Quibi reportedly paid Reese Witherspoon $6 million just to talk, now laying off staff



The streaming service Quibi appears to have blown their budget on stars instead of staff.
Witherspoon got a $6 million payday for narrating 'Fierce Queens', a nature documentary.
Quibi has implemented layoffs and “cut overtime for its lowest-level staffers.”

Since its launch in April, Quibi has struggled to find its audience.
Jim Toth, Quibi’s second founder and head of content acquisition and talent is married to Witherspoon.
'Fierce Queens', the show has been one of the “weakest performers.”
