    That's where Brat hopes to make its mark. The LA-based production studio and media company makes scripted dramas such as Chicken Girls on platforms like YouTube targeting a purely teen audience. And unlike Netflix, Brat is built from the ground up to keep production costs...

( Last year's Prime Day was 30 hours, for example.)
    Still, it's a remarkable showing on...
