New streaming service Quibi is coming out on April 6, and with it comes a whole new slate of original, star-studded content. The service boasts no fewer than 50 original shows upon launching and plans to release much, much more in its first year. One program we’re excited about? Jennifer Lopez’s new show Thanks a Million, which is giving $1 million to ten people in need along with an incredible set of co-hosts looking to give back.
Lopez is the executive producer behind Thanks a Million, which features ten grateful celebrities — Lopez, Kristen Bell, Nick Jonas, Tracy Morgan, Aaron Rodgers, Yara Shahidi, Gabriel Iglesias, Anthony Davis, Kevin Hart and Karlie Kloss — giving a person who’s impacted their lives $100,000. The money comes with one instruction: the recipient then has to pay half the money forward to someone else.
“Every day acts of kindness connect us in surprising ways,” supermodel Kloss says in the trailer, as we see these stars exchanging warm hugs and getting emotional as they see the difference this money makes in the giftee’s lives.
“Now more than ever, it’s a time to give back,” Lopez wrote on Instagram while promoting the show. “Join me in starting a chain of kindness.”
We can’t think of a more beautiful way to celebrate human connection and generosity than this show, and we’re barely holding it together from the trailer. At a time when it would be so easy for the world to be selfish, we’ve found more ways to give back than ever. Thanks a Million is hopeful show we’ll need to get us through these next few months.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez may have to put their wedding plans on hold, but their love story is as beautiful as ever. Here’s a complete timeline.
