EXCLUSIVE: Ben Silverman and Howard Owen’s Propagate has teamed with Asmodee Entertainment to develop a TV adventure competition series based on Alan R. Moon’s best-selling adventure board game, Ticket To Ride.
The iconic board game, published by Days of Wonder and Asmodee Studios, has been played over 65 million times online and sold over six million copies in more than 40 countries around the world. The television adaptation will be a winner-take-all travel competition series in which five teams take the journey of a lifetime as they seek to complete epic challenges and rack up the most miles by air, land and sea.

We are delighted to bring one of our most iconic properties to life with the help of our visionary partners at Propagate. We look forward to future collaborations,” said Asmodee’s President Stéphane Carville.
