“While it’s only been a few months since the launch of Roku Originals, the response has been overwhelming,” Brian Tannenbaum, head of alternative programming at Roku, said in a release Monday. “We’re excited to keep the drumbeat of premium series, featuring Hollywood’s top talent, available only on the Roku Channel with this next slate of original programming.” 

Quibi didn’t catch on with viewers and fizzled during the coronavirus pandemic lockdowns. The Roku Channel gave Quibi’s content a second chance by making it free, bingeable and presented to a wider audience.
