In Young Justice: Outsiders the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets.

Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, Young Justice reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.

Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
Desribed as: When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-born virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp’s mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous — and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all.
Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica) and Gary Dauberman (IT) are writers, with producers including Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, and Michael Clear.
