There's a whole new scene coming to the streaming world by the name of Quibi. This new platform is designed for mobile users and will offer brief clips, with episodes running 10 minutes or less.
One major star just announced to be making an appearance on the platform is none other than Nathalie Emmanuel. The 30-year-old actress memorably appeared in Game of Thrones as Missandei, the interpreter and close friend to Daenerys Targaryen.
Emmanuel's new casting is in Kevin Hart's series, Die Hart, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. The plot line for the show is that the comedian wants to become an action star and must enroll in a school run by a very eccentric coach, played by John Travolta. Emmanuel will play a rival classmate of Hart's, who won't let him off easy.
According to Android Police, Quibi has made deals with Jennifer Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, and Steven Spielberg, among others, in an effort to bring celebrity appeal to the new platform. It's due to become available on April 6.
Like the other shows on the service, Die Hart will offer episodes under 10 minutes, so Hart and Emmanuel will have a fun challenge of telling the episode's story in such a brief amount of time. What a big change from the epic-saga of Game of Thrones!
