“On the heels of Greg Berlanti setting a new record for a producer with 14 live-action scripted series on the air, he has re-upped his overall deal with the studio behind all of his shows,” writes Nellie Andreeva for Deadline.

She continues, “Berlanti has signed a giant extension of his exclusive overall development and production deal with Warner Bros. Television Group that would keep him at the studio through 2024. No financial terms are being disclosed but sources peg the pact at more than $300 million over the next six years. It includes the studio buying out Berlanti’s back-end, which is not unusual in the biggest overall pacts for the top TV showrunners. There are additional guarantees and incentives if Berlanti keeps up the volume of his slate that could potentially push the value of the deal toward $400 million.”

Here are the 14 shows Berlanti currently has on-air, according to the Deadline story:

“‘All American,’ Arrow,’ ‘Black Lightning,’ ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Riverdale’ and ‘Supergirl’ for The CW; ‘Blindspot’ for NBC; ‘God Friended Me’ and ‘The Red Line’ for CBS; ‘Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’ for Netflix; ‘Doom Patrol’ and ‘Titans’ for the DC Universe digital service; and ‘You’ for Lifetime.
