Polygon is excited to announce that we’ll be producing (with Vox Media Studios) a daily news show for Quibi, the mobile-first premium streaming service spearheaded by Jeffrey Katzenberg (co-founder of DreamWorks and former chairman of Walt Disney Studios — i.e., the connecting tissue between The Lion King and Shrek) and Meg Whitman (former president and CEO of both HP and eBay). Quibi, which launches in April 2020, will feature scripted and unscripted series from people like Steven Spielberg and Guillermo del Toro. It will also offer a lineup of daily shows called Daily Essentials, which will consist of more news-driven programming from ESPN, NBC, Rotten Tomatoes, and, well, us.
We’ll have more to share closer to our launch. But expect each episode to highlight the most important stories of the day in gaming, comics, and entertainment, along with deeper dives into the biggest headlines — all with a veneer of Polygon’s usual weirdness.
