BATTLEFIELD To Be Adapted For Television


I can think of a few video game properties that could probably go for some serious Netflix-similar treatment should they not end up on the big screen. That said, I never played EA DICE's popular video game, Battlefield, but it appears to have earned a calling and is now subject to a television series of its own with Pararmount TV and Anonymous Content.

The latter company's own Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar will executive produce the series, as inspired by the game dating back to its initial 2002 release, and with a single player sent swept into an all-out game of war via land, sea and air with central focus on maps, vehicles and teamwork.

“Paramount TV actively seeks smart content from all sectors that will resonate with audiences and translate to compelling programming,” said Amy Powell, President, Paramount TV. “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.” 
“Battlefield has a tremendous built-in, engaged fan base, making it a highly coveted piece of IP primed for long-form adaptation,” said Sugar, partner, Anonymous Content. “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.” 
“Michael’s track record speaks for itself,” added Patrick O’Brien, Vice President of EA Entertainment. “Combined with his passion for Battlefield, we cannot imagine a better team than Anonymous Content and Paramount for this project.”

Stay tuned!
