The rumor is true: Tyler, The Creator is getting his very own TV show on VICELAND. Last night, the network ficially announced Nuts + Bolts, premiering August 3 at 10:30 pm ET.
As earlier reports suggested, Nuts + Bolts will follow Tyler as he finds out “how things are made”—and given his eclectic tastes and endless curiosity, it promises to be a fascinating addition to an already exciting channel.
In similar fashion to Action Bronson's Fuck, That's Delicious, which was originally developed for YouTube, the show is being lifted from Tyler's GOLF Media app to cable television. Here's one clip from the original series where Tyler breaks down the making his “Fucking Young” video.
Of course, Tyler is no stranger to television. In 2012, Odd Future’s sketch comedy series Loiter Squad crashed onto Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, running for a total three seasons before coming to an end in 2015. He’s also appeared in episodes Punk’d, Workaholics and Black Dynamite.
Tyler isn’t the only artist getting his own VICELAND show this summer: according to Deadline, Brock Hampton will star in American Boyband, which follows them on their first headlining tour across North America, while Diplo lookalike James Van Der Beek will play a fictionalized version the DJ in a scripted comedy series called What Would Diplo Do?
