Can’t commit to watching shows in lengthy 30-minute chunks? Quibi—as in Qui(ck) Bi(tes)—is here at last. The much anticipated new streaming platform from ex-DreamWorker Jeffrey Katzenberg and former eBay and Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman is packed with mini-episodes of scripted, unscripted, and news content that run 10 minutes or less. Subscriptions range from $4.99 to $7.99 a month (after the 90-day free trial). Here are a few shows that caught our eye.


The Stranger

The Killing’s Veena Sud directs this thriller about a rideshare driver (Maika Monroe from It Follows) who picks up—and flees from—a sketchy fare (Chronicle’s Dane DeHaan). Buckle up. Premieres Monday, April 13.

Gayme Show

What was once a subversive live show—in which two bro contestants battled to be Queen of the Straights—is now a full-blown series. The game show’s creators, comedians Matt Rogers (Las Culturistas) and Dave Mizzoni (Making It), cohost.

Reno 911!

Remember this Comedy Central classic about Nevada’s not-so-finest? The full cast reunites in May for a seventh season of what writer-star Thomas Lennon calls “reboot goofin’.” Coming in May.

Punk’d

The hidden-cam show that sent celebs into panic attacks for more than a decade is back, with more elaborate setups and a new King of Pranks—Chance the Rapper (below) who replaces Ashton Kutcher.

Barkitecture

MTV Cribs + Pimp My Ride + dogs = Barkitecture, a showcase of “off the leash” dog houses. Interior design maven Delia Kenza turns dreams into reality alongside The Bachelorette’s Tyler Cameron.

Survive

Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) must brave a fresh circle of wintry hell in this drama after their flight crashes into a remote, snow-capped mountain.
