Specifics about the project remain illusive, but Spielberg apparently wants viewers to only stream the show after midnight, and that Meg Whitman came up with a concept called "Spielberg After Dark", which will "put a clock within the Quibi player to mean that viewers will only have a limited amount of time to watch the show".

The news was revealed by Quibi (short for "quick bites") founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, who discussed plans for his digital platform at the Banff World Media Festival in Canada, Variety reported.

"Steven Spielberg has a super scary story".

Katzenberg said: "He's writing it himself. Getting him to write something is fantastic". When the Quibi app launches it will display a countdown until sunset for where you are at.

According to Deadline, Katzenberg recently revealed that Spielberg will write a "creepy" series for Quibi. Katzenberg says that virtually every major media conglomerate is an investor and the upcoming service has raised $1 billion thus far. The service has already signed some big names such as Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi to produce content. Other names now associated with the services are Catherine Hardwick (Twilight), Anna Kendrick (everything adorable on the internet, Pitch Perfect), Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow), Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix) and Antoine Fuqua (Training Day).

The service will launch on April 6, 2020, in North America ahead of a global rollout.
