We’re just a few days away from the launch of Quibi, the new mobile-only streaming platform. One of the service’s “movies in chapters” that will be available on day one is called When The Streetlights Go On, a murder mystery set in a small town in 1995. Chosen Jacobs (It, Castle Rock) plays a 15-year-old who discovers a pair of murder victims in the woods, and the ramifications of the crime quickly begin to ripple through his community.
Oddly enough, a different version of this show played at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago. Learn more about that and check out the trailer for the new Quibi version below. Read More »

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And Betty Broderick may be one of the most famous real-life woman scorned.
