The New Streaming Service Goes Live on iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV Apps

LOS ANGELES, CA AND NEW YORK, NY – September 13, 2021 — Fuse Media, the Latino-owned, multicultural focused entertainment company, today announces the official September 13 launch of Fuse+ (https://signup.fuseplus.tv/), a new streaming platform dedicated to empowering and inspiring a multicultural, millennial audience. In addition, Fuse has announced a deal with Afro-Latina global star, musician, entrepreneur, author and activist Amara La Negra, who is known for her incredible talents, personality, natural charisma and activism. The first show to debut as part of the deal, Don’t Cancel Me With Amara La Negra, will premiere December 1 on Fuse+ and Fuse.

Don’t Cancel Me With Amara La Negra follows La Negra as she ventures into the streets of Miami to have honest conversations about the topics many have wondered about but may have been too afraid to ask about – especially in person – including immigration, colorism, body image, LGBTQIA+ rights and more. In each of the eight, half-hour episodes, La Negra will sit down with a panel of personalities including local advocates and business owners.

“Amara La Negra perfectly captures our brand’s point of view with her singular vision that thoughtfully pushes boundaries and challenges the norms of ‘what’s expected.’ Her contributions are important to the Fuse family and Don’t Cancel Me will be a defining part of the future of Fuse+,” said Fuse Media CEO Miguel “Mike” Roggero. “As our research has shown, young consumers demand empowering content that is representative, inclusive and authentic, and Fuse Media is launching Fuse+ as another step in serving this audience across all screens.”

Competitively priced at $1.99 a month with limited ads, Fuse+ is uniquely positioned as a brand created and curated by – and for – a young, diverse viewer who craves representation in their entertainment choices. As the only service dedicated to empowering the underserved, multicultural millennial and Gen Z audiences, Fuse+ hands the mic to its audience to create purpose-driven, binge-able shows featuring new voices and colorful stories that celebrate, motivate and elevate. The service will include a unique mix of exclusive content that airs day-and-date with linear TV premieres on the company’s flagship Fuse channel, along with some free ad-supported content.

THE INCREDIBLE DOCUMENTARY FILM ABOUT THE WOMEN WHO RISKED IT ALL TO PROTECT THEIR LAND DEBUTS ON FUSE JUNE 25, 2021

The Documentary Airs on Victory Day; the 145th Anniversary of the Battle of Little Bighorn

End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is airing in partnership with Ear to the Ground

LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK – June 9, 2021 – Fuse Media, a Latino-owned, multicultural focused, multiplatform entertainment company, will debut the tale of Indigenous women who fought for their land in the documentary film End of The Line: The Women of Standing Rock.

From Producer/Director Shannon Kring (2012: THE BEGINNING) and Co-Director Pearl Daniel-Means, End of The Line: The Women of Standing Rock tells the inspiring story of a group of Indigenous women who risk their lives to stop the Dakota Access oil pipeline construction that desecrated their ancient burial and prayer sites and threatens their land, water, and existence in modern America. The doc follows these powerful women on a 4-year battle, through to when the pipeline was officially ordered to be shut down in July 2020 – a huge blow to the Trump administration and US oil industry. This poignant film features expert testimonies about the effects of colonization and the history of U.S. violations of Indian treaties. Recently, a federal judge allowed the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue operating, meaning that is fight is long from over.

“Their fight played out on the world stage, but the women of Standing Rock have a story that is both timeless and universal,” said Producer/Director Shannon Kring. “Through them, we bear witness to the agony and triumph inherent in the struggle for identity. We are grateful to Fuse for giving voice to these incredibly inspiring women who continue to persevere in defense of Mother Earth.”

“Standing for justice is at the core of our principles and End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is a stunning portrayal of the power of community,” said Marc Leonard, Head of Content, Fuse Media. He added, “We’re honored to share this inspiring documentary as part of our engaging programming which proves that everyone has the power to make a difference.”

End of the Line: The Women of Standing Rock is the second feature documentary from humanitarian and Emmy-winning producer/director, Shannon Kring. She first created a culinary empire before leaving that life to document the struggles of Indigenous people around the globe. Shannon’s first feature documentary, 2012: THE BEGINNING, was the most-watched of 1,600+ programs at MIPDoc, aired on 20+ TV networks worldwide, and was an official selection at nearly 100 film festivals.

Shannon’s documentaries have been presented by dozens of governments, top international broadcasters, and institutions including the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, the Smithsonian Institution Museum of the American Indian, NASA, MIT, and the British Museum. Shannon works with the UN, US Department of State, USAID, UNEP, and other global bodies concerning the Indigenous and other marginalized members of society, environmental sustainability, animal welfare, human rights, and cultural preservation. She is a UNWTO Liaison and serves as Honduras’ Official Goodwill Ambassador.

End of The Line: The Women of Standing Rock is produced by Red Queen Media and is airing in partnership with non-profit organization, Ear to the Ground.

Shine True offers a wealth of perspective to everyone who seeks to explore their identity and express it beautifully.”

