Calling out all my social media lovers and crypto enthusiasts, even if you aren’t this will work. I have some fun news for you all.
Crypto has its own Snapchat series.
Yeap, you heard it!
Only recently, Snapchat launched a 5-minute series called Kappa, Delta, Crypto. The first episode just premiered and you guys, it was a fun watch. It’s based on a girl named Maddie Sullivan, a California-based sorority girl who uses coding and has amazing cryptography, hacking, and computer skills to get herself in some trouble.
So, the brain behind these series, Katherine Craft said that the idea of the show came from the need to promote women young women in STEM. The two worlds, her sorority life, and the FBI world, both of which are very drastic in contrast, have been merged together.
She isn’t a typical sorority girl or a typical computer science girl. It is really a mix of both, a modern take on computer and sorority girls. A mix that was long due and we have it in this little five-minute series.
The general plot, no spoilers here, is that Maddie wiggles her way into the sorority life by using her coding skills to get access to that elite life. She has trouble fitting in anywhere and is constantly managing both her lives while navigating her way through it.
The screenwriter Katherine had to figure out a smart way to tell a story within a few minutes as that’s all the time you get on a Snapchat series, and for her, that was really interesting. To be able to grasp our short attention spans, that too on a phone is something I would congratulate Katherine for.
Surely it was a difficult job but hey, she pulled it off really well so all the hard work has REALLY paid off.
Katherine was previously from a non-profit social background and she was a little new to TV writing. Although she was a playwright before this and did run a theatre program for a woman at a county jail in Austin, Texas. So this job did come with a challenge.
Why Snapchat though, you ask?
Well, for Katherine Snapchat and Indigo were the only two platforms that were open to this idea as they work really hard to break stereotypes around characters. Hence this idea worked really well for them.
It is a light and comedic take on social justice. Make sure you do watch and be sure to subscribe as well! Let us know what you think of it below!
