Netflix just got a whole lot more interesting now that the talented team of Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter have joined the streaming service for an exclusive first-look feature film deal, Deadline has learned exclusively.
The agreement with Netflix comes two and a half years before Berlanti’s huge overall deal with Warner Bros. Television is slated to end.
“We love telling stories, and over the last few years, we have had an incredible time telling them with Ted, Bela, and everyone at Netflix on the TV side, and we couldn’t be more excited to be getting a chance to begin our relationship with Scott and his team on the film side,” said Berlanti & Schechter to Deadline. “We have been so impressed by the home for filmmakers Scott and everyone there has built (this is a literal coming home for Sarah since she and the amazing Kira Goldberg were once roommates). We cannot wait to roll up our sleeves and get to work making a broad range of emotional, entertaining, and impactful stories for the massive global audience that Netflix has.”
Berlanti currently has 14 on-air series, including the popular Netflix drama You and several CW shows including Riverdale, All American, and The Flash. Berlanti Productions also produced Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. As a director, Berlanti is known for his work on The Broken Hearts Club and Love, Simon.
