Vice Media’s VICE docuseries has been picked up by Showtime.
The cable channel has ordered 13 new episodes which will air sometime in the Spring of 2020.
Executive VP of non-fiction programming at Showtime had the following to say of the news:
“As so much of television news has moved in a direction of partisan coverage and talking heads, the team behind Vice continues to delve deep into the global issues, conflicts and newsmakers affecting our everyday lives. They also do it with an incredibly diverse cadre of journalists — both in front of and behind the camera. Their dogged pursuit of award-winning journalism is matched by stellar filmmaking and craft in this weekly documentary series. We’re honored and excited to partner with them moving forward.”
Vice Media CEO also commented on the good news:
“Our team of award-winning reporters, producers and editors have set the tone for gold-standard longform international reporting and we can’t wait to bring those stories to Showtime, who share our passion for quality storytelling, differentiated and important journalism, and distinctive voices that capture the critical issues facing our world today.”
