Turner Broadcasting System 2015
Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (also known simply as Turner) is an American media conglomerate that is part of AT&T's WarnerMedia, and manages the collection of cable television networks and properties initiated or acquired by Ted Turner. The company was founded in its current form in 1965, and merged with Time Warner on October 10, 1996. It now operates as a semi-autonomous unit of WarnerMedia. The company's assets include TBS, TNT, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Boomerang and TruTV. The division included CNN prior to Time Warner's acquisition by AT&T, but was separated into its own unit reporting to the CEO of WarnerMedia. The headquarters of Turner's properties are located in both the CNN Center in Downtown Atlanta and the Turner Broadcasting campus off Techwood Drive in Midtown Atlanta, which also houses Turner Studios. Across Interstate 75/85 from the Techwood campus is the original home of Turner's WTBS superstation (now separated into its TBS cable network and Peachtree TV), which today houses the headquarters of Adult Swim and Williams Street Productions.

Relationship with Collin the Speedy BoyEdit

Since its acquisition by Time Warner in 1996, most Collin the Speedy Boy shows have been shown exclusively on cable on Cartoon Network, Boomerang and WB Kids.

In addition, a proposed live-action television series based on the video games was to be aired on TNT in the early 2000s, but it didn't advance for unknown reasons. However, the another series The Speedy Boy was finally greenlit, but aired on The CW.
