Sam Register Enters Into First-Look Deal with Cartoon Network

November 17, 2006

Cartoon Network has signed veteran animation executive and creator Sam Register to a first-look deal to develop programming for the network. The deal was announced by Jim Samples, executive vice president and general manager for Cartoon Network, and encompasses both kids and adult programming.

"Sam brings a talent and vision to the world of animation and programming that fits our sensibilities perfectly," said Samples. "He has a successful and proven track record with Cartoon Network as a development executive with prominent projects from Ben 10 and Teen Titans to My Gym Partner is a Monkey, and we are thrilled to be continuing our relationship with him in this capacity.

Previously, Register served as senior vice president, development for Cartoon Network and was responsible for overseeing development and production of original, action-oriented animated programming for the 24-hour cable service. Projects included the series Ben 10, My Gym Partner is a Monkey, PPGZ, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, as well as Star Wars: Clone Wars animated shorts, produced in partnership with Lucasfilm Ltd., and the Warner Bros. half-hour series, Teen Titans, Justice League Unlimited, The Batman and Duck Dodgers.

Register also once served as senior vice president of content development, where he worked to develop new programming and feature films around third-party assets based on action, adventure and existing entertainment properties. Prior to that, he was the first employee and eventual vice president of Cartoon Network Online, acting as the creative director and the driving force behind the look, feel and success of CartoonNetwork.com. With over eight years experience in visual and interactive design for children, he was an important partner in getting Cartoon Network initiatives to be visualized both internally and externally.

Register came to Cartoon Network Online from San Francisco-based Colossal Pictures, where he served as creative director leading projects for clients such as Disney, the Disney Channel, Hasbro, and Microsoft.

Prior to his work at Colossal, Register worked on the creative development of kid's television programming for Indigo Entertainment, a subsidiary of Grey Advertising in New York.

In addition, Register worked in advertising where he wrote, art directed and produced toy commercials for Hasbro and Kenner, including spots for GI Joe, Jurassic Park, Transformers, and Tonka Trucks.

Register attended Parsons School of Design in New York.
