It’s safe to say Berlanti brings in his shows, on time & on or possibly a tiny bit under. If a producer didn’t meet target oh by the way and cut 10 to 13 episodes, if they wont pay the about 8 million an episode to make, and we ain’t gonna front that 24 million. Especially because the already screwed up the revenue they had, would you give the 24 million out of your pocket?

I have no idea what you’re talking about, I just found it interesting that Greg Berlanti’s production company produces every DC live action series (with the exception of Krypton and Pennyworth) on both the CW and DCU except for Swamp Thing…

And I didn’t forget about iZombie, Lucifer and Preacher, but those are all Vertigo…

Berlanti has it down to a science. Please realize though that the special effects are made by third party studios. Titans and Doom Patrol are done by the same studio.

Bertaneli brings in shows on time and at budget. With ST having to cut itself down to 10 from 13 episodes, the non-Bertaneli production team had “issues”.

Fitting for Berlanti to be in charge of shows on the CW. Wish they had a wider variety of producers.

If Berlanti has a proven track record of coming in on time and on budget, they should keep them. I find it difficult to believe that one of the “artistic differences” in cutting Swamp Thing from 13 to 10 episodes was budget. If a producer is coming up short by 20% of budget to make the show they promised. If I was DCU Originals I wouldn’t trust them to do another show. If it was your money, would you?

Just because he is on time and budget, that does not merit that the quality will reflect. Look at James Wan’s Aquaman. It was delayed, and the wait paid off. Then, you look at Greg Berlanti’s Green Lantern. The movie was horrible. I think when the director is in charge of a movie where the character has a similar personality, the movie succeeds. But, someone like Berlanti taking over a character like Green Lantern will not end well. There are some perspectives to the the media aspect that get overlooked, whether because it can cause controversy or cause people to re-examine viewpoints, but I hope that a day will come when people gladly discuss them.

The consumer has never seen the cut of Green Lantern intended by the director and original editor of the movie. Or, in fact, the leading actor.

The man’s a fraggin hit machine

He’s a producer. That’s his job, on time and on budget. Why? Cuz that’s how you make money. Especially the budget. Aquaman was late, but still on budget.

That production company does deliver a quality product of the type/style they are trying to make for the particular show. Now, you may not like the type and/or style. But, it sells. It makes money.

You know the definition of “good” in Hollywood…it makes money. That is ultimately the only perspective that matters.

If you want a company to stay in business, it needs to make money. That’s not being a “company man”. That’s being a realist.

Media is a coin operated machine, buttercups.
