BBC Studios invests in Quibi

Previously announced investors include Disney, Liberty Global and ITV

BBC Studios has invested in new short-form platform Quibi.

The digital service, which is due to launch in April 2020, has been created by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman.

As well as BBC Studios, Quibi counts Disney, Viacom, Liberty Global, and ITV among its investors.

BBC Studios announced it had won its first commission from Quibi just last week. The company’s Natural History Unit is making Fierce Queens (w/t), exploring phenomenal female animals.

A BBC Studios spokesman said, “We are pleased to have concluded an investment in Quibi and we both see good opportunities to work together on future projects.”
