NEW, ORIGINAL HALF-HOUR MUSIC COMEDY MASH-UP SERIES HOSTED BY MIKE E. WINFIELD TO PREMIERE SEPTEMBER 14TH AT 10PM EST

NEW EPISODES OF "VIDEO ON TRIAL: SPECIAL VIDEOS UNIT" TO FOLLOW AT 10:30PM EST

New York, NY (August 20, 2012) - Fuse, the national music television network of The Madison Square Garden Company, announced that Off Beat, a new, original half-hour comedy program featuring some of today's funniest music-themed viral videos, will premiere on Friday, September 14th at 10:00pm EST. Hosted by comedian Mike E. Winfield and featuring San Diego comic Mal Hall as his sidekick, Off Beat is a 30-minute weekly mash-up of the funniest and most outrageous music-themed Internet videos and viewer-created clips. The series, consisting of 12 episodes, will run through November.

A Baltimore native currently based out of Sacramento, Winfield has won various comedy competitions throughout his budding career and can currently be seen headlining comedy clubs and theaters across the country.

Joining Off Beat on Fuse's new Friday nights, Video on Trial: Special Videos Unit returns at 10:30pm EST with 12 episodes of culture vultures, including comedians Dan St. Germain, Sherrod Small and Helen Hong, dissecting some of today's hottest music videos.
