TV Superheroes Grant Gustin & Melissa Benoist Cover 'Variety' Magazine With Producer Greg Berlanti

Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist become The Flash and Supergirl, respectively, for the new cover of Variety magazine, alongside their powerhouse producer Greg Berlanti.

Here’s what the 42-year-old TV producer had to share with the mag:

On finding Melissa: “The most important decision you can make as a showrunner when you’re doing a pilot is who’s in it, and who’s directing it. If we had not found her, I would have said, ‘I don’t want to make this.’”

On making new shows: “I don’t want to do more just to do more it if it’s not good…The first thing I’m thinking about in the morning, and the last thing I’m thinking about at night, are usually the newer ones, because you haven’t figured out the algorithm yet. From the moment the shows get picked up until we have an episode that’s as good as the pilot, I’m usually stressed about how we can do it again.”

On how he juggles multiple projects: “Honestly, I’m so reliant on others. It’s the long-term relationships I’ve had that allow me to do multiple things, because you have a shorthand with these people.”
