Greg Berlanti reacts to his 14-show record -- and whether he'd ever reboot Everwood
The uber-producer saw only one of his shows canceled (ABC's Deception) this season, while four were picked up over the past few days (CBS' God Friended Me and The Red Line, CW's All American and DC Universe's Doom Patrol). This allowed him to break a new record for on-air TV series that was previously set by Aaron Spelling and Jerry Bruckheimer. "My secret dream," says Berlanti, "is that other people that work with me get more credit for all the hard work that they do because they work just as hard and so I’m really proud to be a part of all of it, but I don’t feel like an author for that. I feel like I’m just on a really great team. That’s the truth." Once upon a time, Berlanti had only one show on the air, The WB's Everwood, which featured future stars Chris Pratt, Emily VanCamp and Sarah Drew. "Definitely of all of them, Everwood is the one that has a special song in my heart," he says. "I think it’s about schedules and finances and budget and if we can get a budget to a place, I think that there’s a real shot that that could come back. I think we just have to figure out what would be the best way to do it, but there’s no nothing firm in place yet."
