A TV series based on the Battlefield series is being developed by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, Electronic Arts has announced. Anonymous Content's Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta will be the executive producers of this series.
"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. "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."
With a fanbase of over 60 millions players and gameplay that is praised by critics for its all-out war experience across land, sea and air, the potential audience for this Battlefield project is certainly big. Electronic Arts and Paramount have yet to reveal when will the show be broadcast or when the shooting will begin.
Meanwhile, Battlefield 1 releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC on the 21st of October.
