History

Daniel Weiss Associates was founded in January 1987 as a book packaging company. In 1997, the division 17th Street Productions was created to specialize in young adult fiction.[2]

In January 2000, 17th Street Productions was sold to Alloy, Inc. (later Alloy Digital), and was renamed Alloy Entertainment. Led by Leslie Morgenstein, the division became a frequent partner with publishers and studios to produce film and television adaptations of young adult books.[3]

On June 11, 2012, Alloy Digital's majority owner ZelnickMedia divested Alloy Entertainment and sold it to Warner Bros. Television, which Time Warner owned the company until AT&T's acquisition in 2018, after which it became WarnerMedia.[4][5]
