"Vice" (TV show) on HBO is an innovative newsmagazine show hosted by Shane Smith, founder of the revolutionary new media company of the same name, and two correspondents, former intern Ryan Duffy and "Dos & Don'ts" book editor Thomas "Baby Balls" Morton. The weekly series will showcase a mix of stories from around the globe. The series smashes barriers of decorum to cover such stories as out-of-control political assassinations in the Philippines, the sumo/Mixed Martial Arts craze that has swept Senegal and the precarious nuclear stare-down in Kashmir.

As U.S. troops prepare to leave Afghanistan, the Taliban stoops to an all-time low by recruiting confused, innocent kids as young as six to be suicide bombers.

A kindly South Korean preacher runs an underground railroad to rescue young North Korean women from sex slavery in China.

A hallucinogen is so powerful that it's banned by the U.S. government, but is the key ingredient in a witch doctor's bizarre ritual designed to cure heroin addicts.

These are the kinds of stories — usually overlooked by mainstream media outlets — that will be presented on the newsmagazine series.

Founded by Shane Smith and Suroosh Alvi in 1994, the Vice company now operates in 34 countries worldwide and attracts tens of millions of viewers and readers to its network of online channels dedicated to music, fashion, travel, news and sports. Vice's international digital platforms and magazine are Gen Y's most popular and entertaining source for news, part of a global media powerhouse that also includes a television production studio, a record label, an in-house creative services agency and a book-publishing division.

HBO's "Vice" is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti, Vice's chief creative officer, with CNN's Fareed Zakaria serving as consultant.
