Forthcoming digital shortform outlet Quibi has greenlighted Q Talks, a comedy talk show hosted by comic James Veitch. Among the guests set to do episodes are Regina Hall, Lisa Kudrow, Niecy Nash, Jimmy O. Yang and Kristen Schaal.
In Q Talks. celebrity speakers give expert talks — on topics they’ve never heard before, from a script they’ve never seen before, presented to them via a rigged teleprompter. To make it to the end of their talk, they’ll have to say, and do, anything the prompter tells them.
