Rotten Tomatoes Launches Fresh Daily on Quibi for All Your Binge-Watching Needs

Running through your watchlist? Our new daily show launches Monday and will cut through the clutter to give you the best TV, streaming, and movies to watch right now.

New Rotten Tomatoes recommendation show Fresh Daily arrives this April with one mission: to keep your streaming queue brimming with the best and buzziest movies and shows out there.

And only the best.

Fresh Daily, which launches on mobile-only streaming service Quibi on April 6, offers a daily, highly curated breakdown of the hottest films and TV available to watch right now. Leaning into the “quick-bite” Quibi format (nothing runs over 10-minutes on the new service), the show cuts through the clutter to focus on only the best new offerings available and – using the Tomatometer, Audience Score, and lively debate and discussion between our hosts – whether it’s worth your time. All in five or six minutes.

The new series is hosted by Aussie entertainment reporter, Geek Bomb founder, and Star Wars fanatic Maude Garrett, and Andre Meadows, whom fans will know from YouTube channel Black Nerd Comedy, his acting and voice work, and his recent passionate advocacy for Cats. (Yes, that Cats.) Every weekday, they will run through the best of what’s available that day, dive deep into a buzzy movie or show, and leave us with their own personal Fresh Picks for what to watch if we’re still craving more.

“Bingeing and streaming is at an all-time high, especially given the current situation, and new movies are releasing early at home,” Meadows says. “But I bet there are people out there, like myself, who can get overwhelmed by the huge number of choices. We’ll be there every day to tell you about the latest movies and TV shows to check out (or avoid) on streaming and VOD, plus look back at some classics. We scrub through the buffet of binge to bring the best to you.”

For Garrett, the show is a perfect match for a mobile-only service: “I watch informative video content mostly on my phone these days (usually while watching something else on TV). I like to get my daily news and info quickly, as part of my morning routine, so I think Quibi’s quick-bite formula is pretty on point with the times.”

Fresh Daily arrives as part of Quibi’s suite of Daily Essentials, which features news and lifestyle programming from some of the most trusted brands and names in media to keep you informed, healthy, and entertained every day. Every day, the BBC keeps you up on global news, Rachel Hollis inspires you, E! News delivers trending pop culture and brings celebrity musings into focus, and Rotten Tomatoes cuts through the endless movie, TV, and streaming options.



Quibi will also offer Movies in Chapters from some of the biggest names in entertainment (among them Fifty States of Fright from Sam Raimi) and a collection of unscripted series and documentaries, including Chrissy‘s Court starring Chrissy Teigen. Quibi aims to launch 175 shows in its first year.

When Fresh Daily debuts, it will look very different than originally envisioned – at least for the next little while. The show, a co-production between Rotten Tomatoes and the NBCU Digital Lab, was set to shoot at Universal on a newly-built, fan-inspired set, but with COVID-19 impacting film and TV production across the world, the team pivoted to working remotely and shooting Maude and Andre at home. They’ll be on their couches bingeing through the crisis, just like the rest of us.

The duo, who regularly produce their own video content for about 1.5 million fans across their YouTube and social channels, are taking the work-from-home challenge in stride.

“Luckily, Andre and I are both content creators so the notion of setting up, filming, and uploading content from home is something we regularly do for our respective channels,” Garrett says. “We had the Fresh Daily space set up in a couple of days, and we’re one-person teaming up the whole production!”

“We’ve been working hard at Rotten Tomatoes during this time when so many people are stuck home to help them find great things to watch to keep them and their families entertained,” Rotten Tomatoes Editor-in-Chief Joel Meares says. “Fresh Daily arrives at just the right time to be an extension of these efforts. You can tune in every day for just a few minutes and quickly learn if a show everyone’s talking about is right for you, discover a few hidden gems, and be entertained in the process.”

Fresh Daily premieres April 6. New episodes drop weekdays at 6.30am ET / 3.30am PT. Quibi is offering a 90-day free trial to those who sign up between now and April 20
