Greg Berlanti inks a Warner Bros. TV mega-deal that could be worth $400 million
Berlanti, who now produces a record-breaking 14 TV shows, will stay with Warner Bros. TV through 2024 under his new pact. The deal is only for his TV work. Berlanti, who recently directed Love, Simon, has a separate film deal with Fox. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the deal is "worth $400 million in all-cash guarantees," adding that Warner Bros. executives "aggressively pursued Berlanti for a new deal. Berlanti, who values loyalty, is said to have been happy at the studio and did not take meetings with any other outlet despite interest from Netflix, among other outlets." (Other sources say the deal is worth "more than $300 million.")

Keiynan Lonsdale explains his Arrowverse exit
Lonsdale, who jumped from The Flash to Legends of Tomorrow last season, says he won't be back full-time on either series next year. “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably noticed lol), and for infinite reasons my perspective on life & what I want from it now is just completely different,” he explained on Instagram. “Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path, and I’m so damn grateful to both shows for honouring & respecting that with me.”

CW renews 10 shows, including Riverdale, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Dynasty
Black Lightning, Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Supergirl will also be back next season. CW shows yet to be renewed include The 100, iZombie, Life Sentence and Valor. The most baffling renewal is Dynasty. "Midway through its freshman run, Dynasty recently slipped to an almost mythical 0.1 demo rating, though Nicollette Sheridan’s debut as Alexis seems to have resuscitated the numbers, some," as Matt Webb Mitovich points out. UPDATE: Rachel Bloom tweets Season 4 will be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's "final season."

Greg Berlanti on former Arrowverse showrunner Andrew Kreisberg: “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused”
Berlanti, who’s been juggling 10 shows across his Berlanti Productions, says he first learned of the sexual harassment allegations against Kreisberg one week before they were published in Variety. Berlanti says he did know that Kreisberg had anger management issues, but not about the sexual harassment complaints. “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused,” Berlanti tells Variety. “But my overwhelming desire then and to this moment was how can I fix this, how can I help people that may have been hurt in any way. That is still the predominant feeling I have about all of it. So that supersedes all of the other feelings and emotions.”
