"Flipped": With Kaitlin Olson & Will Forte's New Quibi Series, Home Design Could Come with a Body Count [TRAILER]
Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman's new mobile short-form streaming service Quibi was looking to make a big impact at this year's Sundance Film Festival, so they made sure they didn't show up empty-handed. On Friday, the pair took the stage to let the media and attendees know more about the service – and brought along some powerful names to show off just some of programming still to come. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson was on hand to promote her new series Flipped (with Will Forte) as well as what it's like working with Quibi.
Now we're getting a look at what the series has to offer for ourselves with the following official trailer for Quibi's upcoming comedy series, Flipped:
Developed by Steve Mallory and Damon Jones, "Flipped" follows chronically underemployed couple Cricket (Kaitlin Olson) and Jann Melfi (Will Forte) who are self-proclaimed home renovation "experts" who are more than confident they are television's next great home design celebrity duo. "Flipped" follows the clueless pair as their dreams of basic cable fame and glory are derailed when they get themselves kidnapped by members of a drug cartel (Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria, and Arturo Castro) and are forced to renovate their sprawling homes.
Created and written by Steve Mallory and Damon Jones and directed by Ryan Case, Quibi's Flipped also stars Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives), Arturo Castro (Alternatino), and Andy Garcia (Mama Mia: Here We Go Again). Mallory, Jones, and Case executive produce alongside Joe Farrell, Jim Ziegler, and Steve Burgess. Adrien Finkel and Whitney Hodack produce, with Funny or Die as the producing studio.
Quibi is set to have over 175 original shows and 8,500 "quick bites" of content, ranging from comedies and dramas to news and reality series – all set in a three-tier structure: features, episodic, and "Daily Essentials." Quibi looks to deliver content that spans over several, 7-10 minute segments – with 35 of the upcoming shows being movies broken up into chapters.
