Winner of the 2014 Emmy® for Outstanding Informational Series or Special, HBO's VICE returns for its fourth season, with 18 new editions hosted by Shane Smith: co-founder of the taboo-breaking multimedia company VICE.

Editions of VICE generally focus on two 15-minute stories, though "special editions" may encompass a single theme and run longer. As fans of the first three seasons can attest, some of the most compelling, important news stories go unreported by mainstream media outlets -- but not by VICE and its intrepid team of correspondents, who deliver hard-hitting stories from around the world, from the U.S. and Mexico to Jordan, Afghanistan and beyond.

Vice airs on Friday nights at 11:00 PM ET/PT immediately following ‘Real Time with Bill Maher.'
