Snapchat just launched an original series based on a darkly humorous YA novel!
As Snapchat looks for new ways to expand their social media brand, the company is getting in on the YA adaptation game!
Snap Originals, in cooperation with HarperCollins, is slowly unleashing their take on Suzy Cox’s 2012 YA novel The Dead Girls Detective Agency. The story follows Charlotte (Gia Mantegna), who wakes up in a strange place only to discover that she’s dead and stuck in purgatory. With the help of Nancy (Vanessa Marano) and Lorna (Aparna Brielle), Charlotte will have to figure out who killed her in order to move on. It’s quirky fun all around!

Given that Snapchat’s whole ethos is to keep things short and sweet, each episode is about 5 minutes long. New episodes will be released daily on the Discover page in the Snapchat app.
Epic Reads shared the news along with a few behind-the-scenes photos from the show’s filming. Take a look!
