Paramount to Adapt Battlefield Video Game to Television Series
Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have announced that they have optioned the rights for "Battlefield", the popular EA DICE video game. The plan is to adapt the game to a television series. The game series, which consists of 11 different games, debuted in 2002, and has acquired over 60 million players worldwide.
"'Battlefield' has a tremendous built-in, engaged fan base, making it a highly coveted piece of IP primed for long-form adaptation," said Anonymous Content's Michael Sugar. "Together with EA and Paramount TV, we'll develop the ‘Battlefield' TV series with the same commitment to robust storytelling that has made the game such a runaway success for nearly fifteen years."
"'Battlefield' is one of the most loved properties among our players. We are thrilled that Anonymous Content and Paramount TV will look to introduce fans to Battlefield through a new medium," said Patrick Söderlund, executive vice president of EA Entertainment.
The series would be executive produced by Anonymous Content's Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta.
