Cara Delevingne to host practical joke series for Quibi
Staff Reporter | On 09, Nov 2019
Quibi has announced that Cara Delevingne will executive produce and host a new series for the short-form streaming platform to be produced by ITV America’s Sirens Media.
In each episode of the show, Cara and a band of female accomplices will wreak havoc, executing a new stunt or practical joke – ranging from the ridiculous to the extreme – often putting themselves in unwieldy and unpredictable situations in the process.
Since her film debut in Joe Wright’s Anna Karenina in 2012, Delevingne has continued to make her mark on the big screen. She’s since starred in Luc Besson’s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, DC Comics’ Suicide Squad, Chris Foggin’s Kids in Love, Joe Wright’s Pan, Jake Schrier’s Paper Towns based on the book by John Green, Michael Winterbottom’s The Face of an Angel, and Matthew Cullen’s London Fields.
This year, Delevingne made her small screen debut in Amazon’s fantasy drama Carnival Row. The eight-episode series, which has since been picked up for a second season, features Delevingne opposite Orlando Bloom.
“I am so excited to be partnering with such a revolutionary streaming service like Quibi and cannot wait to unleash some necessary mischief,” says Cara Delevingne. “As someone who watches so much content on my phone, this feels like such a perfect partnership”
The series is produced for Quibi by Sirens Media, an ITV America company, with Jessica Sebastian serving as executive producer.
“Cara’s an icon in so many ways, and it’s a privilege to partner with her to develop something that authentically encapsulates her unique energy and sensibility,” adds Sirens Media President Jessica Sebastian. “As far as I know, a series in this space with this level of female guidance and representation, both in front of and behind the camera, is unprecedented, and we’re ecstatic to bring this new take on the genre to the ideal platform in Quibi.”
