On March 4, 2013, Viacom president/CEO Philippe Dauman announced that Paramount opted to produce a television series based on one of their films. The show would allow Paramount to “get back, with very little investment, into the television production business.” Hours later, Paramount chairman/CEO Brad Grey announced that the studio was co-producing a CBS TV series based on Beverly Hills Cop with Sony Pictures Television; however, the show never got past the pilot phase. On July 22, 2013, it was announced that Amy Powell was made president of Paramount Television. The current Paramount Television has no ties to the CBS network, unlike the previous incarnation in its later years after the Viacom/CBS split.
A TV series based on the film School of Rock has also been announced to air on Nickelodeon. Paramount and HBO are planning a new series titled Ashecliffe, which will serve as a prequel to the 2010 Paramount film Shutter Island.
In July 2018, Powell was fired from her position as president in July 2018, following reports that several people had "concerns around [Powell's] comments [made in a] professional setting, which they believed were inconsistent" with Viacom's and Paramount's values. Powell countered the claims that she had made such insensitive comments and said she was considering legal action.
In September 2018, Nicole Clemens became the new president of Paramount Television.
