New Line Television
New Line Television was the television arm of the film studio of the same name.
The company was founded in 1988 to produce Freddy's Nightmares, a television series based on the studio's Nightmare on Elm Street film series. Following the series' cancellation in 1990, New Line launched its television unit in 1991.[a]
In 1990, New Line bought a majority stake in RHI Entertainment, a production company specializing in television movies and miniseries. RHI was sold to Hallmark Cards in 1994, shortly after New Line had been acquired by Turner Broadcasting System.
TBS merged with Time Warner in 1996. From October 2006, MGM Television began distributing New Line's films and television series.
In February 2008, New Line Cinema was merged with Warner Bros. and hence ceased to exist as a separate entity. In turn, New Line Television was folded into Warner Bros.' television division. In March 2009, New Line re-entered the television production market.[clarification needed]
