Wondering what Quibi Originals will be available when this unique, mobile-focused streaming service launches in April 2020? In this article, we’ll look at all the Quibi originals we know about, and discuss the content that Quibi will offer. Let’s get started.
What Original Content Will Be On Quibi?
That’s a trick question. Quibi is going to consist exclusively of original content. It’s intended to have 7,000 pieces of content by the time it ends its first year of service – and all of this content will be completely unique, and exclusive to Quibi. Let’s take a look at a few of the projects that we already know are coming to Quibi when it launches in 2020. For a full (as of publication time) list of Quibi content, take a look at this article.
This comedic courtroom series will follow Chrissy Teigen as she presides over a small-claims court, Judge Judy style. Teigen’s mother will make an appearance as the bailiff keeping order in the court.
Spielberg’s After Dark
Steven Spielberg is reportedly creating a “spooky” 10-12 part series that will exclusively be available on Quibi. Hopefully it launches around Halloween!
The beloved pranks of mid-2000s series Punk’d will be returning to Quibi. No word yet on whether or not Ashton Kutcher is returning as the host, but we doubt it.
This classic MTV dating game show originally ran from 1995-1999 and was hosted by Chris Hardwick and Melissa McCarthy, and it’s slated for a return on Quibi.

Darren Criss (known for his role in Glee as Blaine Anderson) will executive produce, star in, and write songs for this musical comedy series, which will follow a two-person songwriting team named Pierce and Sara.
Thanks A Million
This show will follow Jennifer Lopez and 9 other people who will give $100,000 to an “influential person from their life.” This person gives $50,000 to someone else, they give $25,000 to someone else… and so on. You can probably expect heartwarming stories, giant checks – and plenty of excited jumping up and down from lucky recipients.
Frat Boy Genius
This series follows Evan Spiegel, the founder of Snapchat, and is expected to be a quite unflattering representation of the founding of his company. Expect The Social Network, but in a bite-sized, mobile-friendly format.
50 States Of Fear
Sam Raimi directs this series, which will include a number of short horror films inspired by the local myths and legends of each state in the United States. Here’s hoping there’s a mention of the Ohio Grassman.
Tyra Banks stars in this series (which she’s also executive producing) which is intended to “…expand and redefine the definition of beauty” by looking at and challenging beauty standards from various worldwide cultures.
Written by Thomas Lennon (of The State and Reno 911 fame) this series will follow a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who – after failing at his startup – moves to the Wine Country of California and tries to take over a struggling vineyard.
