Warner Bros. pipeline shows. for writers and directors to close – The Hollywood Reporter


Warner Bros. Discovery will close its screenwriters and directors’ teleconferences at the end of the current 2022-23 season, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed.

The company is also shutting down Phase 13, its short-form digital content studio, with existing projects in development for inclusion on Warner Bros. Television.

WBTV’s decision to stop Phase 13 and its writer and director workshops is part of a larger round of layoffs taking place today at Warner Bros. led by Channing Dungey. Additional layoffs are expected to come as part of a larger effort by the Warner Bros. CEO. Discovery, David Zaslav seeks an estimated $3 billion in cost savings from the newly merged company. Casey Bloys’ HBO and HBO Max divisions experienced a similar round of layoffs in August. Other staff cuts are expected to come at other WBD divisions as Zaslav and the top lieutenants. His approach seeks to eliminate staff redundancies and appropriately scale its various divisions. As part of a larger effort, HBO Max and Discovery+ will be merged next year as execs continue to debate a new name for the service.

More will come.
