Roku will stream four unscripted and documentary originals this week originally destined for the collapsed short form streamer Quibi.

The series — Eye Candy, Squeaky Clean, What Happens in Hollywood and the second season of Thanks a Million (pictured) – join The Roku Channel’s lineup of 23 originals set to roll out beginning Friday (Aug. 13) in the U.S., Canada and UK.

“While it’s only been a few months since the launch of Roku Originals, the response has been overwhelming,” said Brian Tannenbaum, head of alternative programming at Roku and formerly the unscripted and alternative programming lead for Quibi, a release. “We’re excited to keep the drumbeat of premium series, featuring Hollywood’s top talent, available only on the Roku Channel with this next slate of original programming.”

Other previously announced titles streaming this month, formerly Quibi originals, include Elba vs. Block, Gone Mental with Lior, The Sauce, Singled Out, Skrrt with Offset, The Andy Cohen Diaries, Fierce Queens and others.

Roku announced it had acquired some 75 Quibi shows and documentaries in January.