“OUTtv has a mission to tell stories by and for the LGBTQ2+ community. We’re excited to provide a platform for these stories to be shared with the world,” said Philip Webb, COO of OUTtv. “In life there is no guide or handbook on self-expression for us to follow, but we hope Shine True can inspire and show the importance of living authentically beyond the confines of a binary social system.”

New Documentary is the Spiritual Sequel to Director David Modigliani’s HBO Doc Running With Beto and Final Film In His Trilogy Exploring Texas Politics

LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK (September 17, 2020) – Fuse Media, a cross-platform entertainment media brand serving a multicultural Millennial and Gen Z audience, will debut the new coming-of-age documentary film Ready Or Not. Part of Fuse Docs, the organization’s award-winning documentary franchise, Ready Or Not will premiere on October 3, 2020 at 9pm ET.

From filmmaker David Modigliani (Running with Beto, Crawford) and Co-Directed by Paloma Martinez, Ready Or Not follows 17-year old activist Marcel McClinton in his race against a powerful incumbent for a seat on the Houston City Council. Charismatic, outspoken and determined, McClinton proves an unlikely but compelling candidate as he wrestles with the adult challenges of the political arena and the intense pressures of running a citywide campaign, all while attending high school. McClinton runs for office to bring positive change to his community; as the film reveals through his campaign journey, he also learns what it really means to be a leader – and a man.

“Ready Or Not is a compelling portrait of a teenager trying to create a better world through leadership. We hope Marcel’s story inspires and empowers viewers to follow in his footsteps and become equally passionate about political activism in their own communities, so they too can make a difference,” said Marc Leonard, Head of Content, Fuse Media. He added, “We are delighted to debut this extraordinary new documentary and we remain committed in providing viewers engaging and inspiring programming that demonstrates that people of all ages and backgrounds can make a positive impact.”

Ready Or Not is the third Texas politics-focused documentary from the filmmaker. Running with Beto, which originally debuted on HBO, follows Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s campaign to unseat Ted Cruz in the U.S. Senate. Crawford is a documentary about the impact of President Bush’s relocation to the small town of Crawford, Texas, after announcing his candidacy for president. Modigliani has also produced several other documentary films.

Ready Or Not is produced by Live Action Projects. David Modigliani, Rachel Ecklund and Paloma Martinez are producers.

Fuse Docs is a documentary franchise that has won Peabody and Emmy Awards, and is the recipient of multiple NAMIC, NAACP Image, and Imagen award nominations. Spotlighting young, idealistic, and diverse people who celebrate their cultural heritage and identity, confront issues, and overcome prejudice, Fuse Docs have been presented in partnership with such prestigious organizations as Equality Now, UnidosUS and NAACP.

Fuse Greenlights Like, Share, Dimelo — Bringing Digital Original to TV, with Series Premiere Set for September 21

LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK – JULY 9, 2020 – Fuse Media, a cross-platform entertainment media brand serving a multicultural Millennial and Gen Z audience, is bringing digital original Like, Share, Dimelo to its flagship linear channel.

Premiering September 21 on Fuse, Like, Share, Dimelo is a hilarious and unfiltered talk series hosted by Latina comedians, Dee Nasty (Darlene Demorizi) and Sasha Merci, who explore trending topics in Latinx and millennial issues, include politics, pop culture, dating and sex. In Like, Share, Dimelo – which originally launched in April 2020 as a short-form digital series – the duo has looked to answer questions such as the meaning of Latinx, cultural appropriation in plastic surgery, and the mind-bending simulation theory of this thing called life.

“We are beyond grateful to have this platform on Fuse as a space to express ourselves as two Dominicanas from the Bronx. Whether it be roasting the latest pop-culture scandal or educating ourselves on more serious topics in the Latin community and today’s political climate, we hope to impact our viewers and be a part of the representation that is desperately needed on our TVs,” said Dee and Sasha. “We are ecstatic to make the jump from digital to cable this fall and we only have one word for people expecting us: ‘preparense’ 😉.”

The newest digital episode of Like, Share, Dimelo now available on Fuse.tv, YouTube and other digital platforms, features special celebrity guest, Amara La Negra. In it, she discusses her work as an activist, the Black Lives Matter movement and why she feels the world as a whole has to continue to fight inequality and overall racism which continues to plague our society.

“Sasha and Dee are extraordinary talents, super funny, and not afraid to take risks while tackling a wide spectrum of subjects, and we are proud to further invest in them, and add their voices to Fuse’s fall primetime lineup,” said Jon Scarlett, head of the company’s Fuse Content Studio, which produces the show. “We have seen what they can do with 15 minute digital episodes, and can’t wait to see what they come up with next.”

FUSE MEDIA UNVEILS LINE-UP OF MUSIC CULTURE-FOCUSED CONTENT TO ENGAGE AND EMPOWER ITS YOUNG, MULTICULTURAL AUDIENCE

8 New Series Include BUST IT OPEN, MING’S DYNASTY, STRUGGLE GOURMET and UNLEASHED (wt)

6 Series Renewed Including BIG BOY’S NEIGHBORHOOD, MADE FROM SCRATCH, SUGAR AND TOYS, THAT WHITE PEOPLE SHIT, FUSE FILMS and Peabody & Emmy-Winning FUSE DOCS

LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK – APRIL 9, 2020 – Fuse Media, a cross-platform entertainment media brand serving a multicultural millennial and GenZ audience, today unveiled a new programming line-up bolstered by both original and renewed series. The slate of originals – which includes many returning series and several concepts that originated on digital before coming to linear TV – leans into music culture to create an expanding collection of engaging, empowering, and unifying programming.

