Quibi is putting the pedal to the metal with a new stop-motion animated series based on a viral short film.
Micro Mayhem, “a series of over-the-top shorts where the cars are the characters,” uses toy cars to tell violent, action-packed stories. Jon Favreau‘s Golem Creations is executive producing, while Seth Green‘s Stoopid Buddy Studios will co-produce alongside eOne. Check out the original viral short below. Read More »
It’s still up in the air whether Quibi will be a force to be reckoned with in the streaming wars, or just another curious experiment, but the mobile video platform certainly has a talent for releasing star-studded trailers. The latest trailer stars Dane DeHaan and Maika Monroe in a thriller series that follows the rideshare from hell. The Stranger follows Monroe’s rideshare driver as she picks up DeHaan’s titular stranger, who claims to have just committed a murder and threatens to do the same to her unless she tells him “a great story.” Watch The Stranger teaser below.

In 1994, writer/director George Huang made a splash with Swimming with Sharks, his razor-sharp satire of Hollywood about a young, naive assistant (Frank Whaley) who gets a job working for the most powerful producer in the industry. That producer is an abusive piece of trash played by Kevin Spacey, which makes the original film a tough watch in 2020, but now a streamer is looking to remake it with women in the lead roles.
Quibi, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman’s new mobile-only streaming platform, will be the new home of the Swimming with Sharks remake, which has Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, National Treasure) on board to star. Read More »
