Vice TV

"Taste merchant" (-FastCo) Shane Smith, cofounder of ViceMedia, is currently working with HBO and Bill Mahrer to produce a "younger" 60 Minutes.

"Programming could include segments on topics ranging from slave labor in the Sudan or wars in the Congo to domestic issues such as America's methamphetamine epidemic."

"Vice TV" could air on HBO as soon as next fall, he said, although Vice will likely have to shoot a pilot before HBO agrees to air the series."
