Tyler, the Creator is coming to late night. The Odd Future figurehead’s new show for Viceland, Nuts and Bolts, will debut later this summer in the 10:30 p.m. slot. Viceland announced the show’s Aug. 3 debut in a retweet from the Odd Future camp on Monday night (May 8), offering very little information on what fans can expect.

Last week, while attending the Viceland presentation at the Digital Content NewsFronts event, Wall Street Journal reporter Lara O’Reilly tweeted that the show would be about Tyler “finding out how things are made.”

The series borrows its name from a show originally developed for GOLF media, which included clips about the making of Tyler’s “F–king Young” video.
Tyler was slated to tour Europe this summer but unexpectedly canceled the dates on Sunday (May 7) with no explanation; a spokesperson for the rapper said no other information was available about the cancelation at press time.
