Vice, ESPN partnership

May 4, 2016

Vice Media has agreed a deal to produce TV shows and web content for ESPN, the most-watched sports network in the US.

Disney-owned ESPN will air Vice’s The Clubhouse, in which athletes talk to viewers off the field, on both its TV network and online, and carry new episodes of Vice World of Sports, after they air on Vice’s cable network Viceland. The two companies also will jointly develop short-form series, both live-action and animated.

Under the accord, Viceland will also broadcast films from ESPN’s documentary series 30 for 30.
