New shows debuting this year include three with summer premiere dates yet to be announced: “Abandoned,” in which pro skater Rick McCrank explores abandoned landmarks and architectural remains around North America with the people who once held these places dear; “Cyber War,” in which Ben Makuch explores hacking and surveillance geopolitics with officials, social dissidents, and elusive hackers; and “Dead Set on Life,” in which chef Matty Matheson and his Canadian compatriots eat everything from $6 subs at gas stations to the most sought-after ingredients on the planet.

Williams journeys into the dangerous world of illicit trade; and “Vice Does America,” premiering July 6 at 10 p.m., which follows three Vice staffers on a road trip around the country to meet different kinds of Americans, learn about them, and do what they do.
