Series information and content
Viceland, a channel which has been on the air for approximately half a year, has been coming out with the most edgy and provocative projects, and we expected nothing less from the creators of Vice. The most recent addition is Black Market with Michael K. Williams as a host. The project is an in-house Vice Media Production, with Brendan Fitzgerald, Spike Jonze, Eddy Moretti, Patrick Moses, Shane Smith and Michael K. Williams executive producing. The first season contains six 30-minute episodes.
Michael K. Williams’s project is about “underground economies”, illegal systems off the state radars. The first episode concentrates on carjacking rings in New Jersey. Once mostly used for the thrilling joyride and subsequently abandoned on the road, the cars are now being sold overseas to countries where it’s possible to pay your way through processing the paperwork. Other episodes focus on abalone poaching off the coast of South Africa, weapon trafficking within the United States from states with more lax gun control laws to those with more strict policies, illegal gambling and cough syrup that unexpectedly found popularity due to its opioid base.
Reception and renewal potential
The 9/10 IMDb rating denotes excellent viewer reception, and while Viceland had not made its viewership ratings publicly available for at least the first six months of its screen life (which have not gone by yet), we think that Black Market is one of its more popular programs. There’s been no word on whether we’ll see more of this project, which Williams considers his most personal to date. Please stay tuned, and we’ll bring you relevant renewal info as it becomes available.