In keeping with its successful development strategy, Fuse Media is greenlighting two linear series that were initially incubated by the Fuse Content Studio for digital – Bust It Open and Struggle Gourmet, the latter hosted by Chef Dariany Santana. The studio, which launched two years ago to diversify Fuse Media’s development slate with original formats created and produced in-house, has successfully created concepts that debut on digital and migrate to linear. Made from Scratch – today renewed for a second season – was the first such series to premiere on Fuse after digital success.

Fuse’s first foray into adult animation continues to be successful, as Sugar and Toys is also being renewed for a second season. The mash-up – think Saturday morning cartoons, social commentary and music culture parody – has made its mark by speaking directly to the trends and issues most relevant to a millennial audience.

“Our expanded content slate reflects an unwavering commitment to entertain and empower a young, multicultural audience through the unifying theme of music culture,” said Fuse Media Chief Content Officer J-T Ladt. He added, “Now more than ever our audience is looking for aspirational content with a purpose and by incubating our formats digitally, we’ve been able to listen to them and adapt along the way.”

The 2020 line-up also includes several series that are the result of unique partnerships with media companies such as Genius, NTWRK, iHeartMedia and Complex.

The new and returning content is complemented by Fuse Media’s recently announced Be Change call-to-action, social responsibility initiative, which launched on March 30. Its first iteration, Be Change: Be Home, is a series of an-air interstitials, graphics, digital and social media messaging aimed at keeping Fuse’s audience informed, active and mentally stimulated while practicing social distancing. In the coming months, additional content will roll out to educate, inform and empower this audience to impact change around different issues, many of which are also addressed in the returning, award-winning Fuse Docs series of documentaries.

Also, building off its 2019 Fuse Multicultural Insider report which gave insight on inclusion and a modern look at the multicultural relationship between brands and consumers, for 2020 Fuse will release a continuation titled Empowerment. Going Beyond Representation and Inclusion. This year’s study – again commissioned by Fuse with NRG – explores what the new definition of empowerment is to young millennials and GenZ audiences, and what their expectation is of brands and content partners who are looking to be considered a trusted empowering partner. For example, the soon to be released survey showed that entertainment is the No. 2 form of empowering content, with music as the No. 1 form of delivery.

Said Fernando Romero, Fuse Media’s head of ad sales, “We’ve honed in on crafting stories that celebrate the struggles, successes and impact of artists and creators, resulting in a robust slate of long- and short-form narratives. As the only music culture entertainment brand aimed specifically at the Latino and multicultural audience, we own a reciprocal, trusted relationship with our viewers, which makes Fuse an ideal platform to align brands with artists, celebrities and influencers to tell authentic and empowering messages that deliver results, for our partners.”

The slate of empowering, music culture programming coming to Fuse includes:

NEW ORIGINAL SERIES ON FUSE:

· Bust It Open (5×30) – In keeping with the wildly popular unboxing genre, talent will bust open five boxes to uncover a series of streetwear items. Once all items are revealed, the guest will guess today’s resale price of each item and attempt to place the items in order of least to most expensive in effort to win the coveted items. Produced by the Fuse Content Studio, the series will debut with a linear format after initially premiering on Fuse’s digital platforms. It will also incorporate first looks of exclusive product launches from NTWRK as part of a joint partnership announced in December.

· Genius x Fuse (10×30; premiered March 18) – the recently announced partnership between Fuse and Genius brings the world’s biggest collection of song lyrics and music knowledge to linear television for the first time.

· Struggle Gourmet (10×30) – The come up is hard. It requires long nights, hard work, and lots of bad food. Struggle Gourmet celebrates that grind by taking popular artist’s taste buds on a flashback to the meal that powered their success. Each week, TV personality and chef Dariany Santana and a celebrity guest will talk about the artist’s journey and the meals that brought them comfort through the hardest days of their struggle. Then, to symbolize their current success, Dariany will recreate that meal using the most expensive items on the market. $500 Twinkie? Done. $1,500 bowl of ramen? Simple. And once both the cheap and expensive versions are on the table, the artists will do a taste test to determine which is better…it’s struggle classic vs new & bougie. Produced by the Fuse Content Studio, which initially developed the series for digital, and is now bringing it to linear TV.

· Unleashed (working title; 10×30) – Unleashed is an artist profile unlike any other. In every episode, host Jimmy O. Yang (Crazy Rich Asians, Silicon Valley) takes his lovable pug, Toffee, to meet up with pop-culture icons and their furry best friends. After a quick sniff, they’ll head out on a comedic adventure, hitting some of LA’s most dog-friendly spots, and revealing a side of the celeb only their beloved pets can bring out.
