Career

Berlanti made his feature film directorial debut with The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy (2000), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film focused on "the universal themes of romance, acceptance and family", as opposed to AIDS, coming out, and sex, which are more controversial and stereotypical topics commonly covered in LGBT films.[7] The film grossed over 2 million in ticket sales,[8] and received generally positive reviews from critics.[9][10][11]

Berlanti got his start in television as a writer and executive producer on Dawson's Creek before going on to create two of The WB's drama series, 2002's Everwood and 2004's Jack & Bobby.

Film

Berlanti co-wrote and co-produced the DC Comics film Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular character. As the film was not critically nor financially successful, further planned releases were cancelled.[27]

Arrowverse

In December 2011, it was announced that, along with Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, Berlanti would create, write, and produce a series for The CW based on Green Arrow, called Arrow.

On July 30, 2013, it was announced at the summer TCA tour that Berlanti, Kreisberg, and DC Comics CCO Geoff Johns would be introducing Barry Allen in the second season of Arrow, with the possibility of the character being spun off to his own series. Actor Grant Gustin was cast and made his debut in episode 8, "The Scientist". In November 2013, The CW officially ordered a pilot for The Flash,[29] and in May 2014 the network picked the project up to series with a premiere scheduled for autumn of that year.[30] The Flash premiered on October 7, 2014.

On February 26, 2015, it was announced that Berlanti, along with Guggenheim and Kreisberg, would write and executive produce a spin-off series featuring The Atom (Brandon Routh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Martin Stein (Victor Garber), and The White Canary (Caity Lotz), for a potential 2016 premiere.[31] The series was ultimately titled Legends of Tomorrow, and it follows the ragtag team of heroes and villains as they travel through time and space on a mission to stop the devious immortal Vandal Savage.

He has Italian and Irish ancestry.[38] He described his early life in an August 2004 interview with Entertainment Weekly: "We were Italians in a town of WASPs" and his family was not "doing as well as 90% of the community." The Berlanti Productions production logo, which follows each episode of shows he produces, features a family with their backs to the audience and the spoken quote, "Greg, move your head!" This is an homage to Berlanti's father, Gene, who would yell at Greg when he was blocking the television screen. Berlanti graduated from Northwestern University in 1994.[39]
