Time Warner and Snapchat are striking a $100-million deal to develop original programming. The duo is creating brand new, 3- to 5-minute Snapchat shows, including documentaries, comedies, scripted shows and even daily news stories. This new deal will bring increased ad spending to allow three new shows per day.

Amazon is testing out a "try before you buy" wardrobe service for Prime members. Yep, as if taking over Whole Foods wasn’t enough, Amazon is now planning to take over retail. Prime Wardrobe is in beta, but once it is launched you will be able to order three to 15 items and try them on in the comfort of your home. You can return items that are not super flattering within seven days with no charge to your credit card.

Healthy meal delivery startup Freshly has raised $77 million in a Series C round led by Nestle. Freshly delivers healthy, non-frozen dinners that you pop in the microwave and are ready to eat in 3 minutes. The new funding will enable Freshly to expand their delivery service. Freshly plans to ship over eight million meals this year while keeping its meals just how they are.
