Greg Berlanti Inks New Overall Deal with Warner Bros. TV Group


Greg Berlanti has signed a new overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group, ensuring that Berlanti Productions will remain based at Warner Bros. for its television operations into the year 2027.

Under the terms of the partnership, Berlanti Productions will continue to develop new TV programming to be produced by divisions of the Warner Bros. Television Group for all platforms, including Warner Bros. Discovery’s HBO Max, external streaming services, cable and broadcast networks.

Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television Group’s relationship dates back, over two stints, to 2001 and has been renewed multiple times.

Berlanti has produced or created more than 40 shows in the last 20 years, with more than 1,300 hours of television under his belt. Berlanti Productions currently has upwards of 15 shows on the air or shooting.

David Zaslav, CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, said: “Greg 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.’ He began his career with us, and we are incredibly fortunate that he will continue to build and grow our TV studio into the future.”

Warner Bros. Television Group’s chairman and CEO, Channing Dungey, said: “We’re beyond thrilled to continue our partnership 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. 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. The TV business has changed, and Warner Bros. has changed, too, but I’m as grateful as ever to be making television and working with a passionate, brilliant, and kind leader like Channing Dungey and alongside a wise and tremendous old friend like Brett Paul. In my time getting to know David Zaslav, he is the most rare of Hollywood leaders: honest, loyal and visionary about the kind of thriving Warner Bros. he wants to build for the future, where storytellers like myself can have a home to tell stories that excite and move audiences all over the world, for years to come.”
