"BLACK MARKET" WITH MICHAEL K. WILLIAMS PREMIERES SEASON 2 TRAILER

The revered actor's final documentary project returns to VICE TV on January 10th @ 10 PM ET/PT

BROOKLYN, NY (November 29, 2021)-- Today, VICE TV announced that Black Market with Michael K. Williams will premiere its second season on January 10th @ 10 PM ET/PT. Black Market explores the complex underworld of illicit trades and unravels how these criminal networks are reshaping our way of life. Offering an unflinching look into the lives of people operating in these illegal markets, host Michael K. Williams examines how these shadow economies have evolved since his journeys in the first season of the show.

The new season is an intimate portrait of the conditions from which black markets arise and the cultural reasons behind why they persist. Williams will give audiences unprecedented access into the new era of credit card scamming, how NYC's secret world of boosting and flipping has reshaped mainstream fashion, black market body modifications and more. Through Williams' uniquely raw and sincere approach to those he encounters, he ultimately seeks redemption for the individuals looking to thrive in a system that has failed them.

"Black Market is a testament to Michael K. Williams' dedication to criminal justice reform and social justice" said Jesse Angelo, President, Global News and Entertainment, VICE Media Group. "Michael was a longtime friend of our VICE family and shared our belief in having all voices be heard- especially those in marginalized communities. Michael's mission was to lift those voices up and we are honored to share this collection of new episodes."

"While completing Black Market has been very difficult given the loss of Michael, it's also been extremely rewarding to bring his vision for this season to the finish line" said Ben Freedman, Dion Sapp, Matthew Horowitz, David Laven and Matt Goldman, Executive Producers for Freedome Productions and Picture Farm. "Michael was a gifted storyteller, who poured his heart and soul into his work both on and off screen. Black Market serves as a bridge between them. Black Market was more than a TV show for Michael. It was a mirror to a life he lived. An everyday struggle to transcend life's obstacles. That fight isn't always pretty but his documentary storytelling is a testament to the brilliance of everyday people making their way in a complicated world. We're incredibly proud to be able to share this work with you."

A formal series announcement revealing further details about this upcoming season will be released in January.
