“Time Warner and their brands have long been pioneers of what incredible, premium content looks like, and we’re thrilled that innovators across their expansive network will begin producing Shows for Snapchat,” said Nick Bell, Vice President of Content for Snap in a statement. “This partnership is another exciting step as we continue to branch out into new genres, including scripted dramas, comedies, daily news Shows, documentaries, and beyond.”

As part of the partnership, Time Warner will invest in ads on Snapchat for its HBO, Turner and Warner Bros properties.

The deal helps Snap continue to bolster its slate of original content on Snapchat. The app offers about one original show per day, but will look to have three original pieces airing daily by the end of the year.

Executive VP of Corporate Marketing and Communications, in a statement. “Partnering with Snap will help drive this compelling new format, exposing its user base to innovative and engaging video from brands and characters they trust and enjoy.”
