Mid-April I was lucky enough to be invited to interview Meg Whitman, the CEO of Quibi.
Quibi is new entertainment art form. A short form mobile video company. Content is intended for viewing on smart phones.
Nothing longer than 10 minutes. News, series, films, documentaries. You name it.
Quibi stands for Quick Bites. It also stands for “ambitious”
Meg’s partner and our guest is Jeffrey Katzenberg,
Former Disney Chair (Little Mermaid – Lion King)
led Disney animation (Beauty and The Beast -Roger Rabbit)
and DreamWorks (Shrek)
It’s fair to say, this is a tough sell..they’re already planning on expanding to TV capability.
Lots of competition. Many choices. As Jeffrey says in our interview… “this isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon. Check back in a year”
For your information and convenience, we’ve put both interviews together here.
Here’s Meg Whitman and Jeffrey Katzenberg. The Team behind Quibi
