Greg Berlanti, producer of the CW’s Arrow, Superman & Lois, DC’s Stargirl, Gotham Knights, Riverdale, Supergirl, The Flash, Doom Patrol, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Titans, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and the movies Green Lantern, Green Lantern: Emerald Nights, Free Guy and Moonshot has received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as of today, Monday, May 23, 2022.
“I’m sure I’m not the first person to receive a star who feels shocked or undeserving or overwhelmed with gratitude, but I’m feeling all of that,” Berlanti told City News Service.
“It’s a wonderful acknowledgement of all the TV shows I’ve been so lucky and proud to be a part of, and just makes me even more thankful for all the friends, family, coworkers and audiences that have made a life like mine and a moment like this one possible.”
Berlanti’s producing partner Sarah Schechter, Glee creator Ryan Murphy — a longtime friend — and former Warner Bros. Television Studios chairman and chief executive officer Peter Roth joined Berlanti in speaking at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony at 6420 Hollywood Blvd., between Cahuenga Boulevard and Wilcox Avenue.
The star is the 2,724th since the completion of the Walk of Fame in 1961 with the first 1,558 stars.
Greg Berlanti began his career in television in 1997 as a writer on the then-new WB teen drama Dawson’s Creek, becoming an executive producer and showrunner of the series after only one year on staff.
In the 2017-18 television season, Berlanti tied Jerry Bruckheimer’s 2005-06 record in having 10 live-action scripted series airing on various networks and digital platforms. He set the record in the 2018-19 season with 14 series.
Berlanti is also an executive producer of the HBO Max’s dark comedy-drama mystery thriller The Flight Attendant, which received an outstanding comedy series Emmy nomination in 2021.
The next film Berlanti plans to direct is a film biography of the late actor Rock Hudson.
