Is Greg Berlanti the hardest working gay man in Hollywood?

He produces pretty much the entire CW line up and tons of Netflix hits.

His company does Berlanti does not have much hands in the CW DC series - he is looking to take the leap to big budget.

by Anonymousreply 410/15/2020

I think he is - incredibly prolific, perhaps just barely pipping Ryan Murphy to the top spot.

I never knew he directed The Broken Hearts Club - a 'gay' movie that I actually liked.

by Anonymousreply 510/16/2020

How many of his shows actually feature a leading gay male character ? Or even an openly gay male ?

by Anonymousreply 610/16/2020

R6 leading? I think just Love Simon.

Ryan Murphy and Greg Berlanti are both sellouts, hacks, and the gay male equivalent of handmaids.

He's doing all right at home, too.

How many of his shows actual rise above the level of your typical CW schlock? I.e. pretty, interchangeable people in a high school level of acting production?

by Anonymousreply 1410/16/2020

His take on Green Arrow was interesting to start but it got pretty schlocky. Same with the Flash.

by Anonymousreply 1510/16/2020

Why is Robbie reading his own book at r9? Or did he not actually write it?

by Anonymousreply 1610/16/2020

I hated LOVE SIMON so much: such a missed opportunity to speak to/about the reality of gay youth. Instead, we got the prettified Tiger Beat wank-off fantasies of a middle-aged gay man. (I've heard the streaming series is better, but I'll pass.)

Ryan Murphy gets a lot of shit on DL, much of it deserved, but Berlanti is every bit his equal: a phenomenally successful hack.

by Anonymousreply 1710/16/2020

I'm not aware of any new villains that he has created for the various CW shows that he is affiliated with.

He steals from the comic book writers who have made 99% of the characters

& plots on "his" shows so how hard working could he be?

Green Arrow was basically Batman. The same they made Supergirl the female version of Superman instead of closer to her comic book counterpart.

r19 kind of. Just much later in life. The earth 2 stuff was kind of cool but I hate what they did with Black Canary. Then in birds of prey they made his a POC.

No gossip on his personal life? DL is slipping.

True story. He turned Robbie into a housewife and filled him up with kids so he would never leave. He’ll tell you himself if you ask him.

"You" and "Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina" are my favorite Berlanti shows.

But Greg's projects generally do well. Murphy has faltered in the past few years.

Between his CW shows, Netflix deal & now his HBO Max shows he's solid. He just doesn't seem to get as much credit because he doesn't ever really try to reinvent the wheel since he uses established properties.

[quote]Wasn't Robbie trying for a clothes lines?

That was quite a while ago.

As for Greg allegedly cheating? They've got money up the yin yang. I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't much care, if any of that is true. He doesn't have to do anything for the rest of his life.

Robbie wasn't a shop bottom. He was a sportsman. He will break eventually.

by Anonymousreply 3210/17/2020

He is mainstream but hugely successful. I don’t watch all of his shows but quite enjoyed All American and You. Sabrina got too stupid but had a lot of gay/bi characters. And as stated he did Love Simon and Batwoman is gay correct? So... but he is an attractive successful gay man, quick tear him down, inply he cheats, is nasty in the workplace, is not furthering gay visibility. Get him! Get him!

Agreed. Why do people gossip on a gossip forum?

by Anonymousreply 3510/17/2020

Gossip is fine. But just randomly saying anything because of jealousy not based in anything other than your own issues should be called out.

Most athletes don't have long careers or become famous for playing sports. You [italic]always[/italic] have to have a backup plan.

Hell, he retired because of his constant injuries.

You miss my point. Even if soccer means nothing in American life, Robbie has worked hard to achieve something. If you think he'll be content to sit back and eat bonbons for the rest of his life, you're sadly mistaken. Achievement is part of his make up. He hasn't been raised to be a consort.

The Arrowverse ones are.

by Anonymousreply 4110/17/2020

But no one has offered anything in terms of gossip. They have said he cheated. He uses fear in the workplace.How? How do you know? Is there evidence of this? Are you someone that enjoys bringing people down that seem happy? What an ugly trait and that is why I am calling it out and calling you out. It’s like I will say anything random with no proof or context. It’s like you are the Trump administration. This isn’t QAnon despite some evidence to the contrary.

Oh, no! I understood your point. You clearly missed mine: He doesn't have to do anything ever.

And you speculating that "achievement is part of his makeup" while he -- sits at home?!? Does not invalidate what I said.

He married someone who is extremely wealthy. He doesn't have to work unless he wants to and if he doesn't right now he's (again) clearly married to right person.

[quote]He hasn't been raised to be a consort.

Sure, Jan. No one is, but they become them all the same. I'm sure he just loves the man.

If he is cheating on him (although I've never heard that one before) then you have to either assume he's stupid or he doesn't care. There are plenty of gay men who are in open relationships who wouldn't and many of them aren't married to a power gay in Hollywood.

Berlanti hates gay men. That is why they are missing from his shows.

Plenty of bull daggers, trans, chicks with ficks though...
