The showrunner who oversaw the successful launch of “Brothers & Sisters” and was behind ABC series “Eli Stone,” “Dirty Sexy Money” and “No Ordinary Family” is making a move from ABC Studios back to his former company, Deadline.com reports.
Greg Berlanti returns to Warner Bros. TV with an eight-figure deal that places him among the studio’s elite writer producers, such as Chuck Lorre, J.J. Abrams and Bill Lawrence, the story says.
Berlanti has seen his film film career take off since he signed a five-year deal with ABC three years ago, which may have created conflicts with his duties at ABC, the story reports. His film deal has been with Warner Bros., including co-writing and producing its upcoming “Green Lantern” movie.
ABC reportedly gave Berlanti an out from his contract, clearing the way for his return to Warner Bros., where he spent four years before he landed at ABC.
