FaZe Clan launches new film studio with ‘13 Reasons Why’ producer


Leading Esports organization FaZe clan today announced that they have partnered with Oscar-winning film and television producer Michael Sugar, who help create 13 Reasons Why, to found FaZe Studios.

The new studio will focus on creating feature films and scripted television series that fit the tone of FaZe’s “aspirational gaming lifestyle” brand.

“This will be in theaters, on Netflix — this could be everywhere,” Trink says of where FaZe Studios’ content will live. “We’re going everywhere you would find long-form content. This is not meant to be about the world that exists now or any established rules of content. This is about disruption.”

Outside of creating its own content, Trink says FaZe Studios is also open to distributing and working with outside creatives, particularly amid the current coronavirus pandemic. “We’re one of the few sports and entertainment companies that is still firing on all cylinders,” he says. “We’re absolutely interested in working with outside creators and releasing films through this studio if it’s something that resonates with us and our audience.”

“I think FaZe can be tantamount to Disney or Marvel,” he says. “When they do something, we want the brand to be synonymous with something that pushes culture and challenges the norm.”
