Warner Bros.' long history in China continues with the recent inauguration of a new office in Beijing.
Warner Bros. Chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara was on hand to celebrate the occasion, which included a reception with senior leadership, business partners and Warner Bros. China staff members. The new offices house WB’s film, television, home entertainment, games and corporate teams.
“Warner Bros. has been producing world-class films and TV shows for almost 100 years, and we look forward to sharing our expertise with our partners in China as well as with up-and-coming talent to benefit the entire entertainment industry,” said Tsujihara during the reception. “And, in the spirit of true cultural exchange, we are eager to learn from our partners and share great Chinese stories with audiences around the world."
Warner Bros. opened its first office in China in the 1930s, and today the company is active on a number of business fronts, with its film, television, home entertainment and videogame properties available to audiences throughout the country. In 2015 Warner Bros. and China Media Capital formed the film production joint venture, Flagship Entertainment.
