Facebook could launch two dozen ‘TV-like’ original shows in June

[Facebook] has already given some of the ideas it was presented with the go-ahead to start filming and has reportedly signed up A-list celebs to star in some of them. Apparently, one of the programs it greenlit is a collaboration with Conde Nast, a dating show that would have people meet in VR before they meet in real life. In order to build a solid foundation for the effort’s launch, Facebook paid for these shows upfront. However, it plans to move to a revenue-sharing model by inserting mid-roll ads in the future. – Mariella Moon, Engadget http://ift.tt/2plqs8X
