Check out the details below!
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a new slate of Snapchat original series is expected to launch this fall, with two projects focused on the aspects of mental health.
“We’ve been seeing some really exciting new behaviors emerge,” Snapchat head of original content Sean Mills says.
“A lot of them are around people coming to the page with greater intention to watch these shows and binge-watching and building greater loyalty to franchises that we’ve been able to build.”
One forthcoming series, a scripted comedy titled Everything’s Fine, will “look at a college student dealing with bipolar disorder and trying to make it in the music industry.”
Pete Wentz will serve as both producer and musical supervisor for the series, bringing original music to the show.
“Mental health is something we think a lot about at the company,” Mills says. “We believe in telling great compelling stories with that in mind in different ways. It’s an issue that our audience cares a lot about.”
All Snap Original series will appear on the app’s Discover Tab. Users will be able to catch Everything’s Fine this fall.
As for Fall Out Boy,” they’ve been busy. They just unveiled a new song as a part of the gigantic Hella Mega announcement with Green Day and Weezer.
The three bands announced a massive stadium tour (after teasing it) for the summer of 2020. They all three also announced new albums and dropped new songs.
Fall Out Boy dropped “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” featuring Wyclef Jean, their second new track this year after Lil Peep and iLoveMakonnen collab “I’ve Been Waiting.” The new track will appear on their upcoming Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two out Nov. 15 via Island. FOB previously released Volume One in Nov. 2009. Preorders are available here.
Following the tour announcement, the three bands performed a pop up show in Los Angeles to celebrate. However, before the show, Wentz parked the truck outside Whisky A Go Go on Tuesday Night to serve fans ice cream.
Also, to fit with the theme, the band dropped the “Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” video that’s full of the whole band eating ice cream. It’s a bit trippy, but it’ll definitely make you want to go out for a cone.
