Williams Street Productions, LLC, operating under the name Williams Street (previously known as Ghost Planet Industries from 1994–1998, named after Space Ghost's home planet), is a division of Cartoon Network, which is owned by Turner Broadcasting System, an operational unit of Time Warner. The studio is responsible for Adult Swim original series; Adult Swim is also produced and programmed by Williams Street. Keith Crofford and Mike Lazzo oversee operations for the studio building.

[edit]

Outside of the studio.

The name originates from the location of the studios (which double as the home office for Adult Swim) at 1065 Williams Street NW in Atlanta, Georgia, near the current offices of TBS and CNN. The street is named for early Atlanta settler Ammi Williams.

The studio's production logo features a wavy gray image of Space Ghost's fictional studio from Space Ghost Coast to Coast, with the words "Williams Street" beneath it. The soundtrack of Mark VII Limited's production logo (the drum roll and the two clinks of the hammer) is often used while the GPI/Williams Street production card is shown.
