Debut: FRIDAY, SEPT. 21 (7:30-8:00 p.m. ET/PT)

"Brainhackers": Advances in neurotechnology are blurring the line between biology and technology. An emerging push to implant electronic devices inside the human body and hardwire them to our brains may allow us not only to overcome a host of ailments, but also to open up new avenues of human experience. Thomas Morton gets an inside look at what might be the next evolutionary step for humankind.

"Fall of Rio": Brazil hosted the 2012 World Cup and 2016 Olympics in an effort to create wealth and improve safety and security for the nation's poor. Today, however, the country is in a financial crisis, the government is consumed by a monumental corruption scandal, and violence is rising, as drug trafficking gangs fight for control. Ben Anderson returns to Rio to see what happened.

The show is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

VICE is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith, Josh Tyrangiel; executive producer, Subrata De; consulting producer, Fareed Zakaria.
