FIRST LOOK AT VICELAND'S "WEEDIQUETTE"
On behalf of VICELAND, VICE's new TV network, we are excited to share the first trailer for its show WEEDIQUETTE, hosted by Krishna Andavolu, which premieres on Tuesday, March 1st at 11PM on VICELAND.
In a weed show like no other, VICE correspondent Krishna Andavolu chronicles the science, culture, and economics of the emerging "green" economy. Each episode explores the impact of marijuana legalization across the United States and internationally, examining how people on all sides of this issue are dealing with the growing popularity and acceptance of this remarkable plant. There are many players in this weed revolution, and each one has a story to tell.
Most TV channels are just a collection of shows - VICELAND is a collection of personal points-of-view. VICELAND will be a 24-hour cable channel specially programmed with engaging, original content across the worlds of culture, food, sex, fashion, music, sports, and much more. The network launches on February 29th, 2016. 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.
The channel is overseen by Oscar-winning writer/director Spike Jonze, a long-time VICE partner and creative director for the company, and features series hosted by VICE newcomers like Ellen Page, Ian Daniel, Michael K Williams and Hailey Gates, as well as longtime VICE hosts like Action Bronson, Thomas Morton and Eddie Huang. Jonze and VICE's chief content officer Eddy Moretti worked closely with the filmmakers in developing the VICELAND programming.
