Reno 911 season 7 announced

Break out your short shorts, because Reno 911! is officially back from the dead. The latest in a long line of cancelled or concluded shows to be resurrected in the streaming era, Reno 911 season 7 is heading to Quibi, the yet-to-launch mobile viewing platform which aims to provide episodic short form content in approximately 10-minute chunks. And there’s good news for longtime fans of this series: creator/stars Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver, and Thomas Lennon are all attached to come back to star in and write the new episodes.

turn of the screw quibi series

Who knew The Turn of the Screw was so hot? Henry James’ 1898 horror novella is already the inspiration for two upcoming projects: the horror movie The Turning and the Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor. You might think that two would be enough, but apparently not, because there’s now a third adaptation in the works. This one comes from Quibi, the upcoming streaming service devoted to short-form content.

Marvel vs. DC Docu-Series

In all the excitement for Disney+ (and the lack of excitement for Apple TV+), we forgot about Quibi! The short-form content streaming service is still headed our way, and it continues to line up interesting concepts and talent. The latest: The Russo Brothers, famous for directing multiple Marvel movies and then doing press tours where they explain what happened in those movies, are set to produce a Marvel vs. DC docu-series for the platform.

Peter Farrelly Quibi Series

Peter Farrelly, who directed both Shallow Hall and the inexplicable Best Picture winner Green Book, is the latest name to join Quibi, the short-form streaming service. Farrelly will develop The Now, which is said to be a comedy about suicide, which I think we’d all agree isn’t the funniest of topics. Like all Quibi shows, The Now will unfold in very short episodes. While there’s a heavy dose of skepticism surrounding the upcoming streaming service, it’s already attracted big names like Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Soderbergh and many more.

You might have heard about Quibi (short for “Quick Bites”), the upcoming streaming subscription service that will only be accessible on mobile devices. Longform shows will be broken up and served to audiences in short chunks, and the service has managed to lure in some top shelf creators like Steven Spielberg, Antoine Fuqua, Sam Raimi, Steven Soderbergh, and Guillermo del Toro, just to name a few.

But now we have a better understanding of exactly how this nascent service was able to lure such high-end talent. According to a new report, Quibi will be initially licensing content from these creators, but after two years of exclusivity, the service will allow them to re-edit those stories into full features and sell the rights elsewhere, giving them the potential for a huge payoff down the line.  Read More »
