What Happens When Conan O’Brien and Dave Franco Join Tinder?

Team Coco is at it again.

If you were in Los Angeles browsing social dating app Tinder in the past few weeks, you may have come across Chip Whitley and Djengus Roundstone, the pseudonyms Conan O’Brien and Dave Franco, respectively, came up for themselves for their Tinder profiles. The 12-minute segment, which aired last night on ‘Conan,’ is worth watching and is great press for Tinder. You may not think that Tinder would have many social TV implications, but Mindy Kaling recently made good use of it recently for her ‘The Mindy Project’ character, Mindy Lahiri, when the character joined the platform in January.

‘CNN Digital Studios’ Creating Short-Form Video Aimed at Mobile

cnn logo_304x200Ahead of CNN’s advertising upfront tomorrow, which Lost Remote will be at, comes news of the network’s original online video expansion, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The Turner network will announce “CNN Digital Studios” at tomorrow’s event; a web-only video expansion with a mix of short 15-second videos aimed at social sharing and longer original webisodes.

“15 Second Morning” is one of the expected forms of content, along with “Brutally Honest with Kelly Wallace,” and the health-focused “Live to 100 w Sanjay Gupta.” Another web series will be “Crossfire Reloaded” (watch after the jump), featuring a shorter version of the political debate show.

“We are targeting the mobile and social generation,” said Chris Berend, CNN’s vice president for Video Content Development. “The shows we are doing, you’ll see the CNN DNA, but they’ll be geared towards new generation of CNN users.”

The new effort will also look outside of CNN’s talent roster for content; “Related with Dave Franco” will focus on celebrity siblings, hosted by actor James Franco‘s brother, and co-production with Funny or Die.
