Mobile-first streamer Quibi is prepping a new travel docuseries with pop star and Jonas Brother Joe Jonas in preparation for its April 6 launch.

Inspired by Joe Jonas’s (pictured) eponymous Instagram account, Cup of Joe will follow Jonas on his “Happiness Begins” tour as he tries to experience each city he visits like it’s home, getting local guides to show him around. The show will combine Jonas’s love for travel, photography and adventure.

The eight-part travel series is produced by Philymack and Fulwell 73 Productions, with Jonas, Phil McIntyre, and John Taylor executive producing for Philymack, and Ben Winston for Fulwell 73.

“You often think you know about a certain place or a person until you take some time to dig deeper,” said Jonas in a statement.

“I’m fortunate to get to travel around the world through my profession and you often see me on the other side of the lens but Cup of Joe is giving me the opportunity to dig a little deeper and point the lens at some of the world’s most interesting people… and some more of the weird, fun things I’m into.”

In other Quibi news, the upcoming mobile streamer has greenlit a new dance competition series with a twist.

Floored is a comedic dance competition series hosted by American actress, TV host, comedian and YouTuber Liza Koshy.

The series mixes pre-rehearsed dance routines and obstacles, as contestants dance on a a moving dance floor that lifts, tilts, drops, shakes and spins in time to the music. On top of all that, dancers have to keep their cool and dodge obstacles thrown into the mix.

Floored is produced by Mission Control Media, with Michael Agbabian, Dwight D. Smith, Heath Luman, Mary Celenza and Liza Koshy serving as executive producers.

“As someone who hosts dance parties of one in their living room, I am more than ready to host this one. I’m so excited to celebrate and scream for the fearless, the focused and the flexible as they step up to the plate… or floor,” said Koshy in a statement.

“It’s time to turn the dance genre on its head,” added EP Agbabian. “We can’t wait to add a comedic twist to the world of dance while still celebrating the skill and athleticism of truly talented dancers.”
