Paramount Television Studios & Anonymous Content Part Ways After First-Look Deal Expired

EXCLUSIVE: One of the most fruitful TV production partnerships in the past five years is over. The first-look/co-financing deal between Paramount Television Studios and Anonymous Content expired at the end of 2019 and was not renewed. This does not mean an abrupt end to the companies’ relationship — they have several series on the air and some 18 projects currently in development that they will continue to collaborate on and set up around town, including the recent sale of The Last of the Mohicans TV series to HBO Max.

“Anonymous Content and Paramount Television Studios have mutually agreed not to renew their first look deal, but look forward to continued collaboration on shared current and future projects,” the two companies said in a statement to Deadline.

Going forward, Anonymous Content plans to stay independent so it can work with everybody and set up projects everywhere, sources said.

Just months after its 2013 launch, Paramount Television in May 2014 inked a first-look deal with True Detective producer Anonymous Content in one of the company’s first major programming partnerships. Three years later, the companies extended their deal through the end of 2019 while modifying the first-look agreement to also include a co-financing component, giving Anonymous Content program ownership.
