VICELAND EXPANDS ITS LATE NIGHT LINEUP, SETS NIGHTLY SHOW FOR ACTION BRONSON
"THE UNTITLED ACTION BRONSON SHOW"
TO PREMIERE OCTOBER 23 AT 11:30 PM
A Message From Action Bronson
October 3, 2017, Brooklyn, NY - VICELAND doubles down on its late night line-up, adding a new half-hour starring network staple: chef, rapper, bon vivant and raconteur Action Bronson.
"The Untitled Action Bronson Show" will debut Monday, October 23 at 11:30 PM, following the channel's critically acclaimed 11PM late nighter "Desus & Mero."
Originating from VICE's Brooklyn HQ - home of the Munchies Test Kitchen - the nightly show will have Bronson doing what he does best - cooking and hanging out with an eclectic mix of guests from the world famous to local legends, top and upcoming performers and some of the best purveyors of delicacies from all over the globe.
Matching the tone of Bronson's popular VICELAND series "F*ck, That's Delicious," and the raucous "Travelling the Stars: Action Bronson Watches Ancient Aliens," viewers can expect a free-form, laid back, hilariously delicious half-hour that, like Bronson himself, is larger than life and never ever predictable.
The show is executive produced by longtime MUNCHIES / VICELAND producers and Bronson collaborators Chris Grosso and Lauren Cynamon alongside SallyAnn Salsano's 495 Productions (Emmy-nominated producers of "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party," "The Real," "Party Down South" and "Jersey Shore," to name a few).
Bronson is currently in the midst of a multi-platform takeover of pop culture from his recent album release "Blue Chips 7000," the "F*ck, That's Delicious" cookbook (which is currently topping the Amazon charts) and the Snapchat matchmaking show "Hungry Hearts."
Most TV channels are just a collection of shows - VICELAND is a collection of personal points-of-view. 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.
VICELAND features series examining all things culture, including music, food, technology, sex, fashion and more. Founding co-president and Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, currently the co-chief creative officer of VICE Media maintains creative oversight on the channel which features diverse series from documentary style programming to shows hosted by longtime VICE personalities like Action Bronson and Eddie Huang. The channel also serves as an experimental platform for familiar faces like Ellen Page, Gloria Steinem, Tyler the Creator, Diplo & James Van Der Beek and Michael K. Williams to explore personal projects while also breaking new talent like VICELAND's critically acclaimed late night hosts "Desus & Mero."
