Paramount+ Orders Comedic Documentary-Style Series ‘Players’

Number of New Episodes Ordered Not Confirmed

Streamer Paramount+ has given a series order to “Players” from Tony Yacenda and Dan Perrault (“American Vandal”), which is described as a comedic documentary-style series that follows a fictional pro League of Legends esports team, as they pursue their first championship after years of close calls and heartache. To win it all, they will need their prodigy, a 17-year-old rookie, and their 27-year-old veteran to put their egos aside and work together.

“Players” is produced by CBS Studios in association with Funny Or Die. In addition to co-creating and executive producing alongside Dan Perrault, Tony Yacenda will also direct. Funny Or Die’s Joe Farrell and Mike Farah also serve as executive producers alongside Tim McAuliffe, Riot Games, 3Arts’ Ari Lubet and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Todd Sellers.
