Complex News will launch “Out of Bounds” on October 16th. The new show hosted by Gilbert Arenas and Mia Khalifa, will stream daily on the Complex News YouTube channel.
Arenas, the former NBA star that had his career cut short due to injuries, last played in the league in 2012. Agent Zero’s retirement has stayed relatively quiet except for his sometimes controversial Instagram posts. Khalifa, a social media star, first known for her work in the adult film industry, also generates attention with her posts. Earlier in the week, the “Out of Bounds” hosts appeared to have social media drama which created headlines, but turned out to be a PR stunt promoting the announcement of their new show.
“Out of Bounds” will have a raw , unfiltered approach to covering sports, attempting to provide the type of commentary seen from fans on social media. With Arenas and Khalifa both building a social media following due to their willingness to be candid even if it causes controversy, Complex viewed them as a great fit to host the program.
Complex, the popular bi-monthly print magazine, launched ComplexTV in 2012 streaming original content online. Their popular morning program, “Everyday Struggle” currently generates around 400,000 views daily.
