Tubi Lines Up The QB Bad Boy and Me Movie & The Z- Suite Comedy


Tubi has lined up new originals, including The QB Bad Boy and Me, based on the breakout Wattpad YA novel.

The QB Bad Boy and Me has over 31 million reads on Wattpad. The movie adaptation stars Siena Agudong (Netflix’s Resident Evil series), Noah Beck in his feature film debut and Drew Ray Tanner (Riverdale). The film tells the story of Dallas (Agudong), a burdened but headstrong dancer who is determined to get into the best dance school in the country—her late mother’s alma mater. However, that dream is suddenly derailed when the cheeky yet secretly grieving football star, Drayton (Beck), crashes into her life with a unique story of his own. Will the two of them be able to grow into their dreams together, or will their dreams be sidelined?

“Tay Marley’s novel has been a Wattpad sensation with millions of readers around the world who fell in love with this special coming-of-age romance,” said Aron Levitz, president of Wattpad WEBTOON Studios. “We couldn’t have asked for a better partner in Tubi to help us adapt this story, and we can’t wait for fans to see just how perfectly Noah and Siena bring the beloved characters of Drayton and Dallas to life.”

Tubi will premiere the generational comedy The Z- Suite, starring Lauren Graham, in 2025. The workplace comedy is set at a boutique New York ad agency where generational divides see the established C-Suite and rising Gen Z employees collide. After a company decision spirals out of control, the agency’s reigning executives are pushed out and the Z-Suite employees are suddenly put in charge, ultimately testing both generations’ skills and patience.

“When I first read the script for The Z- Suite, I responded to Katie O’Brien’s fresh and funny take on the workplace,” said Graham. “The character of Monica is smart, strong, and appealingly a bit unhinged. I’m excited to work with the team at Tubi as they ramp up their Originals slate and continue their ascent in the streaming space.”

Tubi’s Purple Carpet will be rolled out for the first time as part of FOX’s Super Bowl Pregame coverage in New Orleans. Model and actress Olivia Culpo will be Tubi’s official correspondent for the Purple Carpet, celebrating the culture surrounding football’s biggest event.

“I’m so excited to be Tubi’s official correspondent at the Super Bowl,” said Culpo. “I’ll cover everything happening behind the scenes, the pre-game hype, and, of course, the fashion.”

According to the March 2024 Nielsen Gauge, Tubi grew its share of U.S. total view time over 60 percent since debuting on the list just over a year ago, a faster growth rate than any other streamer. With nearly 80 million monthly active users, over 60 percent of Tubi viewers are cord-cutters and cord-nevers.

“Tubi is committed to culturally relevant storytelling that speaks to the cordless generation,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer at Tubi. “From culture-driven pre-game coverage for the Big Game to a fan favorite movie based on a breakout YA novel, to the amazing Lauren Graham headlining a workplace comedy steeped in generational conflict, Tubi’s ’24-’25 slate is as compelling for our audience as it is desirable for advertisers.”
