VICE WORLD OF SPORTS
VICE WORLD OF SPORTS is a series of compelling stories at the fringe of culture and politics, across a range of places and people through the one lens that connects them all: sport.
The VICELAND series premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, on VICELAND in April 2016 and later re-aired on ESPN.
WINNER - 2017 PGA® award for "Outstanding Sports Program"
NOMINATED - 2018 Emmy® "Best Sports Documentary" // Season 2 Episode 1: The Boom Squad
NOMINATED - 2018 PGA® award for "Outstanding Sports Program"
"Vice World of Sports is a contender and worth getting a ticket for. Hosted and executive produced by TV and sports journalism veteran Selema Masekela, the nine-episode (and one special) first season travels in search of the heart and soul of sport from Ghana to Serbia to a Michigan hockey town, explores gambling, and looks at the endurance of basketball on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Always much harder to make than they look, sports documentaries and sports investigations score when they take the viewer beyond the stats and even the athletes and into the context that creates the competitor and the game – and that’s what VWOS has nicely done."
"Given this is a new foray for Vice and the bar is quite high in this space, for a debut season from an upstart network Vice World Of Sports is off to a pretty stellar start. …The show delivers visually compelling and immersive storytelling, often finding hidden gems that look at the social and political narratives that connect to sports stories."
