Berlanti-Schechter Films

Sarah
Schechter

Chairwoman / Partner

Schechter had already cemented her status as one of the biggest TV producers, with 17 series on the air in 2020 that she exec produced as a partner and chairman alongside Greg Berlanti with their joint prodco. Then in 2021, she established herself as a force to be reckoned with on the big screen as the producer of 20th Century’s “Free Guy,” which starred Ryan Reynolds and grossed more than $300 million worldwide. Berlanti-Schechter Films subsequently signed a first-look feature deal with Netflix, which could influence where the prodco lands after its $400 million deal with Warner Bros. TV expires in 2024. She also scored renewals for fourth seasons of Netflix’s “You” and HBO Max’s “Doom Patrol,” plus third and second seasons for The CW’s “Stargirl” and “Kung Fu,” respectively.
