Apple Offered J.J. Abrams Far More Than WarnerMedia; Here’s Why He Said No

While Abrams‘ five-year, $250 million deal seems low compared to the $300 million and $400 million Ryan Murphy and Greg Berlanti received from Netflix and Warner Bros. TV, respectively, the ability to see that figure multiply is vast. (And it’s worth noting that Berlanti and Murphy’s deals were so rich because Warners and Netflix bought out the prolific producers’ profit participation in multiple shows.) Sources note senior execs at Warners’ TV side called the studio’s top producers to downplay the previously reported $500 million figure. – Lesley Goldberg, The Hollywood Reporter ยป https://ift.tt/2ZXGyMi
