Viceland and Canadian media conglomerate Rogers Media are in production on two original hour-long docuseries, The Wrestlers and Post Radicals.
Hosted by long-time Vice host, vocalist for Toronto punk band Fucked Up and wrestling fan Damian Abraham, The Wrestlers (10 x 60) is an exploration of the wrestling world’s underground. Traveling from First Nations communities in rural Manitoba to Mexico’s Lucha Libre scene in Juarez, the series sees Abraham exploring the personalities involved in the sport of pro wrestling.
Post Radical (8 x 60) meanwhile, is hosted by pro-skater and amateur anthropologist Rick McCrank, who examines the various sub-cultures within the skateboarding community.
Both projects will premiere in early 2018.
In August, Viceland revealed its fall 2017 programming lineup, which includes season two of its first-ever scripted series Nirvanna The Band The Show and Fubar: Age of the Computer, as well as three digital series adaptations: Epicly Later’d, The Trixie & Katya Show and Most Expensivest Shit .
