We learned last month that Sam Raimi has boarded the upcoming “50 States of Fear,“ a series that’ll be part of Jeffrey Katzenberg’s new venture Quibi, a mobile streaming service set to launch by 2020. Today brings some more details on Quibi (short for “quick bites”), suggesting that it’s going to be a hot service with several top filmmakers contributing to it.
An article over on Variety today reveals,
“Jason Blum, Antoine Fuqua, Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi are all developing two-to-four hour length series for WndrCo’s platform, dubbed Quibi.”
Blum’s project is titled “Wolves and Villagers,“ being described as “Fatal Attraction 2.0.” Raimi’s “50 States of Fear,” we now know, will highlight the scariest folklore from each state in America, while Del Toro’s projects with Quibi are being kept secret for now.
“The service will be a two-tiered subscription model similar to Hulu. The lower-priced version, $5/month, will have select advertising, and an ad free version will cost $8/month.”
