‘Battlefield’ Video Game From Electronic Arts Is Becoming A TV Show
Paramount Television has teamed up with Anonymous Content to deliver a TV Show based on the popular video game “Battlefield” from Electronic Arts (EA). According to the press release, the planned series will be executive produced by Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta.
“Battlefield” is the multiplayer game that has over 60 million users around the world. Launched in 2002, it is one of the most active games in the EA lineup.
“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,” Amy Powell, the president of Paramount TV stated said.
Paramount TV sees the potential of “Battlefield” as a TV show, which is set to become an expensive war production in the boob tube, per Entertainment Weekly.
The video game, with its solid fan base has long been planned for adaptation, according to 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 15 years.”
“Battlefield” will be in great hands with Anonymous Content, who currently has the critically-acclaimed series “Mr. Robot” on air at the USA Network. It is still unclear where “Battlefield” will air when the show hits the smallscreen. For now, the show is still under the development phase.
