The story of the beginning of Snapchat and its co-founder Evan Spiegel will soon make its way as a web series called “Frat Boy Genius” on an upcoming streaming service named “Quibi” (quick bites).

“We want to tell the story of Evan and of the creation of Snapchat as compellingly and interestingly as The Social Network did for Facebook,” CNET quoted Katzenberg as saying.
