Warner Bros. Animation Names Nickelodeon Vet Audrey Diehl VP of Series

Warner Bros. Animations (WBA) has named Audrey Diehl as the new vice president of series, the studio announced Thursday.

In her new role, Diehl will report to Sam Register, president of both WBA and Warner Bros. Digital Series. She will develop new animated programming for the studio and will also oversee select current shows for the family audience. She will also have wide-ranging oversight of creative and production matters for animated content, from initial outline to finished episode. She will be charged with finding original material as well as identifying properties from the Warner Bros. collection to develop for animated series aimed at families. She will collaborate with existing creative talent already working at the Studio and will also spearhead the search for new writers, producers and artists for future development. Diehl will also serve as programming executive for select current WBA series.

Diehl comes to WBA after more than 14 years at Nickelodeon. Since October 2013, Diehl served as vice president of animation development, where she managed the network’s slate of development projects in a variety of genres for the kids 6–11 audience. In this capacity, she headed the development team and oversaw pre-production and production of a large slate of animated pilots, including the upcoming series “Pinky Malinky.” She joined Nickelodeon in 2003 and held a series of positions in both current series and development. During her tenure at Nickelodeon, Diehl developed a number of series, including “Sanjay & Craig,” “Harvey Beaks,” and “Pig Goat Banana Cricket.” She also worked as creative executive on “El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera,” “Fanboy & Chum Chum,” and “The Penguins of Madagascar,” among others.

Before working in television, Diehl was an entertainment journalist, serving as Associate Editor at Teen Magazine’s TeenMag.com, after writing for SOMA Magazine. She graduated from Stanford University, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with an interdisciplinary emphasis in film.

“Audrey has a very impressive track record of developing and producing highly successful, high quality series throughout her career, and we are very happy to welcome her to our team,” said Register. “This is an extremely exciting time to be working at WBA, with more than a dozen current series in production or on the air, and more to come. We look forward to Audrey contributing right away to our continued growth.”

WBA is currently producing 13 series, including “Justice League Action,” “Teen Titans Go!” and the upcoming “DC Super Hero Girls.” The studio is also producing the “Young Justice: Outsiders” for the upcoming DC-branded digital service.
