Paramount Television and Anonymous Content are heading for the battlefield.
The two entities are teaming to bring Electronic Arts' popular video game franchise Battlefield to the small screen, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The two companies have optioned the rights to the game from DICE and EA, with Michael Sugar and Ashley Zalta set to exec produce.
The Battlefield series is a multiplayer game that features wars across land, sea and air. The Battlefield franchise has amassed more than 60 million players worldwide since debuting in 2002, and boasts a highly engaged audiences across its multiple titles. Since its 2002 launch, the franchise has featured 11 games and 12 expansion packs. The new Battlefield debuts in October.
The deal expands Paramount TV's relationship with Anonymous Content, the latter of which has a first-look pact with the studio. A network for Battlefield is not yet attached, though Anonymous Content's deal is for broadcast, premium cable, cable and streaming. It marks both companies first foray into programming based on a video game franchise.
Seems weird since Battlefield is just a blank slate. There's not really series established characters or consistent conflicts. Just buying the brand recognition I guess.

Will the show be about that dude who take the chopper just so he can get to highest tower and snipe for the entire match and get no kills while doing it?
I look forward to the scene where 10 people rush towards a plane and the guy who gets in then immediately crashes it.
There was one in production, by Happy Madison Productions. Adam Sandler production company.
So Kevin James and Rob would be someone in there!
