PARAMOUNT NETWORK AND TIME INC. PRODUCTIONS TO COLLABORATE ON PREMIUM NON-SCRIPTED PROJECTS

Jerry Bruckheimer Television to Co-Produce SPORTS ILLUSTRATED True Crime Series

Late Night Series Based on ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S "The Bullseye"

New York, New York, October 30, 2017 - Paramount Network has joined forces with Emmy(R)-winning Time Inc. Productions for a multi-project deal for unique and immersive non-scripted series, which are currently in pilot production. The partnership with Paramount Network, launching January 18, 2018, will feature series linked to Time Inc.'s SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.

From SPORTS ILLUSTRATED and Jerry Bruckheimer TV, "Sports Illustrated: True Crime" (working title) investigates the complicated truths and realities of athletes involved in criminal activity and misdeeds. The one-hour television series is based on SPORTS ILLUSTRATED'S multiplatform "SI True Crime" franchise. Each television episode will be accompanied by a piece on SI.com and in the print magazine, offering an unprecedented multiplatform experience.

Also ordered to pilot with Time Inc. Productions is "Entertainment Weekly: The Bullseye," a late-night, comedy panel/talk show based on the magazine's wildly popular, signature column "The Bullseye." The half-hour series will have a celebrity host and panelists who square off and debate which of the week's pop culture stories are right on target and which ones miss the mark. Time Inc. Productions and Conveyor Media are producing with "The Bullseye" ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY writer Marc Snetiker consulting on the project.

Chachi Senior, Senior Vice President, Alternative Programming, Paramount Network, will oversee the projects for the network along with Tori Socha Vice President, Development and Dana Tuinier, Vice President, Development and Original Programming. Time Inc. Productions is led by Bruce Gersh, SVP Strategy and Business Development, and Ian Orefice, Head of Programming.
