DESCRIPTION: (from Showtime's press release, September 2019) Further establishing itself at the forefront of longform journalism and newsworthy explorations of our world today, SHOWTIME has acquired the rights to the Emmy-winning weekly newsmagazine VICE and ordered a new 13-episode season, to premiere in the spring of 2020. The announcement was made by Vinnie Malhotra, Executive Vice President, Nonfiction Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. Featuring a diverse group of award-winning journalists with a boundless passion and determination to inform, VICE has redefined documentary filmmaking with acclaimed reports on a range of international issues affecting young people today. Created to engage and occasionally enrage, the series has been nominated for 12 Primetime Emmy awards across its previous six seasons, with two wins including Outstanding Informational Series or Special. Known for signature work including exclusive on-the-ground reportage from the frontlines of global conflicts and civil uprisings in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and beyond, to its agenda-setting coverage of the issues dividing America today from LGBTQ rights and the climate crisis to immigration and gun control, the series delivers crucial in-depth journalism and perspective on some of the world's most pressing issues.
