NBCUniversal is partnering with Snap on a new digital content studio, aimed at adding scripted programming to Snapchat’s Shows platform. Lauren Anderson, formerly SVP of primetime programming at NBC, will head the effort as chief content officer. Snap also has a deal with Mark and Jay Duplas’ creative shop Donut. “We’ve seen consistent audience growth and engagement on the platform,” said Maggie Suniewick, president of NBCUniversal Digital Enterprises. “This digital content studio is an extension of our already strong partnership and an opportunity to develop new IP and franchises for a mobile-first audience.” NBCUni invested $500 million in Snap Inc.’s IPO in March.
 
When it comes to short form, there’s never been a better time to be a creator, says Christine Lubrano, SVP, original programming at IFC. “With television and content quality being at an all-time high, there is a huge demand for good content, especially in the short form where people can get high quality content fast and on the go. As a result, the bar has really gone up for writers, directors, and talent,” says Lubrano, a juror for the Cynopsis Short Form Video Festival. “Everyone is on their A-game and ready to create smart, elevated, and funny content because while there is more opportunity than ever, there is more competition than ever. Specifically, IFC’s Comedy Crib really gives upcoming talent the chance to put their projects forward to show the world that even in the short form, the quality of their show far exceeds that of some linear shows on air now.” To submit videos or find out more about panels and networking opportunities at the Cynopsis short form event, go here.

DIGITAL DATA
 
Netflix doesn’t need Disney content as a driver for growth said the streaming service in a financial report this week, 2 months after Disney’s decision to yank its content starting in 2019. “Our future largely lies in exclusive original content that drives both excitement around Netflix and enormous viewing satisfaction for our global membership and its wide variety of tastes,” said Netflix. “Our investment in Netflix originals is over a quarter of our total P&L content budget in 2017 and will continue to grow.”
 
That said, series like Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Netflix’s House of Cards get the awards and the buzz, but they’re not necessarily what’s luring streaming subscribers. According to a survey by SurveyMonkey, 57% of respondents watch streaming video services for shows and movies that have already been released, while 43% are in it for the originals.
 
Indigenous Media and Kerry Washington’s Simpson Street are producing Five Points, an original dramatic series created and written by Adam Giaudrone (Being Mary Jane) for Facebook’s new platform for shows, Watch.

Mitú has partnered with Sony Pictures Animation to launch the mitú / Sony Pictures Animation Accelerator program, aimed at giving promising Latino animators the opportunity to learn directly from Sony Pictures Animation’s experts, mitú’s development team, and newly appointed mitú CEO Herb Scannell, formerly of Nickelodeon. “mitú’s mission is to champion Latino talent in all that we do. We’re disproportionately underrepresented in all areas of entertainment both in creative roles and as business leaders…. Animation is close to my heart given my time at Nickelodeon, and I’m proud that we are mentoring young Latino talent to bring their creativity and characters to life,” said Scannell.
