Greg Berlanti ties to Warner Bros. to 2027

Prolific creator to build on 40 shows already created for Warner Bros TV Group

Super-producer Greg Berlanti has agreed a fresh exclusive overall deal with Warner Bros Television Group tying him to the company for a further four years.

Berlanti and his label Berlanti Productions are behind numerous current WBTVG-produced hits including HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant, Netflix’s You and The CW’s All American, alongside his raft of DC Universe titles such as The Flash, Superman, Green Arrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman.

His deal, which runs to at least 2027, will see Berlanti Productions develop programming to be produced by WBTVG for platforms including in-house streamer HBO Max, external SVoDs, cable and broadcast networks.

The pact strengthens a relationship which spans 22 years, over two stints, and has seen Berlanti – often credited as the most prolific creative in Hollywood – renew the deal multiple times. The partnership has yielded more than 40 series and Berlanti Productions has more than 15 shows on air or shooting.

Sarah Schechter continues to serve as partner and chair of the company alongside Berlanti, as well as for their subsidiary Berlanti/Schechter Films. Leigh London Redman serves as president of Berlanti Productions, overseeing television.

Channing Dungey, WBTVG chair and chief exec, said the company was re-upping with “one of the most accomplished, celebrated, and compelling storytellers in the industry”.

“Greg is a visionary, a pioneer, and a leader, but more than that, he’s a treasured member of the Warner Bros. family,” she added. “Collaborating with Greg is a tremendous privilege, and we can’t wait to see what stories he and his team will bring to life in the coming years.”

Berlanti said: “Every day I wake up grateful I get to get tell stories for a living with so many talented people that I love. With this deal, I’ll be lucky enough to be going into my third decade of making TV and calling Warner Bros. my home.”

David Zaslav, chief exec of Warner Bros Discovery, added that Berlanti is a “huge talent, and the impact of his prolific and powerful storytelling on Warner Bros. and audiences, and on our culture, is just ‘wow’.”
