The social network giant is reportedly developing almost two dozen original shows which will premiere as early as mid-June. Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg has commented in the past how they have a goal to draw users in with more original content, and TV shows would be a prime way to generate more ad revenue.

According to sources speaking to Business Insider, Facebook will offer two tiers of programing. The premier tier would have shows similar to those on primetime TV, with longer run times and higher production values. The other format would be five to ten minute videos, more in line with what’s already common on social media, and may include daily episodes added to Facebook’s video tab.
