It’s official, two of the biggest Hollywood heartthrobs are getting their own shows! Quibi — the digital, short-form mobile video network launching in April, 2020 — just announced that both Joe Jonas and Zac Efron will get their own respective series’ on the platform.
In a statement released on Wednesday, November 20, it was revealed that the High School Musical alum is set to spend 21 days in the jungle on remote island for the series. Titled, Killing Zac Efron, the 32-year-old will be totally off the grid with only basic supplies and a guide partner to survive. Zac will also be listed as an executive producer.
“I tend to thrive under extreme circumstances and seek out opportunities that challenge me on every level,” he said in the statement. “I am excited to explore any uncharted territory and discover what unexpected adventure awaits!”
That’s not all! On Thursday, November 21, Deadline reported that one-third of boyband the Jonas Brothers, would be getting his own travel show on the platform. Titled, Cup Of Joe, the eight-part series is set to follow the 30-year-old on a journey of photography and adventure. According to Quibi, the show will feature many cities the JoBros have stopped at during their current tour.
“Before he hits the stage on his sold-out Happiness Begins tour, Joe will experience each city like a true native – as a local guides him through each destination,” they said in a statement.
Joe even dished on his excitement about the series and revealed that he’s excited to dig a little deeper into the places he visits and people he meets along the way.
“You often think you know about a certain place or a person until you take some time to dig deeper,” he said. “I’m fortunate to get to travel around the world through my profession and you often see me on the other side of the lens but Cup of Joe is giving me the opportunity to dig a little deeper and point the lens at some of the world’s most interesting people… and some more of the weird, fun things I’m into.”
