This spring saw the surprise launch of Quibi in the UK. Short for “Quick Bites”, the streaming platform delivers programmes and films in short chunks of 5 to 10 minutes each, designed to be watched on mobile phones on the go. A month after its launch, though, the mobile-only platform announced plans to backtrack on its signature proposition and introduce the ability to cast content to TVs – a sign of how challenging an environment it is for a new streaming service to make any headway in a crowded landscape.

This month sees some of Quibi’s biggest hitters to date attempting to catch audience’s attention, as Kiefer Sutherland stars in a remake of The Fugitive and two SNL veterans produce new comedy mystery Mapleworth Murders.

Here’s what’s coming soon to Quibi in August – or see what was added to Quibi last month.

The Fugitive – 3rd August

Kiefer Sutherland (24) and Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) star in this edge-of-your-seat crime thriller from the creator of Most Dangerous Game and co-executive producer of Prison Break, in which an innocent man on the run, desperate to clear his name, is chased through Los Angeles by the cop who will not rest until he is captured. Episodes 1 to 3 arrive all at once, with new episodes arriving on weekdays. (14 episodes in total)

Sex Next Door – 3rd August

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley gets up close and personal with today’s biggest beauty icons including Kylie Jenner, Huda Kattan and more to hear their stories, inspirations, and learn what it takes to build a beauty empire. (6 episodes total)

Mapleworth Murders – 10th August

From the creative minds behind SNL and Late Night with Seth Meyers comes Mapleworth Murders, a hilarious whodunnit created by, written by and starring Paula Pell and John Lutz, and featuring a “who’s who” of guest suspects and victims. It all leads to a bigger question: why the hell are there so many murderers in one town? Episodes 1 to 3 arrive all at once, with new episodes arriving on weekdays. (12 episodes in total)

Nice One! – 24th August

A game show of jovial joking. Ron Funches hosts comedians as they compete to compliment some pretty bad subjects. If they don’t have something nice to say, they can GTFO. (8 episodes total)

This Joka with Will Smith – 31st August
