If you’ve been following the Diplo train you might have noticed he dropped a little mock ">“Day In The Life” video in June, starring Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek as a promo for his Mad Decent Block Party.
Well it appears that might become a little more, with Viceland opting to make their first scripted series a fictional take on Diplo’s life.
Currently titled “What Would Diplo Do?” The idea has been described as “Louie meets WorldStar HipHop crossed with This Is Spinal Tap“.
It’s set to be directed by Diplo with Van Der Beek and Diplo’s manager, Kevin Kotatsu in an attempt to create a six episode feature that “Doesn’t take itself too seriously.”
Is this something to look forward to or have Diplo and Van Der Beek missed the mark with this idea? Check out the original video below and tell us what you think.
