“This new partnership with Paramount Television creates limitless opportunities for our emerging television business, and we are thrilled to be taking the next step with Brad, Amy and their terrific team,” said Anonymous Content managing partners Steve Golin and Michael Sugar in a joint statement.

“We’re very excited to be collaborating with Anonymous Content as we continue to establish Paramount Television as a home for creative talent and find partners who share in our vision for compelling and original television programming,” said Amy Powell, president of Paramount Television, in a statement. “The Anonymous team has an incredible track record for developing masterful storytelling and we look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

The deal marks the first of its kind for Paramount’s newly created television studio. Along with “True Detective,” Anonymous also exec produced Cinemax’s upcoming period drama “The Knick,” which is directed by Steven Soderbergh and premieres this summer.
