Disney is going to start producing shows for Snapchat. According to a report from Reuters, Disney-ABC Television Group (the company’s US TV arm) will create several new series that will exist as Snapchat Stories. The first show to launch will be a recap of ABC’s The Bachelor called Watch Party: The Bachelor on January 3rd.

Details on the Bachelor recap are scarce. Deadline reports that the series will be 10 episodes long, with “celebrities, comedians, super fans and infamous Bachelors and Bachelorettes getting together each week to watch each episode.”

Both scripted and non-scripted shows will be made for Snapchat in the coming year. As Reuters notes, Disney and Snapchat joined forces earlier this year to make a Live Story of the Academy Awards.

Snapchat’s deal with Disney differs from its partnerships with other companies in that Disney will control all the ads that appear in its shows, Reuters reports.
