5 Quibi shows I’m looking forward to in April

In dark times like these, where we’re all social distancing and self-quarantining, it helps to have streaming services at our disposable.

But considering that there’s only so much we can watch on Hulu, Netflix, Disney-Plus, and the like, it’s nice to know that a new streaming service is coming to us just in time.

You could say, it’s the perfect time.

Quibi is set to launch on April 6, and it’s designed to be watched on your phone. The episodes will range from 4-10 minutes, which are designed to be quick bites.

After releasing a list of everything coming to Quibi this April, I got to scouting some of the shows that I’m most excited to watch.

Here are five Quibi shows that we’re looking forward to:

1. Most Dangerous Game

Quibi

PREMIERING: APRIL 6

What It’s About:

Desperate to take care of his pregnant wife before a terminal illness can take his life, Dodge Tynes (Liam Hemsworth) accepts an offer to participate in a deadly game where he’s the prey. This dystopian action-thriller explores the limits of how far someone would go to fight for their life
and their family. Let the games begin.

Why I’m Excited:

Liam Hemsworth. That’s it, that’s the response. Oh, and sure, everyone loves some good action — especially when Liam Hemsworth is the hero in this cat and mouse game.

2. When The Streetlights Go On

Quibi

PREMIERING: APRIL 6

What It’s About:

After the murder of a beautiful young girl rocks a suburban community, the victim’s sister and her high school peers must struggle to find a sense of normalcy while coming of age in the midst of the murder investigation.

Why I’m Excited:

Who doesn’t love a good coming-of-age story immersed in the middle of a murder investigation? Murder aside, it’s these kind of moments that allow for some great character exploration in storytelling, which makes this something intriguing, to say the least.

3. Survive

Quibi

PREMIERING: APRIL

What It’s About:

Jane (Sophie Turner) wants to end it all. Then a plane crash almost ends it for her. Now she’s crawling from the wreckage with the only other survivor (Corey Hawkins) and a new drive to stay alive.

Together they embark on a harrowing journey out of the wilderness, battling brutal conditions and personal traumas in this thrilling drama based on the critically acclaimed novel, SURVIVE, by Alex Morel.

Why I’m Excited:

It’s been far too long since Sophie Turner has been on my television. The premise is interesting — woman doesn’t want to live, almost dies, and then she realizes how much she actually wants to live. Okay, I’ll bite. Not to mention, this is already setting up one epic romance between these two strangers-turned-survivors.

4. The Stranger

Quibi

PREMIERING: APRIL 13

What It’s About:

An unassuming young rideshare driver is thrown into her worst nightmare when a mysterious Hollywood Hills passenger enters her car. Her terrifying, heart-stopping ride with the stranger unfolds over 12 hours as she navigates the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles in a chilling game of cat and mouse.

Why I’m Excited:

An interesting take on a rideshare service. Typically, it’s the driver that we have to fear. In this series, it’s the passenger. The stakes sound high — a 12-hour journey that’s sure to be terrifying as hell. Yeah, I’m definitely interested.

5. Prodigy

Quibi

PREMIERING: APRIL 6

What It’s About:

Hosted by Megan Rapinoe, each episode highlights one Prodigy’s unprecedented athletic accomplishments, while also diving deep into their origin stories to introduce the Prodigies to the world in a powerful, unique way. Each episode will inspire not only sports fans, but fans of the human experience, all while honoring the villages that helped them earn the numerous National, World and Olympic Championships they have obtained early in their young careers.

The 2020 Prodigy Class is:
● Jalen Green: #1 ranked high school basketball player in the country
● Sha’Carri Richardson: fastest woman in NCAA track and field history
● Red Gerard: youngest Winter Olympic Gold Medalist since 1928
● Regan Smith: fastest woman in swimming history
● Matthew Boling: fastest man in high school track and field history
● Tyler Adams: member of the USMNT, one of the world’s most promising soccer stars
● Korey Foreman: #1 ranked high school football player in the country
● Chantel Navarro: US Junior National Boxing Team member, 5-time National Champion

Why I’m Excited:

What’s not to love about sports and Megan Rapinoe? Focusing on some of these unprecedented athletic accomplishments by some incredible athletes is exactly what we need. Especially with sports on hiatus amid the coronavirus pandemic. I NEED SPORTS.
