Just over a year ago, Diplo released a hilarious Mad Decent Block Party promo video in which James Van Der Beek played the part of the Philly-hailing producer in a "Day In The Life of Diplo". It was later announced that Viceland picked up the idea and had began working on an entire TV show centered around Van Der Beek as Diplo. Yesterday, Viceland finally shared a trailer for their forthcoming series, "What Would Diplo Do?".
“WWDD” looks like it’s going to be absolutely hilarious. The trailer shows Van Der Beek as Diplo doing ridiculous things like throwing a violin into a blender, being stripped naked by a locked hotel room door and even fighting ninjas with a sword. While the trailer has appearances from Dillon Francis as well as actors Dora Madison, Bobby Lee and others, we can only hope that they’ll stick around for the entirety of the six-part series.
Van Der Beek will be working as actor, writer and producer for “What Would Diplo Do”, Viceland’s first scripted series to date. The mockumentary style series will premiere on August 3rd on Viceland. Check out the full trailer below and enjoy!
