Multimedia messaging app Snapchat has commissioned four new unscripted series for its vertical video content platform Snap.

The shows have been ordered for Snap Originals, the company’s premium, mobile brand created exclusively for Snapchat’s audience.

They will all be available globally on Snapchat’s Discover page, beginning in May.

An untitled, daily BuzzFeed show will offer celebrity, entertainment and “OMG moments” trending online, produced by BuzzFeed and set to premiere in the spring.

Meanwhile, While Black, produced by Indigo Development and Entertainment Arts and Main Event Media, will see author, filmmaker, recording artist and educator MK Asante exploring racially charged social issues through candid conversations, launching in the summer.

Elsewhere, Compton Dreams, from October Films, follows three up-and-coming artists from Compton working to become the next big name in hip-hop, also premiering in the summer.

Finally, Stranded with Sam and Colby, from Bunim/Murray Productions, follows a pair of influencers filming from a haunted location with spooky results, premiering in the fall.
