a welcome distraction
April 6, 2020

Quibi, an ambitious new streaming service with episodes that are no more than 10 minutes long, launched Monday for people with short attention spans and mobile phones.

On it, you can watch unscripted series like Nicole Richie's Nikki Fre$h, which the Los Angeles Times describes as "if Goop and Snoop had a love child," documentaries like Fierce Queens, a nature series narrated by Reese Witherspoon, and dramas like Survive, starring Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner, as well as a remake of Most Dangerous Game, starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz. Other standouts include Chrissy's Court, which Polygon calls "Judge Judy, but with … Chrissy Tiegen," a reboot of Punk'd with Chance the Rapper, and the home renovation show Murder House Flip, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Quibi will run you $4.99 a month with ads, or $7.99 a month for the ad-free version; your first 90 days are free. Jeva Lange
