    VICE

    documentary

    VICE is unlike any TV news program you’ve ever seen, and it’s not even remotely like anything you’ll see on the 24/7 cable news channels. Its area of interest is the world — the entire world, not just the suburb beyond where you live — and the emphasis is on international news. "Back in the Dark": VICE Media founder Shane Smith has been traveling to North Korea for years, including during some of the most acrimonious periods in its history. Now, the country is engaged in a charm offensive and appears to be slowly emerging from isolation. In the wake of a series of inter-Korean summits and the first ever DPRK-U.S. summit, Smith returns to the Korean peninsula to see how Seoul and Pyongyang are reacting to the new détente. "California Burning": California is experiencing its worst wildfire season in a decade, and November's Camp Fire was the deadliest, most destructive fire in the state's recorded history. While the increasingly severe effects of climate change are partially to blame, another culprit may also be at play, according to a new government report. Gianna Toboni travels to the scorched town of Paradise to learn how California can survive a future of deadlier fires. "Doom Boom": Throughout human history, doomsayers - people predicting the end of the world - have lived largely on the fringes of society. Today, however, the doomsday industry is thriving, thanks to TV shows, movies, hyperpartisan politics and the news media. With the country's collective anxiety on the rise, even the nation's wealthiest citizens are jumping on board, spending millions of dollars on survival readiness in preparation for unknown calamities. Thomas Morton sets out to see how people across the country are planning to weather the coming storm. "Unfair": India is home to Bollywood, the world's most prolific movie industry. For those who dream of stardom, landing a leading role may depend on skin color. India's preference for fair skin has given rise to a skin-lightening industry worth nearly $500 million. Gianna Toboni heads to Mumbai to find out how this cultural bias is fueling the booming business of fairer skin. "The Road to Asylum": Over the last year, the Trump administration has increased its efforts to crack down on asylum in America. Citing widespread abuse and fraud in the system, the administration narrowed protections for those fleeing domestic and gang violence, an action that disproportionately affects people from Central America. Krishna Andavolu traveled to Central America and the U.S. southern border to see the effect of these policy changes on the fates of thousands of asylum seekers. "Lab Rat Nation": Pharmaceutical companies spend years seeking approval from the FDA to bring new drugs to market. During the first phase of clinical trials, healthy human beings are often paid thousands of dollars for trying unapproved drugs and reporting their side effects. Vikram Gandhi visited the bizarre world of human guinea pigs to get an inside look at these self-proclaimed "lab rats."

Ambitious Assistant District Attorney Katherine O'Connell, who grew up on the ranch next to the Lambs, also lends a hand in preserving justice.
