FUSE GREEN LIGHTS THREE ORIGINAL SERIES FOR FALL 2008

Two New Studio Shows, "You Rock, Let's Roll" and "The Weekly Riff" Also Premiere in July

TCA, Los Angeles, CA (July 8, 2008) - Fuse, the national music television network, has green-lit production for three new original series to air this fall, including "Redemption Song (wt)" where down-on-their-luck singers get a second chance at music stardom; "Tour Me A New One (wt)" which takes viewers on musical explorations to the far-flung corners of the earth; and "Rock Bottom (wt)" which looks at troubled bands as they stage interventions and give ultimatums.

In addition, two new studio-based shows will premiere in the next two weeks - - "You Rock, Let's Roll," a music dating game show, on Monday, July 14 at 6pm ET and "The Weekly Riff," a music, pop culture, entertainment roundtable, on Friday, July 25 at 11pm ET.

"The addition of these shows furthers our commitment to new programming that has music at its pulse," said Matt Farber, executive vice president, Programming, Development and Digital. "With each new series, we're building on the depth and variety of music programming that viewers can find on Fuse."
