Snapchat‘s parent company Snap is working with NBCUniversal on its first scripted series spearheaded by the Duplass Brothers. The show will debut through the digital studio they plan to create together called Donut. Snap and NBCU have partnered in the past with its launch of the unscripted The Voice series tailored for Snapchat audiences.
