As Snapchat becomes an increasingly popular medium, more brands race to get their content in front of the millions of viewers. Disney is looking to get in early with Watch Party: The Bachelor, a recap show for The Bachelor starting on January 3 with more shows rolling out in 2017. This move benefits Disney, who would control all the ad sales on these new programs rather than having to split it with third-party ad networks. Disney-ABC Television executive John Frelinghuysen said in a statement that this an extension of previous Snapchat experiments:

“Earlier this year, we worked closely with Snap on a very successful The Oscars Live Story and we look forward to building on that relationship and providing Snapchat’s mobile-centric users with a unique, immersive experience around our shows and brands.”
