Fuse will launch several new original series as part of its 2019-2020 programming slate, the network announced Wednesday.
The Latino and multicultural youth-targeted network’s new series include Made From Scratch, a docu-cooking series featured Latinx rapper Young M.A bonding with her grandmother over food; The Read with Kid Fury and Crissle West, a talk/variety show based on a popular podcast; and Sugar and Toys, an adult animated series.
Also in development is Reverse Brothers with Ayo & Teo, an animated series that features a hip-hop/dance duo as they face challenges associated with galactic characters that frequent their pawn shop, said the network.
The new shows join returning shows T-Pain’s School of Business, Future-History, Lie Detector, Complex x Fuse and Mind Massage.
“To successfully target this highly elusive audience, we’ve needed to experiment across platforms and find innovative ways to engage viewers,” said Fuse Media chief content officer J-T Ladt in a statement. “Continuing with this strategy, Fuse is migrating nontraditional IP that already has a built-in multicultural audience to the linear channel.”
