Quibi has released the insane trailer for their upcoming series Bad Ideas with Adam Devine. As the brief amount of footage shows, the title is all too real. Adam Devine is the star of the warped take on an adventure series and he has brought along his Workaholics crew for some backup. In addition to Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson, the series also features Brent Morin, "CJ" Lana Perry, Rebel Wilson, and Thomas Middleditch.
In Quibi's Bad Ideas with Adam Devine, Adam Devine leads his famous friends and former Workaholics colleagues around the globe to tame danger and test out some truly bad ideas. The trailer features Devine as he jumps into piranha infested waters - that's not a bad idea, right? However, he steps things up a notch and straps on some meat shorts to act as human chum in order to catch the piranhas, which is definitely a horrible idea, as Anders Holm points out from a distance.
Bad Ideas with Adam Devine premieres on Monday, July 27th, exclusively on Quibi. The series is Devine's twisted take on an adventure series. In each episode, he and a famous actor or comedian will travel to a new location in search of adventures that are already inherently dangerous - only they'll add their own extra special sauce to ensure they are truly terrible choices. This is only teased in the little bit of footage that Quibi has presented.
Bad Ideas with Adam Devine also hopes to have the Workaholics crew learn things about themselves. Entering a chili pepper eating contest with the most scorching peppers on earth when you don't like spicy food is one way to possibly get into the world of spicy food. Visiting a haunted place to purposely conjure a demon could help get over the fear of the supernatural. Driving the narrow cliff trail aka The Death Road in South America in an ice cream truck is just plain crazy. For Devine and his friends, this ill-conceived way to experience the world is just their (bad) idea of travel.
Bad Ideas with Adam Devine will follow Quibi's mission statement to deliver quick-bite original content that fits into any moment of your day.
