ICP is coming...and more!
Fuse, the national music television network of The Madison Square Garden Company, will be expanding its music-related programming line-up with the launch of three all new original series -- Insane Clown Posse Theater, G-Thing and Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, the latter of which is a working title. Following a successful first season, Fuse is also set to begin production on the second season of Warped Roadies. These new shows -- all rooted in music -- reinforce Fuse's mission to bring strong, vibrant music content to the television landscape.
Production for the second season of Warped Roadies will start with the first stop on the Vans Warped Tour 2013, launched on June 15. This season will shadow old and new cast members as they hit the road for America's largest tour. Following the young crew from city to city, the show gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the legendary Vans Warped Tour and the lives of the men and women who make it possible.
For the first of three brand new shows, Fuse has taken its own digital video series, featuring hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse commenting on today's top music videos, and created Insane Clown Posse Theater, a weekly 30-minute linear program. After gaining significant attention on Fuse.tv, the show is making the jump to the television screen, where it will feature Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope's twisted take on what's new in music and popular culture. Every week, Insane Clown Posse will view a mix of music videos and viral clips and provide uninhibited commentary, as only they can. Insane Clown Posse Theater will feature comedy sketches and interviews with special guests in addition to the band's video observations. Insane Clown Posse Theater is produced by Fuse and is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 24.
Mark dem calendars, Juggalos!
In addition, Fuse has completed production on two previously announced series,G-Thing and Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. G-Thing will give viewers a look into the lives of G-Fella, an Italian-American rapper, and his larger-than-life family as they try to launch the first "family style" run record label: Tracketeering Music. G-Thing is executive produced by Fuse and Paulina Williams, and will premiere on Wednesday, July 24.
Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce explores the underground world of the New Orleans hip-hop scene known as Bounce. The series focuses on local hero and outrageous personality Big Freedia and fellow artists Mr. Ghetto, Sissy Nobby and others as they struggle to take their music to the next level of success. The show will premiere Wednesday, September 18.
Both G-Thing and Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce have been picked up for an 8-episode run.
So there is a LOT of quality programming and content to tune into with Fuse. Do it!
