As big a star Diplo already is, Viceland are about to commemorate him with a show based on him. What Would Diplo Do? Starring James Van Der Beek, who has also written the show himself.
This all came around and got stuck in the creative team’s head during Diplo’s A Day In The Life type of promo from last years Mad Decent Bloc Party. Van Der Beek starred in this so he is actually familiar working with Diplo, which just makes him perfect for this role.
“I’m excited to have this show on the channel,” Moretti told Deadline. “It’s hilarious. It’s weird. James’ interpretation of Diplo is like a modern cipher into which we can read the whole of human existence…or not.”
