What is Quibi? Is it the final frontier in the streaming wars? Is it vaporware that’s managed to secure nearly $2 billion in investment funding before it’s even launched? Is it going to be the next big thing people spend time watching while in the bathroom?
No one really knows. Founder Jeffrey Katzenberg sees it as the next step in mobile entertainment. Quibi has teamed up with an impressive number of celebrities to make some high quality movies and shows for launch. But it’s also created some truly bonkers series that make you go “what the—” while reading the tagline.
(Disclosure: Vox Media, which owns The Verge, has a deal with Quibi to produce a Polygon Daily Essential, and there have been early talks about a Verge show.)
