Cara Delevingne is the latest name to join the Quibi content push.

The “Suicide Squad” and “Carnival Row” actor is set to host and executive produce a practical joke-based show for the fledgling short-form content platform.

In each episode of the show, Delevingne and a group of female accomplices will “wreak havoc,” executing a new stunt or practical joke which will put them in “unwieldy and unpredictable situations in the process.”

“I am so excited to be partnering with such a revolutionary streaming service like Quibi and cannot wait to unleash some necessary mischief,” said Delevingne. “As someone who watches so much content on my phone, this feels like such a perfect partnership.”

The series is being produced for Quibi by ITV America’s Sirens Media, with the company’s president Jessica Sebastian serving as executive producer.

“Cara’s an icon in so many ways, and it’s a privilege to partner with her to develop something that authentically encapsulates her unique energy and sensibility,” added Sebastian. “As far as I know, a series in this space with this level of female guidance and representation, both in front of and behind the camera, is unprecedented, and we’re ecstatic to bring this new take on the genre to the ideal platform in Quibi.”

Delevingne is represented by The Lede Company, WME and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.

The prospective show is one of dozens in the works at the Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman led platform, which is slated to launch in April 2020.

The company is attracting A-list talent across the board, and has announced a slew of projects including Steven Spielberg’s “After Dark,” a horror series users will be able to watch only between sundown and sunrise local time. Other partners include Guillermo del Toro, Antoine Fuqua, Sam Raimi, Jason Blum, Steven Soderbergh, Catherine Hardwick, Anna Kendrick, Doug Liman, Laurence Fishburne and Stephen Curry’s Unanimous Media. Quibi also has ordered shows featuring Tyra Banks, Chrissy Teigen, Don Cheadle and Idris Elba as well as a remake of MTV’s “Punk’d.”

The Trevor Project will honor Cara Delevingne with the Hero Award at its upcoming TrevorLIVE New York gala.

Delevingne has supported The Trevor Project‘s efforts to end LGBTQ youth suicide rates, in addition to using her platform to speak out about mental health issues, women’s rights and animal conservation. On screen, she has acted in “Her Smell,” “London Fields” and “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”

“I’m humbled and truly speechless by The Trevor Project’s decision to honor me with this year’s Hero Award,” she said in a statement. “A hero to me is someone who stands up for what they believe in. They help to make change for those who are underserved or discriminated against. I strive to acknowledge those who feel like they don’t fit into a box and make sure they know, in both good and bad times, that there is always someone there to support them. I’m inspired and motivated by The Trevor Project’s tireless, life-saving work to support LGBTQ youth in crisis, and I’m extremely proud to be a part of such a resilient community.”

The nonprofit’s annual gala will be held on June 17 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Previous TrevorLIVE honorees include Ryan Murphy, Lena Waithe, Greg Berlanti, Rita Ora and Tom Ford.
