Greg Berlanti is a WGA, DGA, Golden Globe and Emmy nominated writer, director, and producer. He began his career in television as a staff writer on the hit show Dawson’s Creek and became an executive producer and showrunner of the series after only one year on staff. Since then, Berlanti has served as creator, writer, and producer behind several of the most inventive and biggest hits on television, including You, Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, Political Animals, Arrow, Blindspot, The Flash, Supergirl, Riverdale, Titans, Doom Patrol, All American, and The Flight Attendant, which has received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. For the past few years, Berlanti Productions has had as many as 15 shows on the air at one time — a record breaking number of shows to air at one time for a tv producer and creator.

Julie Plec is a creator, showrunner, executive producer and director, most notably responsible for the complete “Vampire Diaries” Universe (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals,” and “Legacies”), which has spanned 13 years and more than 300 episodes of television. Plec most recently served as co-creator and co-showrunner of “Vampire Academy,” based on the popular book series, which aired on Peacock. She is also an executive producer of “Girls on the Bus,” which has wrapped production for HBO Max. Plec is under an overall deal at Universal Television, where she and Emily Cummins, president of her production company, My So-Called Company, have projects in active development across multiple platforms, including “We Were Liars” at Amazon, based on the bestselling novel by E. Lockhart; “Confessions” at Netflix, which reunites Plec with fellow “Vampire Diaries'” alum Paul Wesley; and both “Clifton” and “Freeman” at Peacock.
