Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes Says The DCTV Shows Generate $1 Billion In Revenue

While the DCTV superhero shows may be slipping in ratings, the shows are still a huge revenue earner according to statements from Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes in the latest earnings call with investors.

iZombie, Lucifer, Preacher, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Gotham are apparently huge earners for Time Warner according to CEO Jeff Bewkes.  Case in point, TNT just recently signed a deal to air Arrow reruns and will also be the basic cable home for the DCEU.  In addition to the ongoing shows, upcoming programs slated to debut or film a pilot include Powerless (NBC), Black Lightning (Fox) ,Krypton (Syfy) and Scalped (WGN).  With Arrow set to hit the magic 100 episode number later this season, The CW's gamble back in 2012 on a C-list archer certainly appears to have paid off.  

Recently, AT&T reached an agreement to purchase Time Warner for $85.4 billion.  However, the deal has yet to be finalized and could face federal opposition.  Knowing the DCTV shows alone bring in $1 billion in revenue certainly puts that figure into perspective.
