Quibi, you beautiful tropical fish, you’ve done it. You’ve made a show too unique, too strange, and too irresistible. That show is Murder House Flip, and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a home improvement-style show where people try to fix up and sell houses that were once scenes of murder. It’s so ghoulish and darkly comedic that I have no choice but to watch every episode when it’s available. For now, I’ll settle for this trailer.

Murder House Flip

Hey, do you like home renovation? Cool. What about murder? Do you like that, too? If so, Quibi has a show just for you. It’s called Murder House Flip, and it’s described as “an unconventional new home renovation show that takes on the country’s most infamous homes: the ones known for mysterious murders committed behind their walls. Homeowners turn to high-end renovation experts, Mikel Welch and Joelle Uzyel, to remove the stains of the past and take these homes from morbid to marvelous.”

“This is where the bodies were buried!” someone says in this trailer as several people stand around in a yard, while another person says, “To afford to live by the beach we had to buy a house where a guy chopped his wife up.” And who among us can’t relate to that in modern-day America? I suppose you could argue that this entire premise is in very bad taste, and I won’t fight you on that. But I have to admit I’m incredibly curious to watch this show. Of all of Quibi’s weird new programs, this is the one that appeals the most to me.

Quibi is a new streaming service that hopes to appeal to busy people who can only watch stuff on their phones in “quick bites.” They have several types of short-form content for your viewing pleasure:

  • Movies in Chapters: Big stories told in chapters that are 7 to 10 minutes in length.
  • Unscripted and Docs: This episodic category is food, fashion, travel, animals, cars, builds, music, sports, comedy, talk, variety, documentary and more. All with episodes in 10 minutes or less.
  • Daily Essentials: Curated daily into 5-6 minute quick bites of news, entertainment and inspiration. Quibi’s Daily Essentials will quickly give viewers everything they need to know – and why it matters.

Quibi launches on April 6.
