Vice Media and The Guardian newspaper have teamed up on a content partnership.

Under the deal, a team of Guardian journalists will work from Vice’s London offices to produce co-branded special reports and video formats that will air across Vice’s news outlets globally, in the U.S. on the weekly HBO series’ Vice News Tonight and HBO doc series Vice Specials, and in the UK on the channel Viceland.

“This partnership provides a test case for the way forward in multi-platform exploitation of content,” said Shane Smith (pictured), Vice Media co-founder and chief executive, in a statement. “And when that content is the foremost investigative news in the business it becomes even more imperative. Real, fact-based, trusted news has never been more important and this partnership, I am very excited to say, will provide just that.”

Guardian journalism has never been more relevant or in demand,” said Katharine Viner, editor-in-chief at Guardian News & Media. “This partnership recognizes the Guardian and Vice as pioneers in digital news and underscores our commitment to using video to open up our journalism in new and interesting ways.”

The Guardian team will be led by multimedia news editor Mustafa Khalili, who will work alongside Vice News producers and development executives to produce original content.
