James Van Der Beek Plays an Incredibly Dorky Diplo in the First Trailer for His Viceland Comedy
As previously reported, Viceland is set to develop its first scripted series with a comedy series about the life of EDM bro Diplo. Considering the fact that it's enlisted Dawson's Creek star James Van Der Beek to play the performer, we've been desperate for a glimpse at the series. Today, we get our first trailer.

The show was billed as "Louie meets WorldStar HipHop crossed with This Is Spinal Tap," and the trailer suggests it will certainly deliver on its modern-day mockumentary tone.

Van Der Beek shines as the aloof music star, and the one-minute clip suggests there will be plenty of foibles as he attempts to maintain his career.

Watch the first trailer for What Would Diplo Do? below. The show arrives on August 3.
