About the Show

Vice is an American documentary-style news magazine series created and hosted by Shane Smith of Vice magazine which covers topics using an immersionist style of documentary filmmaking and follows Vice journalists and founders Shane Smith and Suroosh Alvi, and segment hosts Ryan Duffy and Thomas Morton as they go to different parts of the world interviewing people on political and cultural topics.

Subjects include political assassinations, young weapons manufacturers, child suicide bombers, Indian and Pakistani border politics, and the Chinese one-child policy.

Vice features startling, groundbreaking stories from around the world, smashes barriers of decorum to cover such stories as out-of-control political assassinations in the Philippines, the sumo/Mixed Martial Arts craze that has swept Senegal and the precarious nuclear stare-down in Kashmir.

Vice's fearless approach is like nothing else on television and will show some of the scariest, weirdest and most absurd customs and practices known to humanity.

As U.S. troops prepare to leave Afghanistan, the Taliban stoops to an all-time low by recruiting confused, innocent kids as young as six to be suicide bombers.

A kindly South Korean preacher runs an underground railroad to rescue young North Korean women from sex slavery in China.

A hallucinogen is so powerful that it's banned by the U.S. government, but is the key ingredient in a witch doctor's bizarre ritual designed to cure heroin addicts.

These are the kinds of stories - usually overlooked by mainstream media outlets - that are presented on Vice, which is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti, Vice's chief creative officer, with CNN's Fareed Zakaria serving as consulting producer and BJ Levin as co-executive producer.

The show takes its name from the leading youth entertainment company operating in over 34 countries including vice.com; an international network of digital channels; a television production studio; a print magazine; a record label; an in-house creative services agency; and a book-publishing division.
