The Battlefield TV series is inching closer to fruition. Electronic Arts recently revealed that Michael Sugar, one of the producers behind last year’s Oscar-winner for Best Picture, Spotlight, will be working on the show. Along with production house Anonymous Content’s Ashley Zalta, Sugar will serve as executive producer. It’s also the first time Anonymous and Paramount TV have worked on a video game property. Previous projects include The Revenant, both seasons of True Detective and Mr. Robot. Suffice to say, there’s a lot of talent with the team that’s been announced so far.
The question is, will the program crib from the Mirror’s Edge TV show the way Battlefield 1 has from Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst? If you missed Spotlight last year during its theatrical run, it’s currently available to stream on Netflix.
