Berlanti pacts with Warner Bros. TV

Showrunner leaves ABC Studios after five years

Greg Berlanti has signed a four-year deal with Warner Bros. Television.

Showrunner is leaving ABC Studios after five years. Although Berlanti had a little more than two years left on his current deal, the decision to move was mutual from all camps.

No financial arrangement on the pact was announcement, but it was believed to be in the eight-figure territory with other top showrunners in television, including Chuck Lorre and J.J. Abrams — both of whom are also camped at Warner Bros.

Although he doesn’t actively run either show any more, Berlanti remains exec producer on “Brothers and Sisters” and “No Ordinary Family.” He was also the creator of the Alphabet’s short-lived legal drama “Eli Stone.”

Making a move into features, Berlanti wrote the screenplay for June’s Warner Bros. superhero pic “Green Lantern” and “Wrath of the Titans,” due out in 2012.
