Tyler, the Creator Lands Viceland TV Show
Tyler, the Creator is bringing his creativity back to television.
The Odd Future MC is teaming with Viceland for a late-night program, said to be inspired by his Golf Media app and the same production company that brought the “Kardashian apps to life,” according to High Snobiety.
This won’t be his first go-around on the silver screen. Fans may remember his three-season long stint on Adult Swim’s “Loiter Squad,” which debuted in 2012.
Few details are available regarding Tyler’s new series, but it is set to air during Viceland’s next programming block, according to the report.
Tyler won’t be the only rapper on the network. Currently, Viceland has Action Bronson starring in two shows: “Fuck That’s Delicious” and “Action Bronson & Friends Watch Ancient Aliens,” which recently featured Tyler as a guest.
In related news, Felicia the Goat is also cleaning up his act, or at least his Twitter handle. He recently changed his name from @fucktyler to @tylerthecreator.
RIP FUCKTYLER, WILL MISS YOU, ITS BEEN GREAT, BUT NOW ITS TIME FOR ME TO……IDK WHAT EXACTLY, BUT ITS TIME, IM OK WITH THAT. LOVE YOU.

Speaking to Afropunk, Tyler said the move was strategic. “My stock just went up because of that name change,” he explained. “How can I contact corporations, like ‘yo invest a bunch of money in me.’ Oh yeah, my name has this in it. First impression is automatically out the window.”
