Roku in Talks to Save Quibi’s Shows, Including “50 States of Fright” and “The Expecting”

Quibi may have had all the big Hollywood names, but it still managed to go down in history as one of the most brutal entertainment-related failures ever.

We can debate all day as to what caused the failed launch, but the content itself was never suffering. In fact, Quibi’s “50 States of Fright”, from producer and director Sam Raimi, was one of the best new horror series of last year.

When Quibi announced it was closing its doors, this struck a nerve with some horror fans and ignited a flame under the hot debate of physical media vs. digital. If Quibi were to shut down, what would happen to all their great content? Would it be lost forever or would someone save it?

While there was certainly a world in which we’d never see “50 States of Fright” again, there are reports this Monday morning that Roku is in talks to save Quibi’s content.

“Under the terms the companies have discussed, Roku would acquire rights to Quibi’s library,” the people familiar with the matter told the WSJ, further noting that “financial terms of the proposed deal couldn’t be learned” and that “the deal talks could still fall apart.”

Outside of the anthology series “50 States of Fright”, Quibi gave birth to The Expecting, a pregnancy thriller directed by American Psycho‘s Mary Harron, and The Hitcher-inspired Maika Monroe/Dane DeHaan-starring The Stranger, among several other genre adjacent thrillers.

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
