Which Writer-Producer Has More Dramas on the Air This Season Than Anyone Else? Hint: She Just Signed a New Three-Year Deal With Warner Bros. TV Deadline
The writer-producer who has more drama series on the air this season than anyone else has extended her relationship with Warner Bros. TV. Writing on Deadline.com, Nellie Andreeva reports that “The Vampire Diaries” showrunner Julie Plec has signed a “rich new three-year overall deal” with the company, which is ensuring one of its most prolific writer-producers remains put.
Plec, who developed “The Vampire Diaries,” also is the showrunner on its spinoff “The Originals,” with both series already renewed for next season. She’s also the executive producer on CW’s “The Tomorrow People,” which is also from WBTV.
That means Plec has “three drama series on the air this season, the most for a writing producer on broadcast TV,” the story notes.
Andreeva writes: “Under the new pact, Plec will continue as showrunner on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ the CW’s highest-rated series, as well as ‘The Originals,’ the network’s top freshman series, and will develop new projects in addition to executive producing ‘The Tomorrow People’ if it goes to a second season.
