Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch 'Ancient Aliens, alternately titled simply Action Bronson Watches Ancient Aliens is a comedy documentary series produced in 2016 by Viceland where rapper/gourmand/world traveler Action Bronson sits on a couch and smokes weed with his friends while watching Ancient Aliens. Bronson is most often accompanied by music producers The Alchemist and Knxwledge, his cousin Big Body Bes, and various guest stars, including musicians, actors, and other associates of his. According to producers Jordan Kinley and Hannah Gregg, the show was conceived as a way to address disgruntled viewers of the H2, the network that formerly aired Ancient Aliens before being replaced by Viceland on cable carriers in the United States. The show is notable for its use of greenscreen. The participants watch Ancient Aliens on a monitor while the show is greenscreened behind them. Objects float around in the background while the stoners smoke in the foreground. The original Ancient Aliens show supports the ancient astronauts theory popularized by author Erich von Däniken.
The show is free-form and unscripted, and Gregg says that they "literally will not tell [the guests] what they’re supposed to do". Each episode is blocked for an hour, giving an average runtime of 44 minutes. Traveling The Stars: Action Bronson & Friends Watch Ancient Aliens appears on VICELAND, the TV channel from Vice Media, Thursdays at 11 p.m.
