Since Erlicht’s appointment in 2005, the SPT slate has more than doubled with original network primetime series such as The Blacklist, Timeless and The Night Shift for NBC, The Good Doctor, The Goldbergs, Alex, Inc., the Emmy-winning Shark Tank, and the revivals of $100,000 Pyramid and The Gong Show for ABC, and last season's number one new comedy Kevin Can Wait and new fall procedural S.W.A.T. for CBS. The studio also boasts a prolific roster of primetime cable series that includes Better Call Saul and Preacher for AMC, as well as Outlander for Starz. SPT is also producing a number of high-profile series for multiplatform entertainment networks, such as the Golden Globe Award-winning series The Crown, Bloodline, Atypical and One Day at a Time for Netflix, Sneaky Pete, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams, The Dangerous Book for Boys, The Tick and The Last Tycoon for Amazon, and Shut Eye and Future Man for Hulu.

Under his leadership, Erlicht has also shepherded Emmy Award-winning shows, Rescue Me and Breaking Bad, which was inducted into the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, allowing for researchers and visitors alike to explore how TV drama has influenced American life. The studio’s large library also includes additional Emmys (2 Best Dramas), Golden Globes, and several AFI and WGA Awards.
