Berlanti

Before the pandemic hit, Berlanti had a whopping 17 series in production — ranging from six-season “The Flash” on The CW to HBO Max’s new drama “The Flight Attendant,” starring Kaley Cuoco — employing more than 5,000 below-the-line workers, and he didn’t leave them high and dry when shooting had to cease. He set up a $600,000 fund to support staffers and donated another $400,000 to the MPTF Emergency Relief Fund, the SAG-AFTRA COVID Relief Fund and the Actors Fund. The largesse was made possible, in part, by the overall deal Berlanti signed with Warner Bros. Television in 2018 reportedly worth upwards of $300 million that will keep him at the studio through 2024. He recently exec produced Epix’s six-part Manson Family doc “Helter Skelter.”
