Adult Swim parent company Turner and Snap, Inc. are teaming up again to bring you a slew of exciting new programming, starting in 2017. In a wide-ranging new partnership just announced, Turner will work with Snap to develop original shows from its buzzworthy series and brands such as TBS, Adult Swim, truTV, Great Big Story and Super Deluxe.
Sports lovers have a lot to look forward to with this deal. As of January 4, check out the new Discover Channel from Bleacher Report, your go-to source for all things sports. The channel will be chock full of videos, animations and graphics covering the top sports stories each day.
The partnership will also leverage Snapchat’s immersive Live Stories feature with expanded coverage of Turner’s premium sports content, including the PGA Championship and NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship (aka March Madness). You'll get inside info directly from the court or green with exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage, videos and photos from on-site correspondents.
News addicts have reason to rejoice as well: The CNN Discover Channel will expand its offering to feature more daily content than ever before, including in-depth, global news stories hand-curated for the Snapchat community.
Finally, you may remember the devilishly delightful tie-in between Snapchat and Adult Swim back on Halloween (if not, check it out here). Expect to see similar antics in the near future from your favorite Turner brands and series.
