The Fugitive reboot teaser reveals first look at new Quibi series
Quibi has released the first teaser for their upcoming series adaptation of The Fugitive, a reboot of Roy Huggins’ 1960s series and Andrew Davis’s 1993 action thriller film of the same name. Set to debut this April, the video offers us our first look at Kiefer Sutherland and Boyd Holbrook as they portray the lead roles of Detective Clay Bryce and Mike Ferro, respectively. Check out the video in the player below!
In The Fugitive reboot, when a bomb rips through the Los Angeles subway train he’s riding on, blue-collar Mike Ferro just wants to make sure his wife, Allison, and 10-year-old daughter, Pearl, are safe. But the faulty evidence on the ground and “tweet-now, confirm-later” journalism paint a nightmarish picture: it looks to all the world that Mike was responsible for the heinous act. Wrongfully — and very publicly — accused, Mike must prove his innocence by uncovering the real perpetrator, before the legendary cop heading the investigation can apprehend him.
The series is created by Nick Santora with Stephen Hopkins serving as the director and executive producer. Basil Iwanyk, Tom Lassally and Albert Torres are also set as executive producers.
The 1993 The Fugitive film which starred Harrison Ford was based on Roy Huggins’ 1960s TV series of the same name. In the movie, Ford’s Dr. Kimble, unjustly accused of murdering his wife, must find the real killer while being the target of a nationwide manhunt led by a seasoned U.S. Marshal played by Tommy Lee Jones.
Quibi, which is short for “Quick Bites” is scheduled to have its launch on April 6, 2020, with already more than a billion dollars raised from its investors. The streaming service, founded by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, is set to feature series that run two to four hours in length and are broken down into parts that are no longer than 10 minutes in length.
