Greg Berlanti & Robbie Rogers

Greg Berlanti (born May 24, 1972) is an American television writer, producer and director. He is the creator of the cult television series Everwood and co-creator of Jack & Bobby, No Ordinary Family, and Arrow. He also co-wrote the 2011 DC Comics film Green Lantern. TMZ reports that Greg Berlanti is dating since May 2013 Robbie Rogers, who plays for the LA Galaxy and is one of 2013 OUT100 honorees. (P: Genevieve. Greg Berlanti, 2012)

Berlanti was born in Rye, New York. His parents are Barbara Moller Berlanti and Eugene Berlanti. Greg has one sister, Dina and is the uncle of two nieces. He has Italian and Irish ancestry. He described his early life in an August 2004 interview with Entertainment Weekly: "We were Italians in a town of WASPs" and his family was not "doing as well as 90% of the community." The Berlanti Television production logo, which follows each episode of shows he produces, features a family with their backs to the audience and the spoken quote, "Greg, move your head!" This is an homage to Berlanti's father, Gene, who would yell at Greg when he was blocking the television screen.

He is the writer, creator, and producer behind several creative and lauded television series, including ABC's Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone, and Political Animals. He got his start in television as a writer and executive producer on Dawson's Creek before going on to create two of the WB's most critically acclaimed dramas, Everwood and Jack & Bobby.

Berlanti co-wrote and co-produced the DC Comics film Green Lantern, as well as directed the 2010 film Life As We Know It, starring Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel. He is set to produce Pan for Warner Bros. under his Berlanti Productions banner. The film is due for released on July 17, 2015.

It's summertime in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and everything is beautiful. The town, the weather, the ocean, the people. For four months this seaside community becomes a playground for vacationers seeking to soak up all the fun the town has to offer. But this summer will be different, when devastating secrets threaten to destroy a family and nearly everyone they will come to know. A fugitive murderer, a wayward socialite, a deceptive med student, and a destructive sociopath all set the stage for a combustive summer. One filled with sex, lies, secrets, betrayals, vendettas, and a revenge that will scandalize this town beyond anyone's imagination. From Miami Beach to Rehoboth Beach and from Cinco de Mayo to Labor Day, a trail of blood and destruction will snake its way through the lives of a select group of individuals who will become forever connected by the depth of hatred and the stain of murder.

Sometimes your first love is the one that was meant to be. Craig Harper and Jeremy Finn were best friends growing up. They attended the same school, spent all of their time together, and hung out with the same group of people. It wasn't until the day before Jeremy and his family moved across the country that they discovered their attraction to one another. Fifteen years later, they reunite by chance in New York City. Both are in relationships and have established a routine in their lives. But routines and relationships are shaken as they begin to spend time together once again. Old feelings and connections are still strong and the passion that pulls them together is a powerful, soul-searing call neither man can deny. As each deals with the issues in their own relationships, they begin to question whether the comfort of what they know is more powerful than the pull of what they could have been…and what they might become. Struggling to find the answer, only their hearts can reveal if they are meant for each other.
