barbera.

Miller will oversee daily operations at the studio.

“Brian’s expertise in managing animation production teams will give Cartoon Network Studios a running start,” said Mark Norman, Cartoon Net’s senior VP, business operations.

While at Nick, Miller was responsible for overseeing domestic and overseas production on all series, including “Angry Beavers,” “Hey Arnold!” and “Catdog.” Previously, he was a VP of animation production at Hanna-Barbera, where he managed domestic and overseas production on all series, including Cartoon Net’s “Dexter’s Laboratory,” “Johnny Bravo” and “Cow and Chicken.”
