Shortform streaming service Quibi has announced a second season of Thanks a Million, the inspiring “pay it forward” series executive produced by Jennifer Lopez and produced by her Nuyorican Productions and B17 Entertainment. Watch the first trailer above.
The first season premiered on April 6, the same day Quibi launched. Lopez, Kristen Bell, Nick Jonas, Tracy Morgan, Aaron Rodgers, Yara Shahidi, Gabriel Iglesias, Anthony Davis, Kevin Hart and Karlie Kloss led individual episodes of Thanks a Million for Season 1.
In each episode, grateful public figures kickstart a chain of kindness by gifting $100,000 to an unsuspecting individual who has had a positive impact on their life. The recipient must then pay it forward by gifting half of that sum to someone else who has done the same, and the chain continues. Across ten episodes, $1,000,000 will be put in the hands of everyday people.
The series is produced by B17 Entertainment, an Industrial Media company, and Nuyorican Productions in association with Universal Alternative Television Studio. Jennifer Lopez, Elaine-Goldsmith Thomas, Benny Medina, Rhett Bachner, Brien Meagher, Dena Waxman and Catherine Hagedorn serve as Executive Producers.
Run by founder Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman, Quibi went live April 6 with a roster of comedy, drama, reality and news programs whose episodes clock in at 10 minutes or less.
