Rene Echevarria collaborating on sci-fi project

Greg Berlanti’s empire continues to expand: Scribe is developing a sci-fi project with Rene Echevarria for ABC.

Berlanti and Echevarria are behind “The Return,” which they’re developing for the Alphabet net through ABC Studios (where Berlanti is based via a megabucks overall deal).

Project revolves around the impact on the world — including the White House — when aliens land.

Berlanti is behind ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money,” “Eli Stone” and “Brothers & Sisters.”
