Will Smith Quibi

Will Smith is heading to Quibi.

The soon-to-launch streaming service has secured yet another of the world’s biggest stars to headline one of its short-form shows designed to offer “quick bites” of entertainment to subscribers. Smith is on board to host and executive produce a series called This Joka, which unfortunately does not involve him explaining actor’s cinematic portrayals of the DC Comics character Joker.

The Simpsons Aspect Ratio Problem Fixed

Update 4/2/20: Today, Disney+ released a statement on Twitter saying they expect this process to be completed by the end of May 2020.
