“We’re excited to release DICE in its entirety across our streaming, on demand and authenticated viewing platforms,” said Gary Levine, President of Programming, Showtime Networks Inc. “With its six episode run, we feel this comedy is ideally suited to being consumed all at once. We’re always looking for new ways to make our programming stand-out, and we’re confident that a ‘DICE binge’ will appeal to both fans and skeptics alike, and help spread the word about his very funny new SHOWTIME series.”
Created by Scot Armstrong (Old School, The Hangover Part II), DICE chronicles life in the Vegas suburbs, as Andrew Dice Clay tries to live his life while trapped in the skin of “The Diceman.” Whether he’s attempting to pay back his gambling debts, manage his sons’ heavy metal band or fend off pumped up fans, this show shines a light on the sides of Dice we’ve never seen before. Yet all the while he dons his trademark black leather jacket and fingerless gloves, ready for a comeback. The series executive producers are Armstrong, Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Andrew Dice Clay, Bruce Rubenstein, Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. DICE is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
