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.
