In the latest of a string of deals to fill out its bouquet before launch in April 2020, the Quibi short-form mobile video service has added E! and Rotten Tomatoes premium celebrity and entertainment programming to its Daily Essentials programming line-up.

quibi 27 aug 2019Founded by former Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg and ex HP and eBay CEO Meg Whitman, Quibi has committed to spending in its first year over $600 million on short-form content covering scripted and original entertainment, sports and news.

As part of the new agreement, two daily shows will be developed and produced in collaboration with the NBCUniversal Digital Lab for Quibi’s curated news and information programming slot, Daily Essentials. Days ago Quibi added The Weather Channel  to the slot.

E! will debut a daily celebrity news show based on the brand’s blend of information, access and voice. The show will deliver the best of celebrity and pop culture news expected from E! News, but made exclusively on Quibi. Rotten Tomatoes will launch Fresh Daily on Quibi, a daily, deep dive into the latest in must-watch television, streaming and film. The programme is designed to help fans navigate the world of endless content options, from highlighting movie trailers and new show premieres to analysing Tomatometer scores.

New episodes of both shows will be made available only on Quibi, Monday through Friday, when the mobile platform launches in April 2020.
