Vice Media- and A+E Networks-owned cable network Viceland, which is slated to launch on February 29, has unveiled features from its forthcoming original programming line-up, and their premiere dates.

The 24-hour linear specialty channel will air a raft of factual series, some of which have made their debut across Vice’s suite of online channels. Series include the Andy Capper-created Noisey (March 1, 10 p.m. EST/PST), a music-focused travelogue series hosted by Zach Goldbaum that explores the artists and communities in the most compelling international music scenes; and the Krishna Andavolu-fronted investigative series Weediquette (March 1, 11 p.m. EST/PST), which spotlights the people leading the charge in the evolving age of legal marijuana.

Other programs broadcasting across the recently-minted network are Gaycation on March 2 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, following actor Ellen Page and best friend Ian Daniel as they explore LGBT cultures and experiences from around the world; Balls Deep on March 2 at 11 p.m. EST/PST, in which long-time Vice correspondent Thomas Morton immerses himself into a variety of subcultures to see how different individuals live; culinary series F*ck, That’s Delicious on March 3 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, which chronicles the eating habits of host and rapper Action Bronson; and Flophouse on March 3 at 10:30 p.m. EST/PST, which features Clare O’Kane and Lance Bangs documenting the underground circuit of aspiring comedians living together in group houses.

The channel will aim to slot “engaging, original content across the worlds of culture, food, sex, fashion, music, sports, and much more.”

Viceland is overseen by Oscar-winning director and long-time Vice partner Spike Jonze and chief content officer Eddy Moretti, who serve as co-presidents of the new 24-hour lifestyle and entertainment channel from Vice and A+E Networks.
