VICELAND ANNOUNCES NEW PROGRAMMING SLATE

EMMY-NOMINATED NETWORK ROLLS OUT THREE NEW SERIES; RENEWS TWO POPULAR SHOWS; EXPANDS DISTRIBUTION WITH DIRECTV

November 15, 2016, Brooklyn, NY - VICELAND, the new channel from VICE Media and A+E Networks, is premiering three new series with "Payday," which just premiered on the network, and two others to follow in December: "Big Night Out" and "Bong Appétit." In addition, the network brings back two of its most popular shows for new seasons: "Kings of the Road" and "Weediquette."

Said VICE Media Founder and CEO Shane Smith: "I am just tickled pink to announce VICELAND's new series and also very happy with how our distributors across the board like DIRECTV are embracing VICELAND not only on traditional platforms but OTT as well. VICELAND continues to grow in audience and reach with our core cohorts being millennials. We are having a lot of fun with VICELAND and see this as only the beginning of our evolution as a brand. Vive la difference!"

DIRECTV recently broadened distribution of VICELAND to millions more potential viewers, offering the network on Select, Entertainment and Choice packages via their satellite platform. DIRECTV will also carry VICELAND on their entry-level package on DIRECTV NOW when that service launches later this year.

ABOUT THE NEW SHOWS

"PAYDAY" (Fridays @ 9:00 PM) follows four 20-somethings over the course of a single pay-period to see how they live, spend, struggle, and thrive, tracing the fortunes of this emerging generation. Each episode will focus on a specific city from all over North America. The series premiere highlights Reno, Nevada, following the frontier town's residents' fortunes from a valet-turned-rapper, a funeral director, a cam girl, and the Muslim Republican County Chairman. Other cities include: Memphis, Salt Lake City, Baltimore, Houston, Toronto and Oakland.

"BIG NIGHT OUT" (debuting December 14 @ 10:00 PM) 2016 has been a rough year, but even in this bleak world, kids still dress up, gather, get loaded and dance to weird, loud music. Now Clive Martin - VICE UK's T.S. Eliot of rave culture - is traveling the planet to discover how partying has become an act of rebellion, sustenance and survival for young people everywhere.

"BONG APPÉTIT" (debuting December 15 @ 11:30PM) A combination that's equal parts Naked Chef, Martha Stewart and the Barefoot Contessa... with weed. Hosted by VICE's Abdullah Saeed, "Bong Appétit" explores the making and consumption of high-end cannabis-infused foods with different chefs and party guests each episode.

SERIES RENEWALS

In addition to new content, the network announced season renewals for its hybrid skateboard-reality competition show "KINGS OF THE ROAD" featuring Thrasher's annual scavenger hunt, pitting some of the best skaters in the country against each other on the adventure of a lifetime, putting their lives, limbs, and dignity in often ridiculous peril. Also returning for its third season, one of the network's breakout shows, "WEEDIQUETTE" with Krishna Andavolu, an on-going look at the role of marijuana in all points within the culture as the U.S. slowly begins to legalize it. Premiere dates will be announced at a later date.
