Quibi premieres on April 6th. Five days from now. If you’re thinking you’re not going to start another streaming service because you don’t want to pay for it, I should let you know that the free trial is 90 days. That should take you to the end of our quarantine. If it does not, we will have bigger problems than having to pay a monthly charge to keep the Quibi needle in our arm.
There are a ton of series coming. There are too many to keep up with, but you can bet that at least one or two will catch fire during our quarantines. One might be the resurrection of Punk’d, a silly MTV show hosted by Ashton Kutcher that helped to launch the career of, among others, Dax Shepard and BJ Novak.
On Quibi, the episodes will be limited to 10-15 minutes (perfect for “Punk’d”), and they will be hosted by Chance the Rapper. Here’s a trailer.
Here’s who will be Punk’d this season.
Lil Nas X
Megan Thee Stallion
Ty Dolla $ign
Here’s the old person’s guide to a few of those names:
Lil Nas X: Old-Town Road guy
Adam Devine: Pitch Perfect and Modern Familyguy
Migos: The guy Aziz Ansari makes fun of in his last stand-up special
French Montana — He’s behind this song
Sabrina Carpenter — Maya in Girl Meets World
Megan Thee Stallion — Super famous with the kids, you probably know a couple of her songs via cultural osmosis
Addison Rae — Tik Tok star
Ty Dolla $ign — Grammy-nominated hip-hop star
Miles Brown and Marsai Martin — The twins on Black-ish
Liza Koshy — Social media star (Vine/YouTube)
