Eric Kripke scores WB TV deal

'Supernatural' man nabs two-year pact

“Supernatural” exec producer Eric Kripke is scaring up an overall deal at Warner Bros. TV.

Under terms of the two-year exclusive pact, Kripke will continue to exec produce and showrun CW’s Thursday staple “Supernatural,” which enters its fourth season this fall.

Kripke also will start to develop projects under the deal. There’s no word if one of the new titles might be a “Supernatural” spinoff; Kripke has said in the past that he’s interested in doing a prequel of sorts that takes place in the Old West and centered on the show’s mythology.

Kripke’s at work crafting the show’s fourth season, following up on the season three cliffhanger that sent Dean (Jensen Ackles) to hell.

Beyond creating “Supernatural,” Kripke’s credits include adapting “Tarzan” for the WB, as well as the feature “The Boogeyman.”

Before making a splash in TV, Kripke was known for his short films, which included Sundance entry “Battle of the Sexes,” as well as “Truly Committed,” which won the audience award at Slamdance.
