About the show
Viceland tries to stay on top of current events and examine the current situation from the most down-to-earth and non-mainstream perspectives. One of the shows on the network`s programming slate this season is Payday. It is a program that explores one of the most universally relatable topics, and one even more poignant in the midst of a financial crisis that is the most large-scale one since the Great Depression – earning a living. The series is hosted by Rollie Pemberton and debuted on November 12, 2016.
Each of the eight one-hour episodes explores the millennials navigating their economic situations against the backdrop of one particular American city. The millennial generation faces a unique combination of factors, such as a good education, mounting debt, lack of interesting and well-paying jobs on the market, and the need to survive and provide for their families at the height of the global financial crisis. On the other hand, the incredible flexibility offered by the modern world as far as employment is concerned is unprecedented, and making the most of it requires a dynamic, creative and courageous approach.
Significance and chances of renewal
Payday is not as much a story about the various ways of making money, but, rather, about how to make money specifically under the current circumstances. It is a somewhat excruciating, but still an inspiring exploration of people`s everyday efforts to survive, some amazing, others far from successful. The cities featured include Memphis, Baltimore, Salt Lake City, Houston, Oakland, Toronto and Reno, providing a slice of life from different social groups. We would assume that there is much more to investigate in this field, and if the ratings prove strong enough, a second season of Payday should follow in the near future.
