Atari Studios is dedicated to bringing the rich and iconic Atari games to television and digital media across the globe. Led by former executives from Fremantle Media, IMG and NBC Universal, Atari Studios works with broadcasters and content creators to bring Atari’s games to life.
“Atari has brand equity and tremendous recognition in the 18-54 year old demographic” says Fred Chesnais, Chairman of the Board of Atari “and we believe our brand and our games have the power to break through the clutter and bring success to our partners”.
Atari Studios has recently aired a 20 episode series of a live action game show based on the classic Atari game Codebreaker, created by Steve Jobs, on Discovery Science Europe where the show saw significant viewership and critical acclaim.
