**VICELAND'S "BALLS DEEP" - Hosted by VICE's Thomas Morton | First Trailer Released!**
On behalf of VICELAND, VICE's new TV network, we are excited to share the first trailer for BALLS DEEP - a brand new series hosted by Thomas Morton - which premieres on Wednesday, March 2nd at 11PM on VICELAND.
BALLS DEEP follows VICE producer and correspondent Thomas Morton as he perfects his version of immersive journalism, embedding himself into the lives of others to experience what life looks like from their point-of-view. Whether it's a Pentecostal preacher, a Muslim-American family, or gay bears in Provincetown, Thomas absorbs every part of his counterparts' lives: their customs, philosophies, their habits and habitats. BALLS DEEP is the most entertaining experiment in radical empathy ever committed to film (video actually).
Most TV channels are just a collection of shows - VICELAND is a collection of personal points-of-view. VICELAND will be a 24-hour cable channel specially programmed with engaging, original content across the worlds of culture, food, sex, fashion, music, sports, and much more. The network launches on February 29th, 2016. 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.
The channel is overseen by Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, a long-time VICE partner and creative director for the company, and features series hosted by VICE newcomers like Ellen Page, Ian Daniel, Michael K Williams and Hailey Gates, as well as longtime VICE hosts like Action Bronson, Thomas Morton and Eddie Huang. Jonze and VICE's chief content officer Eddy Moretti worked closely with the filmmakers in developing the VICELAND programming.
