The pact between SpinMedia and GroupM  allows both companies to collaborate at the earliest stages of production to create content and provide what they call “early stage investment opportunities” for advertisers.  Under the terms of the deal, GroupM Entertainment and SpinMedia will share executive producer credit and ownership of the series, including syndication rights.
