The reboot of MTV mainstay Punk'd features Grammy-winner Chance the Rapper taking over hosting/"prank ringmaster" responsibilities from Ashton Kutcher this time around. While no premiere date was revealed, the streaming service did release an official announcement teaser (see below) for the MTV Studios co-produced project.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Kaitlin Olson and Will Forte (Saturday Night Live) also have home renovation/criminal underworld mashup comedy Flipped on tap:

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.

The hunt is on once again – except with a bit of a twist, as you're about to see in the teaser for The Fugitive, starring Boyd Holbrook (Milk, Gone Girl) as innocent-man-on-the-run Mike Ferro and Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) as head fugitive hunter Detective Clay Bryce. Developed by Nick Santora (Scorpion) and directed by Stephen Hopkins (24), the series is a co-production Thunder Road Films and Warner Bros. TV.

The Fugitive centers on blue collar worker Mike Ferro (Holbrook), who just wants to make sure his wife and 10-year-old daughter are safe when a bomb rips through the Los Angeles subway train he's riding on. But the faulty evidence on the ground and "tweet-now, confirm-later" journalism paint a nightmarish picture: it looks to all the world that Mike was responsible for the heinous act.

Wrongfully—and very publicly—accused, Mike must prove his innocence by uncovering the real perpetrator, before the legendary cop, Detective Clay Bryce (Sutherland), heading the investigation can apprehend him. With the city in a state of panic and misinformation traveling at the speed of social media, Mike's life and family hang in the balance as he becomes… The Fugitive.

Quibi's The Fugitive also stars Tiya Sircar as Pitti, Daniel David Stewart as Stamell, and Andy Buckley as Principal Spitaro. Santora and Hopkins executive produce alongside Thunder Road Films' Basil Iwanyk, 3 Arts' Tom Lassally, and Albert Torres

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.
