Two years after signing off the airwaves, the WB is returning with new programming - as well as some of its most memorable series - but not on TV. According to an article in the Hollywood Reporter, the Warner Bros. Television Group is reviving the network as a website, where viewers will be able to watch free streaming episodes of Gilmore Girls, What I Like About You and Everwood, as well as all other WB-produced shows. (The site's "working title," wb.com, currently jumps to a general Warner Bros. Studios roundup of movies, TV, DVDs, etc.)
The WB, which merged with UPN in 2006 to become the bastion of twentysomething programming that is the CW, aired a string of fan-favorite shows in its 10-year existence, including Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. It's not clear yet whether non-Warner Bros. shows will be available on the site, but new Web-minisodes are reportedly in the works, with series aimed at the WB's core audience.
Warner Bros. hasn't confirmed the details, but the Reporter's sources say that wb.com will have a preliminary launch next month and a "major rollout" in the fall. Whether or not anyone will be watching Jack & Bobby still remains a mystery.
What's your take? Which now-defunct WB series do you most hope ends up streaming on this new site? - Nina Hämmerling Smith
