It has been announced that EA together with Paramount Television and Anonymous Content will be bringing the highly successful gaming franchise Battlefield to the small screen.
Along with the announcement, it was revealed that Micheal Sugar, 2016 Academy winner and Ashley Zalta from Anonymous Content will serve as executive producers.
“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.”
Micheal Sugar also said that Anonymous Content, Paramount, and EA will be working together to develop the Battlefield TV Series with the same commitment and passion that has made the game such a run-away hit.
I’m not sure exactly how the game will translate into a TV series, but if done right it could make for a fascinating show. It would also be interesting to see in what era the series will take place as the franchise has been based on warfare ranging from WWI to more modern warfare . Personally, I would love it if the series took its inspiration from Battlefield 1 by taking place during WW I.They could even have each season take place during a different conflict in a different time period.
