VICELAND LAYS OUT NEW SLATE OF SHOWS

NETWORK DOUBLES DOWN ON WRESTLING WITH NEW GLOBAL DOCUSERIES THE WRESTLERS MAY 22 AND "EXTENDED CUT" EPISODES OF DARK SIDE OF THE RING

RAPPER 2 CHAINZ RETURNS FOR A THIRD SEASON OF MOST EXPENSIVEST PREMIERING JUNE 11 WITH ODD FUTURE MEMBERS IN JASPER & ERROL'S FIRST TIME

(May 7, 2019 -- Brooklyn, NY) -- VICELAND, the Emmy-winning youth lifestyle and entertainment network from VICE Media and A+E Networks, is rolling into the summer with a slate of new programming.

Initially teased at the company's NewFronts, VICELAND will premiere two new series and is bringing back audience favorite: 2 Chainz's MOST EXPENSIVEST for a third season. In addition, the network has greenlit four other series running the gamut from true crime to street racing -- plus a delightfully trippy new comedy series with hip-hop star Danny Brown.

ABOUT THE PREMIERES

Following the much buzzed about wrestling docuseries DARK SIDE OF THE RING, which is posting some of the network's biggest ratings to date, VICELAND premieres THE WRESTLERS on May 22 at 10pm ET. Hosted by hardcore musician and life-long wrestling fan Damian Abraham (lead singer for the Canadian punk band Fucked Up), the series goes beyond the world of mainstream professional wrestling to dive into the vibrant, fascinating and bizarre subcultures in the wrestling universe around the world. From Lucha Libre in Mexico to the women's wrestling scene in Japan to voodoo wrestling in Congo and countless points between.

In addition, the network will release special Extended Cuts of DARK SIDE OF THE RING beginning May 22 at 9pm ET with never-before-seen footage from the compelling tales of professional wrestling's golden age.

THE WRESTLERS is a Vice Studio Canada production and is produced and directed by Nathan Drillot and Jeff Petry. Damian Abraham co-produces. Chris Grosso is an executive producer for VICELAND.

MOST EXPENSIVEST returns for a third season on June 11 at 10pm ET. Grammy winning hip-hop superstar 2 Chainz continues his outrageous deep dive into the ever-expanding culture of excess. This season, Chainz and his ever-present canine sidekick Trappy put some extra focus (and extra cash) on the future -- from genetically grown meat and environmentally sustainable mansions to high-end technological advances in VR and audio equipment to Bluetooth enabled sex toys and a robotic dog pal for Trappy. The stacks pile up and Chainz finds out how big things get in Texas, visiting Dallas Mavericks owner, billionaire Mark Cuban for a taste of the luxury cowboy life, the highest-end Tex-Mex ever including $450,000 tequila, $250 hot sauce and trashing $1000 pinatas. Others joining Chainz to take financial irresponsibility to the next level are: fellow Grammy winner Erykah Badu, adult film star Kimmy Granger, NFL legend Jerry Rice, model/actress Amber Rose and fashion designer/reality star Angela Simmons (Run's House).

MOST EXPENSIVEST is a co-production of Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), Mustache Agency and VICELAND. Executive producers are Al Edgington & Joe LaBracio of CNE, John Limotte of Mustache, 2 Chainz & Coach Tek, and Nomi Ernst Leidner for VICELAND.

Premiering alongside MOST EXPENSIVEST on June 11 at 10:30pm ET is a hilarious new show from one of the co-creators of Jackass and Ridiculousness featuring Davon "Jasper" Wilson and Errol Chatham of LA's influential hip-hop collective Odd Future. JASPER & ERROL'S FIRST TIME follows the young friends as they try to heal current cultural divisions and lead by example to get people to experience the world outside their own proverbial bubble...which means trying things way outside their comfort zone. Whether it's fire walking or bull-riding, cuddle parties or colonics, they'll try it for the first time -- and unite us all in the process.

JASPER & ERROL'S FIRST TIME is a co-production of Jeff Tremaine's Gorilla Flicks and VICELAND. Tremaine, Shanna Zablow Newton and Lionel Boyce are executive producers alongside Patrick Moses for VICELAND.

ABOUT THE GREENLIT SERIES

VICELAND brings the endlessly creative, critically acclaimed and comedic Detroit hip-hop force Danny Brown to the channel in a psychedelic slumber party of a show. Executive produced by Derrick Beckles (The Eric Andre Show, Mostly 4 Millennials), DANNY'S HOUSE brings the cozy energy of Mister Rogers and the unpredictability of Eric Andre to a comedy-talk-variety show like no other. Celebrity guests are invited to hang out in the basement (and mind) of Brown. No one comes out the same.

DANNY'S HOUSE is a co-production with Mustache Agency.

The network hits the street literally with DONKMASTER. In a motorsport subculture show like no other, Sage Thomas (a.k.a. The Donkmaster) is the king of the donk street race scene throughout the South, leaving everyone else in his dust. The show follows him and his crew before and more importantly during these all-out street races with mobile works of art.

DONKMASTER is a co-production with Hoff Productions.

VICELAND puts its unique lens on true crime with two new shows: HOW TO ROB A BANK and FINE YOUNG CRIMINALS. HOW TO ROB A BANK goes deep inside individual bank heists with the perpetrators that tried (and failed) to pull it off. Meanwhile, FINE YOUNG CRIMINALS tells some of the most brazen stories of youthful ambition gone haywire as "average American kids" become smugglers, dealers, hackers, scammers, and thieves.

HOW TO ROB A BANK is a co-production with Antenna Pictures.

FINE YOUNG CRIMINALS is a co-production with IPC.

ABOUT VICELAND

Most TV channels are just a collection of shows - VICELAND is a collection of personal points-of-view. Everything at VICELAND has a reason to exist and a strong perspective. Our mission is to examine the world we live in, and explore the things that confuse us, make us curious, make us laugh, or awaken our sense of wonder.

Debuting March 2016, as a joint venture between VICE Media and A+E Networks, with creative oversight from Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, VICELAND features series examining all things culture, including music, food, technology, sex, fashion and more. The channel also serves as an experimental platform for familiar faces like 2 Chainz, Ellen Page, Gloria Steinem, Tyler the Creator, Action Bronson, James Van Der Beek, Michael K. Williams and Eddie Huang to explore personal projects while also breaking new talent like VICELAND's first late night show "Desus & Mero."
