The Hasbro strategy board game of diplomacy, war and conquest is being adapted as a TV series from the Hasbro-owned studio Entertainment One. Risk was invented by French filmmaker Albert Lamorisse in 1957, becoming one of the most popular board games in history. "In Beau, we've found an amazing combination of brilliant producer, singular creator, and avid fan of Risk," says Michael Lombardo, president of TV for eOne. "We can't wait to work with him and the rest of the Westward team to reimagine that brand and so much more." Willimon and Jordan Tappis' production company, Westward, will make Risk as part of a first-look deal with eOne. "All of us at Westward are thrilled to join forces with eOne to bring to life some of the most successful IP in the marketplace as well as partner on our extensive slate of scripted television show," says Willimon and Tappis. "We’re excited to develop Risk as our first project together."
