WARNER BROS. TELEVISION GROUP'S DIGITAL STUDIO BLUE RIBBON CONTENT TO PRODUCE TWO NEW COMEDY SERIES FOR VERIZON

Verizon Orders Golden Revenge, Produced by Conan O'Brien's Conaco LLC, and Critters: A New Binge, a Series Adaptation of the Cult Classic Feature Films

BRC Digital Feature Good Girls Get High, an Alloy Entertainment Production, Also to Debut on Verizon

BURBANK, Calif. (January 10, 2018) - Warner Bros. Television Group's digital studio Blue Ribbon Content (BRC) continues to create new and exciting original content for the digital marketplace, with two new series orders from Verizon announced today at a panel during the Television Critics Association's (TCA) 2018 Winter Press Tour on the Warner Bros. Studios lot. The new live-action comedies are Golden Revenge, from Conan O'Brien's Conaco LLC, and Critters: A New Binge, a series adaptation of the cult classic feature films. Both series will begin production in early 2018.

These two series orders continue the highly successful relationship between Verizon and BRC which began with Now We're Talking, the live-action, sports-themed comedy from UNINTERRUPTED which was recently renewed for a second season. The collaboration between the two companies continued with the scripted original digital feature Good Girls Get High, an Alloy Entertainment Production, which will premiere on the streaming video service in 2018.

"With a cast list as diverse as puppies, cats and rampaging critters, these two new shows are perfect examples of the unexpected and dynamic programming we aim to produce at Blue Ribbon Content," said Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Blue Ribbon Content, and Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation. "Verizon has been a great partner, and we can't wait for audiences to dive into these stories."

LIVE-ACTION COMEDY SERIES

· GOLDEN REVENGE - Golden Revenge tells the epic saga of three pets out to get even with the jerks that left them for dead in this heartwarming animal tale that quickly turns into a quest for bloody vengeance.

Both Stern and Gardner executive produce. Golden Revenge is produced by Retrofit Films and Conaco LLC in association with Blue Ribbon Content for Verizon.

· CRITTERS: A NEW BINGE - In this series adaptation of the fan-favorite cult films, the critters return to Earth in search of one of their kin, who was left behind years ago during an earlier mission. They land in Burbank, Calif., where they wreak havoc on a group of high schoolers and their families in this new digital series written and executive produced by Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan. Rubin also directs. Rupert Harvey and Barry Opper, from the original Critters film franchise, are producers. Critters: A New Binge is produced by Abominable Pictures in association with Blue Ribbon Content for Verizon.

LIVE-ACTION DIGITAL FEATURE

· GOOD GIRLS GET HIGH - With graduation looming, two academically gifted "good girls," frustrated with their social standing in the high school hierarchy, get stoned on their last night of senior year in Good Girls Get High, a new scripted original digital feature. After their evening of experimentation goes hilariously awry, they ultimately learn that being "bad girls" isn't all it's cracked up to be. The film is directed by Laura Terruso, who is also a writer along with Jennifer Nashorn Blankenship. The cast includes Sundance breakout star Abby Quinn (Landline), Stefanie Scott (Insidious: Chapter 3, Jem and the Holograms, A.N.T. Farm), Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga films), Isabelle Fuhrman (Masters of Sex, The Hunger Games, Orphan), Chanté Adams (Roxanne Roxanne), YouTube sensation Miles McKenna, with Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black) and Danny Pudi (Community).
