Back in January, James Van Der Beek shared news that he would be playing Diplo in a new TV show titled What Would Diplo Do? The show that is scheduled to premiere on Viceland on August 3rd is described as “Louie' meets WorldStarHip Hop crossed with This Is Spinal Tap.”
Aside from Van Der Beek's starring role, the actor is also the executive producer on the show as well as Diplo himself. The Oscar-winning director and Viceland co-president, Spike Jonze, is responsible for coordinating the show's existence.
