Twenty-eight 15-second episodes will roll out during this month, telling this month. The series will tell the story of a security driver on the run from police and the people he believes framed him over a diamond heist.
Hullabaloo Productions and Lorton Entertainment are coproducing Shield 5, with Julian Bird executive producing, and Mark Hopkins and Declan Reddington producing. Adam Dewar is writer and creator.
Instagram social media rival Snapchat made a move into original series last year with the Astronauts Wanted, Fullscreen and AT&T effort SnapperHero.
