EXCLUSIVE: Morgan Wandell has left Greg Berlanti TV after a two-year stint at the ABC Studios-based production company. The departure, which comes at the end of Wandell’s contract, was amicable and Wandell will stay in business with Berlanti. He will be a full-time non-writing executive producer on Berlanti TV’s new ABC series, No Ordinary Family, which he helped develop, and also is working with Berlanti on 1-2 other upcoming projects. Wandell left his post as SVP drama for ABC Studios two years ago to run Berlanti TV. Now I hear Berlanti is looking to develop fewer shows as he is also working on four features. Additionally, his way of generating projects is less dependent on development executives as it relies on his existing relationships with a group of writer friends with whom he frequently collaborates. Berlanti’s long-time development executive Melissa Berman will now run Berlanti TV’s day-to-day operations as president, spearheading development as she did before Wandell’s arrival when the company fielded new series Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone.
