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.
