It’s only been a week since the mobile-first, ShortForm streamer announced it was shuttering. Lil yachty’s dramedy, public figures, is headed to HBO Max.
The streamer’s attempts to sell off quibi to big companies like Apple and warnermedia were one of the first indications that things were about to go bottoms up at the young company.
There’s already been some confirmations of shows that wo n’t seek new homes, like the nod to HBO Max Max. The future remains uncertain, but some of Katzenberg and Whitman’s attempts to sell quibi’s content were not in vain.
Lil yachty’s series is focused on aspiring influencers living in New York. He’ll also executive produce and star in the series.
