Roku Hires Another Ex-Quibi Employee As It Gears Up To Launch Quibi Shows

Roku has recruited another former employee from Quibi, the now-defunct mobile streaming subscription startup that closed its doors in 2020 just six months after launching. Lisa Flores, previously marketing lead at Quibi, is now overseeing social media for The Roku Channel, the company’s streaming service that aggregates free, ad-supported and subscription content.

Burnett Puts Variety And Music Back In Her Show

Since its original run from 1967 to 1978, most viewers have only seen heavily chopped versions of The Carol Burnett Show, and many fans had no idea that singing and dancing were an essential part of a series that was actually more classic variety show than modern comedy sketch show. But now, 65 episodes drawn from the show’s 11 seasons on CBS, which brought it 25 Emmy Awards, have been revived and expanded, most to their original hour length, and can be seen streaming for the first time on services including Tubi and The Roku Channel.
