Mitú to create Latino content for MLB, Snap Inc. secrecy culture may clash with the requirements of a public company, and Seinfeld’s “Comedian’s in Cars” leaving Crackle for Netflix.
Latino media company mitú has signed a content deal with Major League Baseball to promote baseball to young Latino audiences, reports the Business Journal. MLB and mitú plan to distribute an array of exclusive content that will appear across several mitú and MLB channels.
Snap Inc. is famously secretive about its business operations, even among its own employees, but that may be problematic as the company faces public and legal scrutiny during and after an initial public offering of its stock, reports Bloomberg. During an IPO, Snap’s executives will have to travel the country and the world for a roadshow to explain their strategy and provide their financials.
Jerry Seinfeld’s online show “Comedian’s in Cars Getting Coffee” is leaving Sony Entertainment’s streaming website, Crackle, for Netflix, reports Variety. The move is part of a multi-faceted production deal Seinfeld inked with Netflix that will also include two new stand-up specials filmed exclusively for the streaming service.
