*(NEW PREMIERE DATE)
VICELAND celebrates the return of Action Bronson and his singularly unique show Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson & Friends Watch "Ancient Aliens" with a week-long premiere event.
The second season of the hilariously meta show featuring the rapper, chef and super-fan of History's "Ancient Aliens" begins Monday, August 5 at 9:00PM with new episodes airing every night (Monday -Thursday).
The network will celebrate the show's return, surrounding the premieres with encore airings from the show's first season at 8:00PM, as well as pairing premiere episodes with the actual Ancient Aliens episodes on which they're based (M-W at 10:00PM).
Season Two will feature a new roster of Aliens fans including musicians Cypress Hill, Dru Hill, and Miguel; actors David Alan Grier and TV's "Urkel" Jaleel White; and others sharing the couch (and the kush) with Bronson and his cohorts who include Big Body Bes and The Alchemist.
Starting Wednesday August 14, the show will air weekly at 9:00PM, leading into a double dose of Danny Brown with the new show DANNY'S HOUSE at 10:00PM and 10:30 PM.
ABOUT TRAVELING THE STARS: ACTION BRONSON WATCHES ANCIENT ALIENS
Hailed by The Boston Globe as "a stunningly elastic achievement in meta-television, [that] deserves a special Emmy that also functions as a bong," Action Watches Ancient Aliens features Bronson combining some of his favorite things: food, friends, the History series Ancient Aliens and weed. Each episode features Bronson and company watching, commenting, praising and extrapolating on the long-running series exploring controversial theories that extraterrestrials have visited Earth and influenced its culture for millions of years.
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.
Debuting March 2016, as a joint venture between VICE Media and A+E Networks, with creative oversight from Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, VICELAND features series examining all things culture, including music, food, technology, sex, fashion and more. The channel also serves as an experimental platform for familiar faces like 2 Chainz, Ellen Page, Gloria Steinem, Tyler the Creator, Action Bronson, James Van Der Beek, Michael K. Williams and Eddie Huang to explore personal projects while also breaking new talent like VICELAND's first late-night show "Desus & Mero."
