The show also stars young actress Helena Howard, who plays a high school senior who feels something about her "just isn't right" -- turns out she isn't human.

Quibi is a mash-up of "quick" and "bites," and the service is expected to launch in April 2020.

Each series on the platform is expected to be two to four hours in length with episodes cut up into 10-minute segments.
