Quibi is an upcoming American short-form mobile video platform headquartered in Los Angeles, California, founded in 2018 by Jeffrey Katzenberg. The service is set to launch on April 6, 2020
The company plans to spend $1.1 billion on commissioning original content in its first year, totaling 8,500 short-form episodes and including over 175 shows. Quibi's original programming includes; Chrissy's Court, a Judge Judy-style reality show starring Chrissy Teigen. Spielberg's After Dark, a horror series written and created by Steven Spielberg, unique in that the series can only be viewed at night. Kill the Efrons, a survival reality starring Zac Efron and his brother, where the pair will be sent to remote parts of the world. Frat Boy Genius, a drama about Snapchat and its founder, Evan Spiegel. Fierce Queens, a documentary series commissioned by the BBC Natural History Unit, shows natural history from a female perspective.
Unlike other streaming video platforms such as Netflix, Prime Video and Hulu, Quibi's content is made specifically to be only streamed on mobile devices and can be viewed in either horizontal or vertical video, with the user able to shift to one or the other within the same video. Instead of typical half-hour TV episodes or two-hour films, content on Quibi will be delivered in episode chapters of 10 minutes or less.
