“What we’re trying to do is curate the best of what we have, so that we’re not just putting 50,000 hours out there. Good luck to finding what you want out of [that].” Apple recently made a similar argument, hoping that the curated quality of its upcoming streaming offering stands out against Netflix’s “something for everyone” approach.

Greenblatt name-checked classic Warner Brothers films like Gone with the Wind and The Wizard of Oz, as well the many brands under the WB banner: HBO, TBS, CNN, DC Comics, Adult Swim, and even Looney Tunes, which particularly excited Dern.

“I hadn’t heard Looney Tunes until now!” she said. “This is the greatest news ever.”
