"What Would Diplo Do?" Comedy Series Gets Summer Premiere Date

You might remember a viral video clip last year chronicling a typical day in the life of Wynn Nightlife Resident Diplo. Fans loved the slight comedic twist to the story, as Diplo was actually played by TV heartthrob James Van Der Beek.The clip, aptly titled “Day In the Life of Diplo,”was a hilarious parody released to get buzz going for Diplo’s 2016 Mad Decent Block Party.

But the video had such a big impact that VICELAND picked it up to continue the story as a network mini-series this summer. The six-episode scripted series, now being called “What Would Diplo Do?,” will once again star Van Der Beek as Diplo, further documenting the everyday life and work of the music producing superstar.
