Story of Snapchat Soon to Make its Way as ‘Web Series’ Called “Frat Boy Genious”

The founders plan to introduce a new series on interesting topics every other Monday

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).

Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman revealed this at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference in Austin, Texas, on Saturday.

“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.
