Actress Kiernan Shipka is set to star in a brand new Quibi series! On Monday, February 10, it was announced that the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star would appear in an upcoming drama series called Swimming with Sharks on the short-form mobile video network — set to launch on April 6, 2020.
According to Deadline, the series will be a series adaptation of the 1994 film of the same name. Kiernan will play the role of Lou, a young female assistant working for a sole female studio head at a company filled with manipulators, schemers and intrigue. The 20-year-old actress and her character will “outwit them all.”
Hollywood legend Diane Kruger is set to star alongside Kiernan in the upcoming project. Together, they will give a “female twist” to the characters played by men in the original film.
As fans know, this isn’t the only major celeb who has a show coming to Quibi this year! Liam Hemsworth‘s brand new scripted series Most Dangerous Game is set to air on the streaming service, too! Demi Lovato is adding host to her already impressive resume with the upcoming series Pillow Talk with Demi Lovato.
Joe Jonas and Zac Efron also have their own shows coming to the streaming service. The Jonas Brothers singer will host a travel series called Cup of Joe, which will follow him on a journey and photography adventure throughout the cities he visited on the Happiness Begins tour. Zac’s show, called Killing Zac Efron, is set to follow the High School Musical alum as he spends 21 days in the jungle with only basic supplies and a guide partner to survive. That’s not all! Model Cara Delevingne is also set to host and produce an all-female practical joke series for the network.
As if that wasn’t enough, Nickelodeon is also rebooting their iconic game show Legends of the Hidden Temple for Quibi, too!
