Join Conrad Thompson as he visits with the driving force behind VICE TV's "Dark Side of the Ring," Producers Evan Husney and Jason Eisener to discuss Episode One: Benoit.
The guys discuss the way season one came together, how it was almost shelved, working with VICE, when they wanted to make an episode about Benoit, how they got to know David through the process, who declined to participate, whether or not to address the "rumors" around the story, the relationship between Eddie and Chris, how Vickie was instrumental in the documentary, how many man hours have gone into the process, how to decide what should air and what shouldn't, how YouTube came to help, JR's take on Benoit not being in the Hall of Fame, CTE, whether or not the extra footage could ever be released, and of course a preview of what else is to come on Season Two!

And be sure to tune into VICE Tuesdays at 10PM Eastern to see the remainder of the season. VICE is Channel 271 on DirecTV and Channel 121 on Dish Network. Tonight's episode features New Jack and perhaps the word that best describes the episode is "insanity." You don't want to miss it!
