‘What Would Diplo Do?’ coming to Viceland on August 3
James Van Der Beek will reprise his role as a caricaturized version of Diplo, in Viceland’s first-ever scripted television series What Would Diplo Do?Described as a collection of parables, the tongue-in-cheek new series will take a glimpse into the life of the superstar DJ, with Van Der Beek acting as an executive producer alongside Diplo himself.
Viceland has commissioned six episodes, based on a premise originally explored in a short promo video for last year’s Mad Decent Block Party directed by Brandon Dermer. Though mildly absurd, the promo video went viral, reaping a positive response from its viewers, who applauded the Dawson’s Creek alum for his grade A impersonation.
What Would Diplo Do? will premiere on August 3 at 10pm on Viceland.
