Cara Delevingne: mythical high fashion muse, Young Adult novelist, dedicated activist, occasional musician, dream television celebrity , also, today, devious prankster.
Delevingne's is the latest in a series of high-profile programming announcements for the streaming service. Founded by former Disney chairmen Jeffrey Katzenberg and helmed by former Republican Presidential candidate and eBay chief Meg Whitman, Quibi will specialize in quick, bite-sized programming meant to be watched on mobile devices. Only a week, they announced that style designer Alexander Wang will host a talk show set in a toilet .
In this specific program, Delevingne will likely be combined by an all-female group of fellow technical jokers as they attempt all manner of mayhem while, based on Deadline,"placing themselves in unwieldy and unpredictable scenarios in the process."
"I am so excited to be partnering with such a revolutionary streaming agency such as Quibi and cannot wait to unleash any necessary mischief," said Delevingne in a statement. "As someone who watches so much content in my phone, this seems like such a perfect partnership."
"Cara's an icon in lots of ways, and it's a privilege to associate with her to develop something that authentically encapsulates her unique energy and sensibility," added Jessica Sebastian, President of Sirens Entertainment. "As far as I know, a string in this area with this level of female guidance and representation, both in front of and behind the camera, is unprecedented, and we are ecstatic to deliver this new spin on the genre into the perfect stage in Quibi."
(For the record, a pre-fame Chelsea Handler appeared alongside Melissa Howard from Real World: New Orleans on an all-female prank show eligible Girl Behaving Badly, however, IMDb does not include info about who was actually producing and directing that series.)
Delevingne has not quite developed as people a reputation for playing practical jokes in real life as, say, George Clooney, but the version failed to disclose at least one case of pranking members of Taylor Swift's squad during one of their singer's most infamous Fourth of July getaways.
"Kesha, she had been sleeping on the floor with the Haim sisters, all in this kind of creepy field of the house," she told James Corden during an interview. "And they had been watching murder mysteries daily, so me, Ruby Rose and Uzo [Aduba] chose to turn into a ghost team and started producing this massive plot to scare the crap from them, basically. We got torches, speakers, so we did noise effects, we were gonna do rocking seats with a bits of thread out. I mean, we went complete in."
Kesha and the Haim sisters ended up calling the authorities.
