The newest venture for hipster tome Vice magazine is a news show on HBO set to launch Friday, April 5th at 11pm, one that will find founder Shane Smith and other correspondents traveling the globe to report on stories like North Korean forced labor camps, Taliban child suicide bombers and Somalian pirates. Never ones to underplay things, Vice has promised the series "will serve as the harbinger of a new age in documentary programming."

"What you're going to see on 'Vice' is not sanitized -- it's going to punch people in the face," Smith says in the trailer for the show, below. While Smith and Vice chief creative officer Eddy Moretti didn't exactly charm the critics in person at TCA in January, the footage looks undeniably interesting and ambitious in terms of what's covered.
