E! and Rotten Tomatoes to Join Quibi’s Daily Essentials Programming in April 2020

Los Angeles, CA — October 17, 2017 — Today, Quibi announced a partnership with E! and Rotten Tomatoes to create premium celebrity and entertainment programming. As part of the new agreement, two daily shows will be developed and produced in collaboration with the NBCUniversal Digital Lab for Quibi’s curated news and information programming, Daily Essentials.

E! will debut a daily celebrity news show utilizing the brand’s unique blend of information, access and voice. The show will deliver the best of celebrity and pop culture news expected from E! News, but made exclusively on Quibi.

Additionally, Rotten Tomatoes will launch ‘Fresh Daily’ on Quibi, a daily, deep dive into the latest in must-watch television, streaming and film. ‘Fresh Daily’ is designed to help fans navigate the world of endless content options, from highlighting movie trailers and new show premieres to analyzing Tomatometer scores.

Daily Essentials are a unique content offering from Quibi – in addition to its scripted “Lighthouse” and unscripted “Alternative” shows. Curated daily into minutes-long bites of news, entertainment and inspiration, Quibi’s Daily Essentials will quickly give viewers everything they need to know.

New episodes of both shows will be made available only on Quibi, Monday through Friday, when the mobile platform launches in April 2020.
