Berlanti, who holds the record for most shows on U.S television networks at the same time (with 11), will receive the award at the International Emmy gala Nov. 19 in New York.
Through his Berlanti Productions banner he is working on several series, including Lifetime’s straight-to-series thriller You; ABC’s new series Deception; and the as-yet-untitled Sabrina series for Netflix, based on the original hit show about a teenage witch.
“Greg Berlanti is a renaissance producer whose shows and characters have the unique power to strike a chord with global audiences across all genres and demographics,” said Academy president and CEO Bruce L. Paisner. “We look forward to honoring his remarkable body of work with our Founders Award.”
Saying he was “humbled and honored” to be recognized, Berlanti added it was “incredibly rewarding” to know that “our shows are reaching a global audience…. I endeavor to continue to be a part of meaningful and entertaining content that resonates with a worldwide fan base.”
