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^th.

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^th. 

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
