Instagram parody account, Kirby Jenner, will be hitting the small screen in a new show called Kirby Jenner. Describing himself as the fraternal twin of Kendall Jenner, he photoshops himself into photos of the family, paparazzi photos, and even magazine spreads. He has been doing this since 2015 and has amassed a large following of over a million followers on Instagram.
The show, which is set to launch on the upcoming mobile-first streaming service, Quibi, will follow his life. As with his Instagram, though, it is likely going to follow the character that is Kirby Jenner, not the person behind it.
The family is in on it with both Kendall and Kris Jenner slated to produce. The rest of the family will also make appearances in the series, too. In a statement, Kendall congratulated her “fraternal twin brother.”
“I’m thrilled that Quibi viewers will get an inside look at the life of my twin brother and he’ll finally have the opportunity to shine in this series.”
Kirby Jenner has never broken character, even during interviews he remains the fraternal twin.
Quibi is raring to launch in April 2020. The service diverts from the normal as it targets the mobile market. It will be producing shows that will run for eight to 10 minutes per episode. The platform already has reportedly greenlit 50 scripted and unscripted shows. Users will have to pay a $5 a month fee if they wish to use the platform but are willing to muddle through the ads. An ad-free subscription will also be available for $8 a month.
It seems like the streaming service industry is skyrocketing with services launching left and right. Last month Disney launched Disney+ and we still have HBO Max and NBC’s Peacock to look forward to.
