Paramount Television Obtains Battlefield Rights



LOS ANGELES, CA (July XX, 2016) – Paramount Television and Anonymous
Content have optioned the rights to one of the most successful and dynamic
videogames, Battlefield™, from DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc.
studio. Michael Sugar, 2016 Academy Award winner, and Ashley Zalta from
Anonymous Content will serve as executive producers.

The Battlefield series has consistently been praised by critics for its
world-class multiplayer gameplay, and is recognized for delivering the
premier all-out war experience across land, sea and air. The award-winning
franchise has amassed more than 60 million players worldwide since debuting
in 2002, and the franchise continues to boast highly-engaged audiences
across its catalogue titles.

“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 Michael
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.”

“Battlefield is one of the most loved properties among our players,” said
Patrick Söderlund, Executive Vice President, EA. “We are thrilled that
Anonymous Content and Paramount TV will look to introduce fans to
Battlefield through a new medium.”

Battlefield continues the partnership between Anonymous Content and
Paramount TV, which have a first-look production deal for scripted
television programming across broadcast, premium cable, cable and online
audiences. This marks the organizations’ entrée into content based on a
videogame franchise.

“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.”
