You have to try hard not to spot Greg Berlanti's name in the trades these days. The prolific writer/producer has three shows currently in production (The Flash, Arrow, The Mysteries of Laura), and just got the green light on several other projects, including Supergirl for CBS and Blindspot for NBC.
Berlanti, who got his start writing on Dawson's Creek, has found his sweet spot developing shows with DC Comics and Warner Brothers. His take on The Flash hearkens back to its 1960's origins, being rooted in science but maintaining a pop exuberance.
