VICE, a news magazine series featuring startling, groundbreaking stories from around the world, debuts this spring, exclusively on HBO. VICE smashes barriers of decorum to cover such stories as out-of-control political assassinations in the Philippines, the sumo/Mixed Martial Arts craze that has swept Senegal and the precarious nuclear stare-down in Kashmir. VICE's fearless approach is like nothing else on television and will show some of the scariest, weirdest and most absurd customs and practices known to humanity.
VICE is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti, VICE's chief creative officer, with CNN's Fareed Zakaria serving as consultant. The show takes its name from the leading youth entertainment company operating in over 34 countries including vice.com; an international network of digital channels; a television production studio; a print magazine; a record label; an in-house creative services agency; and a book-publishing division.
