With 14 series in transmission, cable and transmission networks, Greg Berlanti is the current record for the busiest small-screen producer in the industry. But it shows no signs of slowing down, having re-signed its general agreement with Warner Bros. to develop and produce additional projects.
“What allows me to go from one thing to another more than anything else is when I’m passionate about the stories and the people I’m moving with,” says Berlanti, who is being honored with the Intl. Emmy Founders Award on 19 November.
Most of Berlanti’s current slate comes from dramatic adaptations of DC Comics properties, from “The Flash” by CW to “Titans” by DC Universe and even some animated series for CW Seed. The comic book world was an important part of his childhood, and he was delighted to use that programming to fill a gap in television. Now he is looking to be as innovative in other genres as musical and narrative structures, including limited series.
The key to reaching audiences through demographic data and data lines, he says, is to “be as specific as possible” with characters and plots. “It’s about making him feel fresh,” he says.

Berlanti’s first job in the business was as a writer at “Dawson’s Creek,” where he started in 1998. He quickly rose in the producer category from “Jack & Bobby” to “Brothers & Sisters” to “You” and “Riverdale.” “Now, he knows that he has experienced so much that he has even more to say.
“I think it’s important if you’re a writer, and that’s what I went first and the last thing I’ll do, check your voice every three or four years and write something completely original,” says Berlanti. “I’m excited to do that again.”
Despite his decades of experience, Berlanti says he’s still learning, in part because television is “a different art form now,” with so many emerging platforms to sell, new technologies to take advantage of, longer work weeks per episode and the constant flow of new artists with whom to potentially collaborate.
But with his Berlanti Prods. Empire has surrounded itself with those who will only raise its success.
“I learned a lot from Greg, both professionally, but also, I think the most important thing, personally, only about integrity, kindness and patience,” says production president Sarah Schechter. “I have worked with thousands of people, and he is the best.”
