Viceland has set 11 PM, Monday, October 17 for the premiere of its new late-night show Desus & Mero.
Vice Media also announced today that the show’s production team will be headed by Emmy-winning executive producer Erik Rydholm (ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, Around the Horn, Highly Questionable).
Desus & Mero picks up where the duo’s Bodega Boys podcast ends, featuring the Bronx-bred pals Desus Nice and The Kid Mero sounding off on the issues of the day, covering news, pop culture and day to day life. The pair will be getting a head start tonight, by live tweeting the first Presidential Debate on the Viceland twitter handle (@viceland).
The show will originate from Vice’s Brooklyn headquarters.
