The deal remains to be in course of, and never a lot is thought about it at this level. Phrase of the deal comes from somebody near the negotiations that might not say extra publicly.
Nevertheless, there are points complicating a attainable deal, and that complication is how Quibi signed its offers with creators for its programming. The next was revealed:
“Mr. Katzenberg and Ms. Whitman didn’t pursue possession of the platform’s content material, as an alternative shopping for unique rights from creators to stream their reveals for seven years.
