In an official blog post, Dawn Ostroff, Chief Content and Advertising Business Officer of Spotify said, “We could not be more excited to be working with Robert, Peter, and the entire Warner Bros. and DC teams to deliver new exclusive stories to the more than 286 million Spotify users.”
Spotify is now taking its podcast category very seriously. It is now signing up popular creators and celebs to its platform. Just a day after cracking a podcast deal with Kim Kardashian West, Spotify now announced a multi-year partnership with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. So, there is very good news coming up for all you DC fans.
With this partnership, Spotify will produce and distribute original narrative-driven scripted podcasts. The podcast will feature some of the most popular DC superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, The Joker, and plenty of other iconic characters.
The partnership will be managed by Robert Steele, SVP of Business Strategy and Operations and Peter Girardi, SVP of Creative Affairs over at Warner Bros. They will be co-developing and producing the podcast in partnership with Spotify. Then Spotify will take care of other tasks such as marketing, advertising, and distribution of the original shows on its platform.
As per the press release, Spotify will get a first look at the original scripted podcast shows created by DC Comics. The shows will be based on the large DC universe and will include some of the existing premier, iconic characters. Warner Bros, DC, and Spotify also plan to together create “new programming from original intellectual property” in the coming time.
As of now, Spotify has already put a banner stating that the DC Universe is coming to its streaming service. You can use this box down below to land on that page and directly follow the podcast after logging in to your Spotify account.
