The innovative news magazine show VICE kicks off its 12-edition second season FRIDAY, MARCH 14 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), immediately following “Real Time with Bill Maher,” with other new editions debuting subsequent Fridays at the same time. HBO partners with VICE, the revolutionary new media company of the same name, on the Emmy®-nominated weekly series.
Always unorthodox and at times irreverent, VICE takes viewers around the globe as its correspondents cover stories often overlooked by traditional media outlets. When reporting on today’s most pressing issues, from anti-government rebellions to hotbeds of terrorist activity to conflict and corruption, VICE uses an immersive documentary style to bring a unique perspective to the events shaping the future.
Hosted by VICE Media founder Shane Smith, the series is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith, Eddy Moretti, VICE’s chief creative officer, and BJ Levin, with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria serving as consultant.
In the 2014 season, VICE investigates a broad range of topics, traveling to global locations to report on everything from rampant U.S. military waste and corruption in Afghanistan to extortion, torture and killing in Rio’s favelas, and terrorist training in Dagestan.
