Boomerang, the companion channel to Cartoon Network, is expanding its footprint in Asia with its upcoming debut in Korea on cable and IPTV platforms Nov. 14.

Targeted to kids ages 4 to 9, the network will offer new episodes of timeless favorites from Warner Bros. Studios such as "The Tom and Jerry Show," "Looney Tunes" and Scooby-Doo" for the first time in the country.

The channel will also feature Korean content and Turner will continue to seek out opportunities to be a part of local animation projects. Turner recently announced the network’s biggest-ever animation project in Korea called "Beat Monsters," a new co-production with Synergy Media and Studio Goindol.

“Boomerang’s arrival in Korea will be the perfect accompaniment to Cartoon Network, the country’s No.1 international kids’ channel," says Phil Nelson, managing director, North Asia, Turner International. "Turner has already made a firm commitment to the local animation industry over the years and this investment is set to continue.”
