Riot Games are looking to venture more into the entertainment industry, after signing a former Netflix executive for a possible ‘Riot Games universe’ show expansion.
As reported by IGN, Brian Wright, who previously worked for the subscription-based service and helped bring shows such as Stranger Things and 13 Reasons Why to the platform, was signed by Riot Games as their Chief Content Officer.
Riot For Some Netflix-Level Shows
Riot also mentioned that Wright works to “bridge the relationship between gaming and entertainment industries.” With this move, a possibility for their entertainment universe could be on its way, and one of their debut projects for this is Arcane, the animated series coming to Netflix this year. That features a storyline of some League of Legends champions, such as Jinx and Vi.
Also, a mockumentary about a fictional LOL eSports team is reportedly in the works. Titled PLAYERS, it'll be headed by Riot Games and the creators of American Vandal, which is being released by Paramount+.
