Flipped is written and created by Funny or Die’s Steve Mallory and Damon Jones. The series is directed by Ryan Case, who also serves as an executive producer along with Jones, Mallory, Joe Farrell, and Steve Burgess. It also produced by Adrien Finkel and Whitney Hodack.
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.
