Short-form video service Quibi is announcing its full launch lineup today — exactly once month before launch.

Its content will include “movies in chapters” (longer, scripted stories broken into chapters that are between seven and 10 minutes long), as well as unscripted shows, documentaries and daily hits of news/entertainment/inspiration.
The company, which is led by longtime Hollywood executive Jeffrey Katzenberg and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, says there will be 50 shows live at launch, including:
- “Most Dangerous Game,” a dystopian action thriller starring Liam Hemsworth and Christoph Waltz
- “Survive,” a drama starring Sophie Turner about the aftermath of a plane crash,
