Greg Berlanti Lands Major Deal Extension with Warner Bros. TV (Exclusive)

News of extension arrives as Berlanti's fall series 'Arrow' and 'Tomorrow People' prep for their premieres on The CW

Warner Bros. TV and Greg Berlanti have fortified their relationship in a substantial way, extending Berlanti’s existing overall deal with the studio through 2018.

The pact with Warner was initially forged in 2011 with a four-year time stamp, after Berlanti and his banner — Berlanti Prods. — wrapped a five-year overall tenure at ABC Studios. Deal extension with WBTV tacks on an extra three years to Berlanti’s residence with the studio, and makes the Berlanti overall one of the most lucrative production pacts on the WB lot.

Berlanti’s prolific TV career ranges across 10 series over the last 14 years, including “Dawson’s Creek,” “Everwood” and “Brothers & Sisters.” The producer currently has “Tomorrow People” and “Arrow” set up at CW, which bow their first and second seasons, respectively, this week.

Along with this fall’s pair of Berlanti programs, the producer has already made headway in this year’s development season, setting up numerous pilots at networks including NBC, CBS, USA and TNT, thus far. Development pieces include “The Mysteries of Laura,” which is seated at the Peacock with a pilot production commitment, alongside “Paradise,” which has a put pilot order. An untitled Rottenberg/Zuritsky comedy has received a put pilot order from the Eye.

Notably, “Arrow” spinoff “Flash” will be seeded into the Stephen Amell-starrer during its forthcoming sophomore season, and has already drawn attention from the fanboy community. “Flash” continues Berlanti’s connection to the DC Comics universe, one that spans into feature film world with “Green Lantern.”

Elsewhere in the silver screen landscape, Berlanti is set to helm Sony’s futuristic sci-fi pic “Epsilon.”

Berlanti is repped by WME and attorney Patti Felker.
