This Week in TV News: Tinder’s Streaming Series and a Cheez-It and Pizza Hut Collab

This week we’re talking about a new choose-your-own-adventure video series premiering on Tinder, a collaboration between Pizza Hut and Cheez-It, and a proposal for new consumer privacy standards from the IAB Tech Lab. 

Tinder gets into original content. The dating app is releasing six episodes of a choose-your-own-adventure series next month. App users will be able to swipe left or right to advance the story, which takes place during an apocalypse. The director, Karena Evans, is behind hits like Drake’s “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What” music videos. (Variety)

Pizza Hut and Cheez-It release an iconic, cheesy collaboration. Who knew the pizza restaurant chain and the snack cracker would be a match made in snacker heaven? “The Stuffed Cheez-It Pizza,” available for a limited time and priced at $6.49, is basically a pizza pocket with a layer of Cheez-Its, shaped like a large Cheez-It. (Food and Wine)

IAB Tech Lab proposes new consumer privacy standards. “ Proposal for Enhanced Accountability,” the IAB Tech Lab’s new set of technical solutions and standards, aim at address concerns around privacy, data sharing, and security while “retaining the value of open standards, is to work towards enhanced accountability to consumer privacy across our industry.” Read more about the proposal on the IAB Tech Lab’s blog.

“Friends” turns 25. More than two decades later, the show (which leaves Netflix next year) is still popular and drawing new audiences to its story of a few twenty-somethings living in New York. The Hollywood Reporter ranked the show’s top 25 episodes in honor of its 25th birthday.
