Creature Films, the production company behind MTV’s Siesta Key and Laguna Beach, has partnered with Toronto-headquartered studio eOne for the Quibi docusoap On Beat (w/t).

This stylized unscripted series is the first of its kind for Quibi, Jeffrey Katzenberg’s short-form, mobile-first streamer that launched in April with a robust lineup of unscripted and documentary content.

On Beat (w/t) follows a group of young dancers as they balance their personal relationships and professional journeys.

Tara Long is executive producer for eOne. On behalf of Creature Films, founders Mark Ford and Kevin Lopez serve as executive producers.

In other Quibi news, the streamer has announced the non-scripted, R-rated comedy series No Pulling Out Now, starring and executive produced by comedian Michelle Buteau (pictured) and ITV America’s Sirens Media.

No Pulling Out Now will see Buteau and various celebrity and comedian friends meet with parents to address issues most find too awkward to discuss.

With Buteau, Sirens Media president Jessica Sebastian-Dayeh, Blake Webster and Rebecca Donohue serve as executive producers.

Sirens Media has also produced Quibi’s upcoming interactive dating series The Hot Drop and the platform’s Cara Delevingne-helmed prank series, in addition series such as Snapchat’s Nikita Unfiltered, Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey and A&E’s The Untold Story. The company has other projects in development with Netflix, Comedy Central, E! and Bravo.
