Paramount Pictures and Anonymous Content are set to take one of Electronic Arts’ popular franchises to the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, EA’s Battlefield will become a TV show.
This deal marks the first time both companies get the IP rights of a video game franchise for broadcast, premium cable and streaming. Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar will be the executives producers.
“Paramount TV actively seeks smart content from all sectors that will resonate with audiences and translate to compelling programming,” said Paramount TV president Amy Powell. “EA’s Battlefield has an incredibly dynamic narrative, coupled with a loyal fan base, which will allow us to bring this exciting and unique property to the small screen. We look forward to working with EA and Anonymous Content and thank Michael Sugar for his tenacity in bringing us this exciting project.”
