For the new HBO Streaming Service.

I took most of this list from Variety but it seems that they have missed out on a lot of shows such as a Robert Zemeckis Show Tooned Out - LooneyToons Animated & Live Action Show, New Looney Toons shorts, the above mentioned Green Lantern & Adam Strange, Jellystone which appears to be a Hanna Barbera Show which collects all the characters



Other New Shows just plucked out some random ones of names of shows or showbiz people I am familiar with, there’s tons more I am familiar with on the list but I didn’t want to copy paste the entire Article

The series follows the lives of five high school girls whose clique falls apart after the leader of the group, Alison, goes missing.
  • CW Shows: HBO Max will be the exclusive streaming home for CW dramas produced by Warner Bros. starting with the fall 2019 season, including the DC Entertainment series “Batwoman,” and “Katy Keene” (a spinoff of “Riverdale”). Note, however, that CW shows going forward will be available on HBO Max beginning 30 days prior to the TV premiere of the next seasons of those shows.

As well as lots of WB Classic Shows & Movies from their Library, lots of Classic Looney Toons, Hanna Barbera Shows etc. I believe they have more Adult Swim Classics too.


Sorry about the formatting I am on a mobile device. I think the price is $14.99 per month.

Oh I just looked up the Lovecraft thing, it isn’t what I thought it was going to be, it’s based on this novel https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovecraft_Country_(novel)

The real android in Raised By Wolves is Ridley Scott. How else can you explain an 81 years old man directing 10 episodes in South Africa?
It has Ragnar as a space marine so it's gonna be great.

“Little Ellen,” as well as putting a docu-series from her titled “Finding Einstein” into development.

I wonder if this will be about back when Ellen was straight acting, or if it will anachronistically portray her as some super woke gay child Ellen. It will be the latter.

Also can't wait for this daytime talk show host/former stand up to present her findings on Einstein. I'm so tired of propaganda.

So whats the point of the DC subscription service if you put DC shows elsewhere? lol

The DC subscription also gets you their entire comic library and all the classic DC animated series and animated movies as well as community pages (which are mostly silent). Most likely it'll get integrated into HBOmax along with Boomerang, Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network's streaming services.

I echo dorkimoe dorkimoe above. Why not on the DC Universe app? Perhaps they'll merge it with HBO's like some people suspect. Anyway, don't care for Green Lantern. But Adam Strange seems like a great premise for a show.

“Dune: The Sisterhood”: An adaptation of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson’s book based in the world created by Frank Herbert’s book Dune, from director Denis Villeneuve.
Forgive me, but weren't Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's prequels considered crap by fans? I can't see why they deserve a tv adaptation. Also, kind of jumping the gun a little bit when Denis Villeneuve's big screen version of the original book hasn't even come out yet. Though I have faith it'll be good, since Denis is directing it.

“Raised By Wolves”: RidleyScott’s serialized sci-fi series will now launch on HBO Max, as opposed to TNT where it was originally set up.
Interesting premise, though I'm not sold on Ridley Scott's involvement. But it stars my man Travis Fimmel, who was great in Vikings. May check it out.

“Lovecraft Country”: A horror series based on a novel by Matt Ruff, written and executive produced by Misha Green, and executive produced by Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams.
I'll admit, I'm no horror fan. But Lovecraft's brand of cosmic horror has always intrigued me. I especially loved Alan Moore's take and celebration of Lovecraft lore in his comics for Avatar Press. I'd prefer they did an adaptation of that rather than this novel they're adapting.

“Perry Mason”: The classic legal drama for a new generation, executive produced by Robert Downey, Jr. and Susan Downey, with Matthew Rhys in the title role.
My dad was big fan of the original series starring Raymond Burr. Don't know how they hold up today, as I'm pretty sure a lot of the legal stuff in the series was probably bullshit.

“South Park”: Among the announcements at WarnerMedia day was that all 23 seasons of the award-winning animated satire will stream exclusively on HBO Max in June 2020, followed by three brand new seasons which will debut on HBO Max 24 hours after each episode premieres on Comedy Central.
Yeouch. That is a big get for HBO. I was disappointed that Netflix only has the last 5 seasons.

Studio Ghibli: The entire Studio Ghibli library will be available on a U.S. streaming platform for the first time, after WarnerMedia struck a historic deal with the revered Japanese animation studio.
That is huge. Frankly speaking I've never liked how Disney handled the US release of Ghibli films.

Lovecraft Country was pretty dope. I've heard they're doing the obligatory gender-swap of one of the main characters. Whatever.

Dune is being handled by Denis, so that's an immediate win.

Hadn't heard of Animated Gremlins or Raised by Wolves. Both have me intrigued.

Is this just US or Europe too?
I have HBO and HBO go, does this come included with the subscription or is it a separate thing (extra charge)?

This has the potential to be my sole streaming service. DC universe, Lovecraft, HBO and new GOT- all my favorite things. A heavyweight fight between this and Disney, but Disney hates their fans so I’m going with Warner.
