Kiefer Sutherland is on a frantic hunt for a suspected bomber in Quibi’s first teaser for its reboot of “The Fugitive.”
The series, which also stars Boyd Holbrook, will premiere on Quibi, the short-form streaming service from Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman that launched in April.
Watch the video above.
Produced by Thunder Road Films with 3 Arts Entertainment and developed with Riverstone Pictures, the short-form series follows Mike Ferro (Holbrook), a blue-collar worker who must prove his innocence after being wrongly accused of blowing up a Los Angeles subway train. Sutherland plays Det. Clay Bryce, the cop who is trying to track him down.
“The Fugitive” was both a 1960s TV series, and more famously, a 1993 film that starred Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones. In that film, Ford was the man on the run, Richard Kimble, with Jones playing U.S. Marshall Deputy Samuel Gerard. The ’60s TV series starred David Janssen and Barry Morse as Kimble and Gerard, respectively.
The Quibi series is from “Scorpion” creator Nick Santora, who is also heading up the “Jack Reacher” series for Amazon.
Quibi is set to launch on April 6. It’ll cost $4.99 per month for ad-supported streaming, and $7.99 for ad-free service. Katzenberg and Whitman gave the world its first look at Quibi earlier this month at CES 2020 in Las Vegas and shared it’ll have 175 new shows in its first year.
